    Sweet boy full of energy

    Hi my name is Snickers but my foster mom calls me Obi. I was born in care with AARCS on New Year’s Eve! I am full of energy and I just LOVE to play with my dog foster sister. Being outside is my absolute favourite and I love helping with the gardening with lots of digging! If I could I would stay outside all of the time. I was born with a grade 6 heart murmur and sadly I haven’t outgrown it. The Drs say I might have Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) but I don’t let that stop me! I love running around and playing with everyone and I have loads of energy to burn. I have been taking beta blockers for a month and they have helped to control my heart murmur so now it’s showing as about a grade 2!

    When I come across a new situation I feel pretty scared so I need a new home that will go slowly with me to start with. Once I know it’s safe I get braver but it does take me a little while. I don’t mind going on car rides so much now but that was very scary for me at first!! I do like to jump up at my people that I love and fast movement scares me so small children aren’t great for me but I would love a dog friend to play with as it makes me feel more confident. I might have to take medication for my heart for the rest of my life but that’s ok because I love taking the pills if they are covered in peanut butter!!!! Also I LOVE giving face kisses all the time!
