Blue came into SNAFU Rescue after being purchased from a rehoming ad on craigslist in order to ensure he found the best home possible as his forever home!
Blue is a happy, playful, outgoing boy! He loves to play with the other dogs in his foster home, occasionally the cat as well! Blue is still a very much a young dog with lots of energy . He loves his humans and after a playing and running off his puppy energy he loves to share a snuggle. He loves everyone he meets!
Blue is 100% potty trained! He has had no accidents inside while with his foster family. As with all our dogs, a regular consistent schedule will help ensure his continued success with potty training in his new home. Blue also does great with crate training and sleeps quietly in his kennel during the night or when his foster family happens to leave the home. For his safety, we recommend that he keep a similar crating schedule when his humans are away from the home and/or he is left unsupervised so he is safe and secure while no one is home. He is still young and does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of him inside the home.
Medically, Blue is in good health! He is neutered and has been updated on all of his vaccinations, deworming and heartworm prevention and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Blue would do well in almost any type of home. He is used to going out with a fenced yard for potty breaks but is working on pottying on a leash. Because he is a young dog with puppy-level energy a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard). If a prospective home has kids, we think that'd be just fine for him. He does live with an older child currently in his foster home (and loves him!), he has met children of all ages and did wonderful with them during their meeting/playtimes. We also think he'd love to go work with his new family if they wanted to take him with them to the office. He loves to just hang out with his people and the other dogs in the home, explore and investigate what his people might be doing. He loves to bounce around the yard outside with the other dogs! If his people are not able to take him to work with them, no problem - he's completely happy sleeping the day away with a couple nylabones to keep him occupied in his kennel as long as his people can arrange a mid-day potty break for him!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Blue please fill out an adoption application for him today!
NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at LEAST a 2-3 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.
