Fanny Brice came into SNAFU Rescue after being surrendered by her family who realized they did not have the time to devote to the adjustment of a former commercial breeder and wanted to ensure she found the best home possible as her forever home!
Fanny Brice Funny Girl is a little dolly who just wants to be with her people. She doesn’t care much about other dogs, even when the ones in her foster home bark she doesn’t pay attention. She also doesn’t seem to mind the 2 dog savvy cats in her foster home. She is a cuddle bug and if you quit petting her she will nudge you for more. She really is a sweet, quiet and calm girl. Otherwise she would love if you were retired or able to take her to work. She is very easy going and is just looking for lots of attention and love. She loves to be the center of attention and if you are petting someone else she will gently place herself between you and whoever you are petting. She also loves to sleep in her fosters bed, on a pillow in the middle. Another thing she seems to enjoy is the doggy door in her home where she hilariously bolts in and out of as if it will not open otherwise.
Her foster mom thinks she would be an amazing therapy dog that could visit nursing homes, schools etc. She loves all people and is so amazing at providing gentle comfort. Everyone that meets her seems to fall in love! Even if they are not into dogs she finds a way to make them love her, she is pretty special girl.
She just acts so mature and classy! She is not very playful other than her funny bathroom running lap she does everyday in her fosters backyard. While she can walk on a leash, she uses her Frenchie charm to insist she needs to be carried instead.
She has been on a great potty routine in her foster home and rarely has an accident. If she does it’s because her foster family missed her signal which is subtle. While she has been doing wonderfully with going potty outside, a regular and consistent schedule will help with her continued potty training success in her new home. She doesn’t so much love to be kenneled when they are not home. For her safety though kenneling is important, she has been known to eat random things like soap and flowers. Also because she loves people so much her foster believes it’s important to kennel so she can avoid separation anxiety. 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.
Medically, Fanny seems to be in great health! She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/deworming’s, has had a dental and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Fanny would do well in almost any type of home. A house with a fenced yard is preferred for her, but is not a requirement for adoption. 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 she has a couple of bones to keep her busy and her people can arrange a mid-day potty break for her!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Fanny, please submit an adoption application for her today!!
NOTE: Please note that it may 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, for any reason, and 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.
Fanny's applications are currently under review.
We are no longer accepting new applications for her at this time.
