Never saw the thread but I have the Knipex 8" bolt cutters, they are handy.  They have the leverage of a blot cutter but are more of a beefed up wire cutter.  Don't let the term "bolt cutter" through you off.
This is what I carry as well.

When these guys are hunting with their dogs, if a dog gets in a snare, it stops and waits to be let off the leash. Itís easy. I would call your situation a free roaming dog issue. Iíve never seen a dog twist a snare cable at all.
Also Iíve caught a couple lost hounds, and one lost chukar dog, and returned them to their owners.
I was called by a musher. Heíd had a dog get off the chain and he couldnít catch it. It was eating a dead deer along the rr tracks and he was afraid it was going to get hit by the train. I set foothold traps and had it in a couple days. No problems.
As I said, just open up the loop and let your dog out. Or open the trap and let your dog out. No sense in spending more time and energy destroying anotherís gear.

Sorry, but my bird dog is more valuable than your snare, if she gets caught, the snare gets cut. Snares kill bird dogs every season, hence the subject being brought up. I carry bicycle cable cutters made by Park Tools.

Thanks everyone. Been out for a few days. I picked up a pair of the standard cutters that Mustilidae posted @ Scheels. Picked up a set of linemenís side cutters too. I appreciate the help.
