Everyone, meet Snowy: the adorable pup whose story has been finally pieced together – the power of social media, ladies and gents! Snowy’s story is quite the sad one but thankfully, things are slowly looking up for him.

“He lived with a homeless man in Sliema. Wherever one went, the other went with him. Unfortunately the man passed away and Snowy lost as well his human father,” Association for Abandoned Animals shares on socials.“Animal Welfare rescued him and brought him to AA sanctuary. We named him Snowy, we groomed him a bit, neutered and vaccinated him.”

But the story doesn’t end there. “A couple of days ago, people started to ask what happened to this poor dog on another Facebook page. And there is when we learned the sad story of Snowy, whose real name coincidentally happened to be as well, Snowy.”

“No more streets dear boy. Snowy has started to get so much better character-wise and in a couple of weeks, when we are sure all is ok, he will be leaving to his [new] family. Right now he is safe in AAA sanctuary getting love from us, a warm bed and some good food.”
