Lenny, Cooper, Ruth and Lexington were born in rescue but their mom came into the SNAFU Rescue via a private party release. The owner of their mom wanted the puppies to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out their lives as a cherished pets.

Lenny, Cooper, Ruth and Lexington are all typical energetic, wild, happy-go-lucky, active, friendly, playful puppies who love activity!  They are all exuberant, high-spirited and truly quite loveable.  They absolutely adore to play with the other Frenchie resident siblings in their foster home; they’re fearless when it comes to fun with their furry friends!  After a good romp around the house and a gentle game of wrestling with their furry foster siblings, you can find these sweet babies finding all sorts of things to chew on.  They have yet to find anything that would not make a good chew toy (they must have eyes on them at all times as they do not know what is an acceptable chew toy)!  The puppy clan are still developing their individual personalities.  Only two of them are really standing out. Ruth is the most curious, fearless and clever.  She finds new ways to scale heights and jump onto things.  The couch seems to be Ruth’s next conquest!  Lexington is the smallest of the group and is more quiet than the rest of the group.  Lex is more timid and would rather be held by his human rather than storming the castle with his brothers and sister.  He will play all by himself chasing imaginary butterflies.  They are typical cute clumsy Boston Terrier puppies… it is all play, play and more play!   These cuties worship all known humans, pretty much anyone person or pup they can convince to provide them with enjoyment and attention.  They are still developing and all seem to have a very good disposition.  They have been introduced to children and we feel with proper structure they would do great with children of all ages who are gentle, calm and dog savvy.  They are all still young and will need ongoing guidance to learn proper manners.  They will need patient and understanding families to help introduce them in new situations, learn boundaries, adjust to new people, new noises, learn proper dog commands and what is expected of them in their adoptive homes.  In addition, we feel they would thrive in homes with another balanced furry friend(s) to help them learn the ropes.  As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to other dogs and children in the household is a must and they should always be supervised to make sure both they and them are kept safe.

Lenny, Cooper, Ruth and Lexington are still puppies; potty training is a work in progress and will be for sometime.  A regular and consistent schedule will help with potty training in their new homes.  As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training.  The puppies will have accidents in the home and any adopter must know that training can take time. They will need a safe place to call their own and proper crate training is recommended.  They all sleep in an x-pen with their siblings with many accidents when their foster family happens to be away from the home. A similar arrangement is suggested to keep them safe and secure as they do not know danger.  

Medically, they are all in great health!   Lenny, Cooper, Ruth and Lex will be spayed/neutered on December 28th, they are updated on vaccinations/deworming, heartworm tested, microchipped and have been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!

We feel the puppies would do well in almost any type of home but since they are still working on potty training and learning how to master the stairs, a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for them.  Boston Terriers are typically quick and can jump high so fencing is important to keep them safe and secure as they learn their new environments.  If the adoptive family is willing to work on immediate leash training, a shared walled apartment (an attached yard is a bonus) would also be okay for them.  They are all still developing and need proper guidance.  The breed is typically high energy and the more people to offer them structure, training, love and lots of attention the better. These puppies are fearless and will need constant attention, monitoring and lots of potty breaks. Puppy socialization is critical during this time and effort has been given to exposing them to many different people, other dogs and sounds (fireworks, vacuum, doorbell).  Continued socialization will be important to ensure happy, confident and well-adjusted dogs.

Lenny, Cooper, Ruth and Lexington are very active, typical energetic puppies with boundless energy, so please be ready for the needs and care requirements of a young dog.  If you are looking for an addition to your family that needs and wants your families attention, love and cuddles, then these babies just might be for you and your family! 

If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Lenny, Cooper, Ruth and Lexington, please submit an adoption application for them 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.
