Adora came into SNAFU Rescue after being purchased at a commercial breeder dog auction. Thanks to the help of generous donors we were able to secure 14 dogs, now nicknamed the #Fab14.
Adora has been a sweet, but timid foster girl. Initially Adora was a VERY timid when first coming into her foster home but has since been making improvements slowly. She is still more comfortable in her crate than out of it, but will venture out when the house is quiet and explore a bit. She currently sleeps in the bed with her foster families 10 year old son and has gotten more accustomed to being around people, but still is a bit scared at first. She is still learning what it means to live the life of a pet! She loves to play with the other dogs in her foster home and will play as long as you let her, so a house with other small dogs would be great! She also gets along with her families larger dog, but they don’t interact in play. She is a pretty quiet girl, but she is starting to find her voice if she wants out of the crate to go outside or is lonely. Adora has been great with kids of all ages, but a quiet house will definitely be preferred due to her more timid nature.
Adora is currently still working on potty training but is getting better every day. She is still supervised when out of her crate inside the home, but has no accidents at night when sleeping with her human foster brother. A regular, consistent schedule will help with her continued potty training in her new home. Adora will sleep quietly in her kennel if her family prefers at night or when her foster family happens to leave the home. For her safety, we recommend that she keep a similar crating schedule when her humans are away from the home and/or he is left unsupervised so she is safe and secure while no one is home. She does not know danger and must be protected when hers humans are not able to supervise her. Medically, Adora is in good health! Adora has no known health issues. She has been neutered and is UTD on all of hers vaccinations/wormings.
Adora would do well in a quiet home, with a family that has the patience and time to work with a sweet girl who is still pretty scared of the world. Someone who can help build on her trust of people, while working with her potty training and leash training skills. She is also still learning to go up and down more than a few stairs at a time, and walking on a leash so a home with a fenced yard would be preferred. We also think she would love to go work with her new family once she gets over her trust issues if they wanted to take her with them to the office. If not, she's completely happy sleeping the day away in her kennel with something to chew on when she gets bored.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Adora please fill out an adoption 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 give a week for a "grace period" for new applications to come in on any newly available dog in order to give everyone a fair chance to submit an application. 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.
