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.

Bingo came into SNAFU Rescue via a breeder release. Her breeder wanted her placed in a loving home to live the rest of her life as an adored and cherished pet.
Bingo is a sweet, shy, laidback and chill Frenchie girl that is able to warm up to new people that enter her home. She is quite the couch potato! She seeks attention from her small and big humans and prefers to be relaxing near them at all times. Nap time is her favorite time! There is not a couch or soft surface that Bingo won’t gravitate to during her many daily naps or even when tuning into her favorite TV show. When she isn’t lounging the day away, she will nestle up on a comfy surface and grab her favorite bone to settle in for a chew session. When Bingo first arrived at the rescue, she was very shy and timid. She is learning to trust and is starting to become more comfortable around new situations and new people. Bingo is slowly learning to live her life as a cherished pet. Although Bingo is gaining confidence and becoming more confident everyday, it is important to remember that she is dealing with a big transition and as such will need a patient and understanding family. She currently is living with a furry foster sibling. Bingo takes great pleasure in showing off her kangaroo skills by hopping around her furry friend and throughout the home. She very famously gets along with her foster sibling. When she isn’t napping the day away, Bingo’s inquisitive nature will kick in and since she doesn’t know all the dangers of her space she must be watched closely. She is still learning how to appropriately “dog” and because of her calm and quiet disposition we feel she would thrive and be very happy in a home with other dogs or equally as happy as an only pet. As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to other dogs in the household is a must. Bingo has been around children (big and small), she has not shown any aggression towards humans and we feel she would do just wonderful around dog savvy and respectful children of any age. She should always supervised when she is around children to make sure both she and they are kept safe.
Bingo’s foster family happily reports she is nearly potty trained! She made fast progress and picked it up quickly with the help of her furry foster friend and a strict outside schedule. Her adoptive family will need to be patient and willing and able to keep her on a regular and consistent schedule for her continued potty training success. Bingo is fully crate trained. She is crated at night and when her foster family happens to be away from the home. For her safety, she will need to follow a similar crate arrangement when her humans are away from the home. Bingo does not know danger and is still learning how to be a pet.
Medically, Bingo seems to be in great health. She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested, soft palate shortened, nares widened, microchipped and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian! Upon arriving in rescue, Bingo did have emergency surgery. She had a condition call Pyrometra; the infection was removed and it will never return!
Bingo would do best in a house with a fenced yard since she is still learning to walk on a leash and can be nervous around new people. We also feel she would be a good pet for a multiple floor apartment style home because of her overall quiet nature, her ability to do well with stairs however a ground level unit with a fenced in area would be preferred. Work from home or a stay at home parent? Bingo would love that!!! Otherwise, we think she'd love to go work with her new family if they wanted to take her with them to the office as she prefers the comfort of her people! If her people are not able to take her to work with them, no problem at all - she'd be happy sleeping the day away as long as she has a warm soft blanket and her people can arrange for a mid-day potty break or two for her! Ultimately Bingo is looking for a family to help show her what pet life is all about and one that will be patient as she learns to trust.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Bingo, please submit an adoption application for her today!!
