Snoop Dogg Is Lobbying To Adopt An Abandoned Dog Who Shares His Name—And There Just Aren’t Enough ‘Awwws’

On December 17th, a man abandoned his adorable Staffordshire bull terrier on the side of the road in Stoke-on-Trent, England. CCTV captured the heart-wrenching footage, where the pup realizes he has been dumped and chases the car as it drives off.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) shared the video on social media, and it instantly went viral.

Thousands of people around the world poured out their empathy and compassion for the dog, whom the RSPCA has affectionately named Snoop.

Of course, people were furious after seeing this heartbreaking footage.

Before the car drives off, Snoop runs over to his owner as he gets in the car and slams the door shut. Then, the persistent pup places his paws on the passenger side and peers into the window, confused, before the owner eventually drives off.

And everyone was sobbing.

Luckily, Snoop wasn’t hurt or physically affected by the disgusting dangerous situation.

But still, one can assume the dog is mentally shaken up and traumatized.

Some even offered to welcome the dog with open arms, giving him the forever home he deserves:

In fact, thousands of people called in to offer Snoop a loving home.

Right now, RSPCA Regional Manager Rachel Butler explained that the pup is staying at private kennels and isn’t up for adoption while the RSPCA investigates his previous owner who abandoned him:

“Snoop is currently staying at private kennels and I’m happy to say that he is doing really well and is getting a lot of fuss and attention from staff there.”

Butler added that everyone is falling for him, because I mean…how could you not??

“He is a lovely friendly dog and a lot of people have fallen in love with him!”

The organization assured that he won’t have to worry about being back on the streets.

“We have had scores of people wanting to rehome him so we are certain he will not be waiting long for a new home.”

One of those people is Snoop Dogg. 


The Gin and Juice rapper and animal lover offered to adopt his namesake after seeing the footage of him being abandoned:

“It is heartbreaking. There is always room for another dog in Casa de Snoop. If he really needed a home then he has one with us.”

How sweet!


The OG Snoop added that little Snoop will have no problems finding somewhere to call home.

“But I don’t think there is going to be any shortage of loving homes after all the exposure he has got.”

Still! The thought of Snoop and Snoop chilling at home, in his mansion, and living their absolute best lives together is bound to make you smile. Going from England to Los Angeles might be a bit of a change…but we doubt the doggo would mind some sunshine!

Snoop Dogg is an investor in Dog for Dog brand dog food, which donates a bag of food to a rescue shelter for every bag sold. He’s had as many as 11 dogs at a time over the years.

Based on all the love online for little Snoop, he likely will be adopted quickly.

But there are plenty of other dogs that the RSPCA and shelters across the globe need to find forever homes. Hopefully some of the people who want to help Snoop will consider rescuing another dog.
