  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Snoopy, an elderly deaf dog, has been living in a shelter for the past 653 days. Despite his age and deafness, Snoopy remains a lovable and gentle companion. Julie, a graphic designer from Washington State, has been volunteering at the Kennewick Shelter, also known as the Ben Franklin Humane Society, for the past two years. It was there that she met Snoopy and instantly formed a connection with him. Snoopy was brought to the shelter due to his medical condition. About a year ago, he was diagnosed with Cushing's disease, which has affected his vision and hearing, causing him to be almost completely deaf. In order to cope with his anxiety, Snoopy finds solace in sucking on blankets and stuffed animals in his kennel. Julie believes that this habit brings him comfort. Over the past month, Julie has spent a significant amount of time with Snoopy, growing more attached to him each day.Despite his age and medical condition, Snoopy is great with people. However, he does not get along well with other dogs. He finds joy in the simplest things, such as being let out of his kennel and spending time outdoors. Snoopy is not a high-maintenance dog; he doesn't require long hikes or rigorous exercise. Instead, he prefers lounging in the backyard and basking in the sunlight. Many kind-hearted individuals have made generous donations to support Snoopy. One person noticed that he only had a blanket in his kennel and took the initiative to provide him with a comfortable orthopedic bed. Snoopy has also formed a strong bond with one of the shelter workers, Sydney, who considers him her favorite dog.Despite his medical condition, the veterinarian has given Snoopy a positive prognosis with the medications he is currently taking. It is hoped that Snoopy will have a few more golden years ahead of him, filled with love and happiness.
  • Subtitles section
  • He is a senior dog, almost deaf, and he's been a shelter dog for 653 days.
  • I'm Julie, and this is Snoopy's story for GeoBeats.
  • I'm a graphic designer based out of the Tri-Cities, which is in Washington State.
  • I started volunteering for the Kennewick Shelter, which is the Ben Franklin Humane Society, where Snoopy is, for the last two years.
  • He was rendered to the shelter.
  • About a year ago, he was diagnosed with Cushing's disease.
  • This gives him problems with his vision and his hearing, so he's almost completely deaf.
  • Whenever Snoopy has a blanket or a stuffed animal inside of his kennel, he sucks on the blankets and the toys.
  • I think it makes him feel better.
  • I started getting to know him in the last month, so that's when I started getting super attached to him.
  • He is great with people, but he does not like other dogs.
  • He enjoys just simple joys.
  • When you let him out of his kennel, he's just like, this is the best day ever, and I love that you took me outside.
  • He's not a high-demand dog.
  • He's not one of those dogs that you've got to take out for a three-mile hike.
  • He just wants you to sit out in the backyard with him and lay out in the sun.
  • Oh, thank you for another kiss.
  • He has gotten so many amazing donations, gotten tons of toys.
  • A very nice person noticed that he only had a blanket in there.
  • They called the shelter, and they got him this really nice orthopedic bed.

  • Her name is Sydney.
  • Snoopy is her absolute favorite dog.
  • The veterinarian says that he has a really good prognosis with those meds that he's taking, so hopefully he's got another few golden years left in him.
  • I think with the cost of the meds, people know that this is an expensive disease to treat because there's regular vet visits, and he's got several different types of meds that he's on.
  • It's expensive.
  • When it's a senior dog and when they have special needs like Snoopy, it's kind of scary for people.
  • They don't want to adopt a dog and then only have him for a few months.
  • I'm going to be so incredibly excited when he finally gets to go home, and I wish I didn't have two dogs of my own so that I could take him home.
  • He was in foster care for a little bit, so he did get some shelter relief, but unfortunately didn't work out with them.
  • So for almost that whole time, he's been at the shelter.
  • For 653 days, he has only had one meet and greet that I'm aware of.
  • He had one that was scheduled for last week, but they didn't show up.
