Slater Snow is a blind, 13+ year old rescued Boston Terrier adopted from Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee. He has been a loved, valued and priceless member of Amber’s household since 2011. His favorite pastimes include eating steamed carrots, going for long walks, raising awareness for special needs dogs, smelling the roses and catching as many Z’s as he can. You can usually find him holding down a couch or exploring the great outdoors with his fabulous sense of smell.
