Snow’s best Christmas yet!

When Snow arrived at the Rotorua pound he probably didn’t know his future was about to get a whole lot brighter.

Snow was dumped at the pound on the night of 24 October 2018. Snow was severely underweight and was fondly nicknamed Skelator by the team at the pound. He was also covered in kennel sores, lice, and fleas.

While it was clear that Snow’s life had been rough until this point, his background a mystery, he had managed to retain his soft and gentle nature throughout his ordeal. He got along well with both humans and other dogs which made him an ideal candidate for rehoming.

But first Snow had to regain his health.

For 42 days Snow was cared for by our pound keeper and Snow’s health improved immensely. He was fed three times a day for the first two weeks and this was then reduced to twice daily. In 42 days he gained around 10kg and was looking like a completely different dog. Snow was getting his second chance.

Snow was rehomed earlier this month, just in time for Christmas, with a loving family that had recently taken in another dog from the pound.

We wish them all a very Merry Christmas and send out a big thanks to our team at the pound for the effort they made with Snow and all the other dogs that are able to be successfully rehomed.

*Below are some progress pictures of Snow from when he was first dropped at the pound, to the day before he left, and of him in his new home.
