Batman was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue for nipping at a young child in his previous home. While he did not break skin, his previous family felt he would do best if placed in a home with no young children present.
Batman is a rambunctious, energetic, playful and silly Frenchie boy. He is extremely fond of playtime which includes emptying his entire toy box full of squeaky toys. You can find Batman with the loudest squeaky plush toy firmly attached to his mouth at all times and he will prance around the house so very proud of his beloved toy! Batman will zoom from room to room only stopping to try and shred the squeaker to pieces! Sounds exhausting? No way! Don’t let his bountiful spurts of energy fool you…this boy will absolutely be looking for somewhere to nap and grab a snuggle. Batman fancies the couch for a frenchie snooze. When he is finished with nap time but is still looking to chill, he will seek out his favorite nylabone for some chew time. He truly enjoys the outdoors and is persistent requesting his daily walks as exercise keeps Batman happy and smiling! Batman currently lives with a foster furry sibling and they get along famously! He would most certainly do well in a house with a fur buddy but would likely do equally as well as an only dog. Batman would graciously soak up all the attention and would love to savor all the belly rubs just for him! He currently lives with a dog savvy cat and also tries to engage the cat in play from time to time. If potential adopters have a cat, it needs to be dog savvy - if the cat runs he will chase. Batman’s sweet but fiery personality would fit best with gentle, dog savvy children over the age of 14 due to his bite history with younger children in his previous home. As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to other dogs and children in the household is a must and he should always be supervised to make sure he and they are kept safe.
Batman is 100% potty trained. His adoptive family will need to be willing and able to keep him on a regular and consistent schedule for his continued potty training success. Also, bring your patience! Batman takes his sweet time while outside (with a toy in tow) as he must investigate every inch of the grass! His foster family reports he is completely crate trained although he doesn’t willingly choose his crate. Batman does sleep at night in his crate and doesn’t spend much time during the day in there as his foster family is home most of the day. For his safety, a similar crating schedule when his humans are away from the home and/or when he is left unsupervised so he is safe and secure.
Medically, Batman is in great health! He has been neutered, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested, microchipped and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Batman would do best in a house with a fenced in yard due to his explorative nature. We also think he’d love a family willing to offer tons of playtime, belly rubs for hours, and one with teenagers so he could soak up tons of attention from multiple family members. We also think Batman would love to go to work with his new family if they wanted to take him with them to the office knowing that he would be interested in seeking attention from every co-worker and he would probably be prone to doing zoomies around the office a couple times a day! If his people are not able to take him to work with them, no problem at all - he's completely happy sleeping the day away as long as he has nylabone to chew on and his people can arrange for a mid-day potty break for him!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Batman, please submit an adoption application for him 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.
