Ada was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue by a private party to find the perfect family that can shower her all the love and attention she deserves.
Ada is a total sweetheart and loves nothing more than to be around her people all the time. Yes, she is your velcro Boston Terrier! Ada is a complete snuggle bug and can often be found right next to her foster family demanding their attention! When she isn’t loving on her people, she can be found lounging on her favorite spot in the world, the couch. Don’t let her love for the couch fool you, Ada is NOT a couch potato. She is a very playful, energetic girl who loves nothing more than chewing the day away on a nylabone. Ada is adorably curious and is entertained by exploring her surroundings. She can be a bit nosey and has let to learn the meaning of personal space. She enjoys meeting new people and shows it by showering them with kisses and cuddles. During her time with her foster family, Ada has not spent much time with children, however she has been nothing but gentle and sweet to those children who visited her during rescue meet and greet events as well as her foster family’s neighborhood children. As with all our dogs, we recommend slow introductions between dogs AND supervision around children when introducing a new dog into your home to make sure she and they are kept safe. Since she is a bit guarded due to her vision issues we do recommend following slow introduction protocol in order to ensure a smooth transition to her forever home.
Ada’s foster family is super excited to report she is 100% potty trained and report zero accidents since she arrived. She is currently a bit overweight but is on a diet plan that is paired with plenty of exercise to help her lose those few extra pounds. Her new family must be willing to commit a similar diet and exercise plan for her to shed some weight! Medically, Ada has cataracts (untreated juvenile cataracts) in both eyes but is able to determine lights and shadows. She manages her day to day with her strong sense of smell and hearing (a real-life superdog!). Ada has walked into things in her foster home but her cautious nature paired with her great memory allows her to adapt well to new surroundings. She is up-to-date on her vaccinations, heartworm tested, microchipped and has clean bill of health from our veterinarian.
Ada would do well in almost any type of home but would prefer a family that will shower her with lots attention and cuddles. A house with a fenced yard will be preferred for Ada given her cataracts but is not a requirement for adoption. As long as her adoptive family would keep her on a leash for potty breaks, she would also make the perfect apartment dog. Ada does enjoy a good nap and is ok being home alone while her new family is at work or away. If gone for an extended period of time (more than 6-8hrs), her family would need to arrange a mid-day potty break.
If you feel your family might be the perfect forever home for Ada, please submit an application for her today!!
NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at *least* a 3-4 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application. We typically accept for new applications for a period of 7 days or until 20 applications have been received for any newly available dog. After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc. :-) Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another. We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete. That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not. :-)
IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter. In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue. :-)
ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply! While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed.
If an adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.
We are no Longer Accepting Applications for Ada. Please check out our other dogs available for adoption!
