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.
We are no longer accepting applications for Cleo, her applications are under review.
Foster Location: Omaha, NE
Age: 7 months
Weight: 20 lbs
Adoption fee: $700
Fenced Yard: Preferred
Cleo was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via breeder release. Her breeder wanted her to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out her life as a cherished pet!
Cleo is a very happy, energetic, outgoing puppy who balances play time with naps and snuggles. Cleo seems to get along well with every human she meets, and has done great with the other dogs she meets! She is still learning dog manners and can sometimes be a little overzealous with her attempts at play. She is slowly learning though and would do best in a home with easy going dogs. She has not lived with cats, but seemed disinterested in them at rescue events.
Cleo is currently still working on potty training. While she has been doing wonderfully with going potty outside, a regular and consistent schedule will help with her continued potty training in her new home. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with her. She has also done great with crate training and sleeps quietly in her kennel during the 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 she is left unsupervised so she is safe and secure while no one is home. She does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of her inside the home.
Medically, Cleo seems to be in great health! Cleo was born with a Grade 4 Luxating Patella. She has since had surgery and has a clean bill of health. She shouldn’t have any more problems in the future if she maintains a healthy weight. In addition to her knee surgery she has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Cleo would do well in almost any type of home. Since she is still working on potty training a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for her (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard). We also think she'd love to go work with her new family if they wanted to take her with them to the office! She loves to meet new people! If her people are not able to take her to work with them, no problem - she's completely happy sleeping the day away in her kennel as long as her people can arrange a mid day potty break for her!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Cleo, please submit an adoption application for her today!!
