2023 Christmas Wish Lists for SUPER SNOOTIES with Super Powers!!!
Thank you so much for being Santa to one of our many Super Snooties.
Super Snooty forever fosters are dogs in our program who have extensive medical or special needs, are hospice, or are extreme seniors (15 and over). We prefer to consider their “special needs”, superpowers instead, as they inspire us and save us on a daily basis. They live inside an SGDR foster home for the entirety of their lives and we cover all of their medical and supply needs for that lifetime.
These dogs on average, AFTER initial surgeries and treatments (which can range anywhere from $1500 to $8000), cost us approximately $1000 each to care for yearly, while providing the best vet care, excellent nutrition, medications/preventatives, and supplements. We generally have around 50 Super Snooties in our program at any given time. This is the part of our rescue that we are the most proud of and obviously, the part that requires the most money to fund.
There are so many amazing Super Snooties, we know you will find one whose story connects with you!

Click on the name of one, two or all “Super Snooty” to play Santa this year!!!
Percy is a 2.5 year old paralyzed Schnoodle. Franklin is a 9yr old paralyzed Beagle. Pomopposum is a 6yr old incontinent Pomeranian due to hemi-vertebrae. These three buddies live in the same foster home and are fantastic friends and playmates.
Kodak Dancing Dawn is a 13yr old MaltiPoo with proteinuria that has caused kidney disease. Kodak came into the program 6.5yrs ago semi feral after being found in a dumpster in East Nashville. Over the years he has learned to love and trust his foster family, friends, and vet staff. Hiram “Harry” Thomas is a a new Super Snooty, he is a 16yr old Poodle that was surrendered to Snooty Giggles when his owner had to enter a memory care facility. Harry has adjusted amazingly and is quite the charmer and loved by everyone that meets him.
Nimzy was born with a rare spinal cord deformity that has caused paralysis. Nimzy is almost six years old and has been in our forever foster program since she was a six week old puppy. Bobo came into the program weighing almost 30 pounds, but is now 1/3 of his former weight and is a forever foster due to Cushing’s Disease and hypothyroidism. Nimzy and Bobo have recently moved to Texas with their forever foster family.
Nadya came into our program years ago, after months of living as a feral dog in our community. Her forever foster was actually the person who saved her, working tirelessly for months to be able to catch her. It took Nadya such a long time to acclimate to being a “pet”. Because of this and her anxiety, we knew she would remain in our program as a forever foster.
Riley is another one of our paralyzed foster dogs. She was lucky to land in a forever foster home with a foster dad that she wrapped around her paw. They do not allow Riley’s paralysis to keep her from living large. She goes on hikes in her wagon (she hates her wheelchair) and travels a couple of times a year to Miami to vacation with extended family. Riley loves that swimming time!
Winnie came into the program in 2014 she was shut down and terrified of her surroundings. Her foster mom was amazingly patient and eventually adopted Winnie as her own. Years later her precious human passed much too soon from cancer and we brought Winnie back into the program. Once a Snooty always a Snooty. We were fortunate that her new foster mom, was immediately willing to be her forever foster so that Win never had to make any more changes. Winnie has now grown into quite the old lady with some typical large breed senior dog health issues. She keeps surprising us, though, with her determination.
Danza was found as a stray by his forever foster mom. When no one ever came forward as his owner, she offered to foster him. He had some typical senior medical needs, but nothing that a good dental and basic care could not correct. However, sometimes you become a forever foster not because of medical, but behavior. Danza was a very grumpy Chihuahua. So onto the foster roster he went!! That was years ago and we are happy to report he has mellowed in his old age, but still keeps the neighbor kids off of his lawn if needed!!!
Nevius is a 3 year old Frenchie with severe epilepsy. With the help of The University of Georgia’s Vet School epilepsy program, we have been able to provide him with some relief from his serious cluster seizures. His medication regimen is quite the science project for his forever foster family, but they are in this thing with him 120%. He is never left alone and sometimes that means doing to work with his foster mom…or to the beach!!! Not a bad life at all!! His neuro condition will absolutely shorten his lifespan, but they are making sure he lives his best day ever, every single day.
Laurent was born blind and deaf and found her way to us at the age of one. Adoption never seemed to be in the cards for her and here we are 6 years later and she is still shining bright in her forever foster home. She loves farm life, spending endless hours with her favorite friends and toys…and sunbathing. No one loves to lie in the sun like Laurent Racene!
Engel Costello is a 6.5 year old shihtzu mix who is a long term medical foster as we navigate some health issues. He was actually adopted from us several years ago and recently his adopter passed away and he needed to return to the program. He is a fine fine southern gentleman, as sweet as they come. He loves children and his toys and being a constant companion.
Loofah is an 8yr old Pug mix. Loofah came in off the streets and it was discovered she had mast cell cancer. She has been in our forever program now for 2.5 years and is just one of the many cancer dogs we have had who like to prove the scientists wrong by outliving their calculations!!! Maybe it’s love, maybe it’s because no one tells dogs there been a limit put on them….or maybe it’s just because she hasn’t taken enough car rides yet!! This girl loves to ride shotgun with her forever fosters.
