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 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.

Clyde came into SNAFU Rescue through a private party at 7.5 weeks old.
Clyde is a playful, active and energetic puppy who seems to love everyone he meets. He is a typical happy-go-lucky, silly, puppy. Some of his favorite past-times are chewing on bones, playing with his toys and snuggling with his people! He loves to be a lap dog, but he’s just as happy to sleep in his dog bed next to the couch if he can’t find an available lap. He seems to do very well with kids of all ages, and he especially loves to play with the other dog in his foster home! They love to run, wrestle and play for 20-30 mins and then in true short nose fashion, it is nap time! Clyde is pretty much all puppy and when he’s not napping, he is looking for something to do or something new to explore! His foster family reports that while he can be ornery (as puppies typically are!), he does listen well to stern orders and always comes when called. He loves to follow his people around, in or outside the house. He just loves to be where his people are!
Clyde is currently still working on potty training. While he has been doing really well with going potty outside, a regular and consistent schedule will help with his continued potty training in his new home. Her foster family makes sure to take him out immediately after he wakes up from puppy naps and 30 minutes after eating, and every hour to hour and a half throughout the day to keep accidents to a minimum. As he grows older, this schedule will be able to be relaxed. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with him. He has also done 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 does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of him inside the home.
Medically, Clyde seems to be in great health! He has been neutered, heartworm tested, is microchipped and has been updated on vaccinations/dewormings, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Clyde would do well in almost any type of home but since he is still working on potty training, a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard). 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 meet new people! If his people are not able to take him to work with them, no problem - he's completely happy sleeping the day away in his kennel as long as he has a couple of bones to keep him busy and his people can arrange a couple potty breaks for him throughout the day!
Clyde is a very active, energetic puppy, so please be ready for the needs and care requirements of a puppy. If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Clyde, please submit an adoption application for him today!!
