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.

Honey came into SNAFU Rescue through no fault of her own. Her previous owners found out their child was allergic to dogs and needed to re-home her.
Honey is a very happy, energetic, outgoing Bulldog. Be ready for playtime, walks and outside backyard time with this girl because she is not your typical couch potato English Bulldog! Honey seems to get along well with every human she meets and has done great with all other dogs she has met! Honey is still a puppy and doesn't always know when other dogs (or humans for that matter) are finished playing, but responds well to correction when she appears to be annoying the older dogs in her foster home. She absolutely LOVES to wrestle and play with her foster doggie siblings and she loves playing with her foster humans too! She loves stuffed animals and chewing her NylaBones. Honey doesn't know her size and thinks she is a lap dog. She loves to be snuggled up with a human or dog friend when she's not running around playing.
Honey is completely potty trained! She has not had a single accident in her foster home. 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. 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, Honey seems to be in great health! She had a cherry eye removed when she first came to us and hasn't had an issues with her eyes since. She also has an inverted vulva and will require diligent daily cleanings of her lady area with baby wipes and/or medicated wipes to ensure she stays clean and dry in that area in order to avoid UTIs and infections. She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, had a dental and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Honey would do well in almost any type of home, but a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for her (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard). She does very well with stairs and they do not phase her one bit! She loves to go to work with her foster dad, so 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 car rides and meeting 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! Again, she is an energetic, active, very playful girl, and loves to play, run around the yard, explore and investigate what her people might be doing. She loves to bounce around the yard outside so, again, be ready for an active, outgoing, playful Bulldog if you apply for her!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Honey, please submit an adoption application for her today!!
