Good News For Pup Who Lost His Nose In A Vicious Attack
Poodle And Pooch

Life has been rough for Sniffles the dog.

He's an older pup who was originally a stray dog on the streets of Puerto Rico.

He got into a fight with a pack of other dogs and as a result of his injuries he lost his nose. Initially, people thought (and reported) that he was born without one, but closer examination showed it was torn off in a fight.

It took three surgeries to get him to where he is now.

A rescue stepped in and brought him to Florida, where he was adopted. That adoption wasn't a good fit, though, as Sniffles kept breaking out to wander the streets—it was all he had ever known.

However, with the help of Poodle and Pooch Rescue, it looks like he may finally find his happy ending. Poodle And Pooch specializes in rescuing dogs that are considered "less adoptable" because they are old, require medical attention, have special needs, etc.

Around Christmas time, Sniffles and his story really started to take off.

For totally not-at-all obvious reasons... (yup, sarcasm!)

His sudden popularity has lead to literally hundreds of calls and tons of mail from people who are interested in adopting him. Poodle And Pooch doesn't think he's quite ready to go just yet, though.

Living your whole life on the streets is rough. Sniffles has hookworms, whip worms and a tick-borne disease.

Sniffles' new family will also need to commit to flushing out his nasal passages a few times a day and putting drops in his eyes regularly since he doesn't produce enough tears naturally.

Even with all of that stacked against him, he's got "several great options" for potential adopters according to Poodle And Pooch.

How could he not? Look at how much Twitter loves him!

Poodle and Pooch has been so overwhelmed by people's response to Sniffles, that they want to remind everyone that there are tons of other great dogs out there who are also looking for their "fur-ever" homes.

When Sniffles is ready, the internet sensation will have more options than he could shake a stick at.

Poodle And Pooch is hoping that his popularity will also help other animals in need, not just in their rescue, but around the world.

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
