After being abandoned and frightened, a friendly dog named Mr. Snufflufugus found himself roaming the outskirts of Copperas Cove, Texas, desperately searching for someone who could lend a helping hand.
When local animal control personnel eventually discovered Mr. Snufflufugus and brought him to Copperas Cove Animal Control, the appreciative American bulldog mix was overjoyed to be in a safe environment. He expressed his gratitude by warmly cuddling his newfound friend, Tamara Hall, the animal control supervisor. Victoria Watkins-Killebrew, another staff member, captured this heartwarming moment in a photograph.
“Victoria and I were in the play area with Mr. Snufflufugus when he decided he needed a hug,” Hall recounted to The Dodo. “Although he enjoys visits from everyone, I hold the esteemed position of being his favorite person. As his favorite, I am fortunate to receive his extra-special hugs and kisses!”
Following the viral spread of the photo capturing Mr. Snufflufugus embracing Hall, Copperas Cove Animal Control received an overwhelming number of adoption applications for the affectionate pup. However, due to the shelter’s limited resources, they are currently in the process of relocating Mr. Snufflufugus to a larger rescue organization that can better handle the high demand and assist in finding him the perfect match.
In the meantime, this cuddly canine is enjoying the company of his friends at Copperas Cove, where dedicated volunteers are teaching him how to be a well-behaved companion. With his generous and loving nature, Mr. Snufflufugus is eagerly anticipating the day he will meet his forever family, and there will be an abundance of warm hugs awaiting them when that moment arrives.
