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.

Gold 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!
Gold is a curious, playful, and energetic four year old Frenchie. She is quite good with people of all ages. She does bark if someone new enters the room, but will calm down pretty quickly after giving them a good sniff. It helps if they scratch her ears too! Gold is a snuggling pro. She’s not allowed on the couch at her foster home, but that doesn’t stop her from asking for “the holdy”. She’s mastered puppy dog eyes and she usually gets her snuggle time in the end. She would love to lay on the couch and binge Netflix with you. Gold has not been fully tested around cats, but she did ignore a pair of kittens at Petsmart. Gold loves her toys as much as she loves her people. Give her a Nyla-bone or deer antler and she is in heaven! Stuffed animals that squeak? She’ll get ‘em every time. She hasn’t quite figured out tennis balls yet, but she does like squeaky toys.
Gold would enjoy having dog siblings, but the would need to be submissive or easy going as she can be a bit bossy. She is often found running around the house with the resident Frenchie. Both girls play and play and play until they are worn out. Gold would be ok as an only dog as long as she gets lots of exercise and stimulation.
Gold is working on potty training. She won’t make a mess in her kennel or if she’s gated off in the mudroom, but she’s still working on total freedom in the house. She’s really good at going potty outside off and on the leash. You should see her victory laps after she’s done with business. It’s quite the treat! She’s hasn’t yet figure out how to tell her people that it’s potty time, but that will come. 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.
Gold has been given a clean bill of health by our vet. She’s been spayed, had a dental, has been updated on vaccinations/dewormings and is up to date on heartworm prevention. She’s ready to become a part of your family and show you her silly, playful ways.
Gold would do well in almost any type of home but since she is still working on potty training, and does not know how to potty on a leash, 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 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 Gold, please submit an adoption application for her today!!
Gold's applications are currently under review.
We are no longer accepting new applications for her at this time.
