Dog placed in shelter by family she saved from fire

Last year, Snickers the dog saved her family from a burning RV.

GLEN ROSE, TX (WCMH)— Last August, Snickers the dog saved her family by waking them up when the RV they were sleeping in caught fire. Now she needs someone to save her.

According to CBS DFW, Snickers, a 1-year-old shar pei mix was credited with saving her family that night, but that same family recently moved and couldn’t take her with them. She was placed in the Glen Rose Animal Shelter in Texas.

According to shelter workers, there has been little to no interest in adopting her in the last month, and if she isn’t found a home soon they will have to euthanize her.

“She’s a brave girl that saved her family and I don’t understand how nobody would want a dog like that,” Animal Control Officer Loretta Adams told CBS DFW. “She could potentially save your life”

Adams is hoping they won’t have to euthanize Snickers, but they may have no choice.

“We’ll be forced to do what we have to do,” she said.

If you are interested in adopting Snickers, call the Glen Rose Animal Shelter at (254) 897-3113
