So named for the snorting noise she makes when sniffing about, Snuffles is a tamed mole rat living in Sloan and is, as stated by Chomps Lewis, keeping the morale up even though the quarry workers can't work because of all the deathclaws. Snuffles originally helped the miners by digging tunnels and assisting in the mining at the quarry, but when the powder gangers drove the miners off and the deathclaws moved in, the miners (and Snuffles) were forced to abandon the quarry. Her leg was badly injured by a baby deathclaw during the escape and none of the miners are skilled enough to heal her leg, though the Courier may be able to. The injury also resulted in Snuffles walking with a unique Mole Rat limp.
Claws Mended: Snuffles is a mole rat that seems to have a damaged leg; you can heal this leg if you have 30 points in Medicine or you can heal her with a doctor's bag. This will gain you some NCR fame if you tell Chomps Lewis of your good deed. You can also stop by once in a while to ask her how things are going.
