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.

Jade came into SNAFU Rescue via a commercial breeder release. Her breeder wanted her placed in a loving home to live the rest of her life as a cherished pet.
When Jade first arrived in rescue she was shy and very timid. In such a short time her kind, sweet personality started to shine right through. Jade is a smart, playful, laidback, quiet, curious, shy Frenchie girl who loves being around her people and her furry foster siblings. You can often find Jade running all around the fenced-in yard and exploring all the new smells of the outdoors. When Jade isn’t requesting time outside, you can find her shadowing her foster family around the house, grabbing a few of her favorite chew toys and laying down for a fun play session. She will often sneak around her foster home gathering all the toys she fancies and hoard them in her personal space. When it comes to chew time Water Buffalo Horns are her absolute favorite; she can nibble on them for hours! After a fun play and chew session, Jade will find a soft comfy bed to lay on or remind her foster family that she is in need of some extra pets and booty scratches. This girl really loves attention and affection. When Jade isn’t following her humans all around the house you can find her exploring every inch of her foster home. She is quite smart, curious and wanting to know where everything is so Jade must be supervised when wandering the home as she doesn’t know danger. She currently lives with several furry foster siblings. Jade gets along great with each of her smaller furry friends and is thriving learning what it is like to be a pet! Jade can be nervous around sudden movements and abrupt noises. She is experiencing a big transition and will need leadership to help her learn proper dog behavior, learn proper dog manners and to know what is expected in her adoptive home. She is extremely smart, a fast learner and wants to please her humans. Jade seems to get along well with every human (big or small) she meets but is skittish at first. Her foster family believes she would be best in a home with dog-savvy, gentle, children 10 years of age or older and would thrive in a home with a balanced furry friend of her size. As with all of our dogs, we recommend slow introductions between dogs and supervision around children when introducing a new dog in your home to make sure both she and they are kept safe.
Jade is doing well with potty training. She quickly picked up going outside as she mimicked the other dogs in the 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, offering her a consistent schedule and work with her on a signal for potty. Jade is 100% crate trained but prefers a 4x6 pen that is donned with all of her favorite things! Jade does not have any accidents in her pen but she does get excited in the morning to see her foster mom and can tinkle a bit due to her excitement! She sleeps quietly in her pen when his foster family happens to leave the home and as well at night. For her safety, we recommend a similar crating/sleeping schedule is kept for her as she doesn’t know danger.
Medically, Jade seems to be in great health! She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested, microchipped, had a dental, her nares widened and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Jade would do best in a home with a fenced-in yard due to her explorative nature, her love for the outdoors (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard) as she is still trying to master her leash and stair skills. She begs for exercise and would love a large yard to run and play! Because Jade is still adjusting to pet life and a bit timid, we think Jade would prefer a low key family that likes to spend time at home catching up on their favorite TV shows and spends time outside in the warmer months. We think in time she would love to go to the office with her new family since she loves people but due to her initial shy nature a quieter workplace would be best. You can’t take her to the office- that’s okay! She will happily sleep the day away in her safe area as long as she has a furry buddy to keep her company, has a soft comfy blanket and as long as her people can arrange a mid-day potty break for her. Ultimately Jade is looking for a family to help her adjust to pet life. She is an amazingly sweet girl who needs some time to come out of her shell (a balanced playmate will help). She is really starting to enjoy the great things pet life has to offer and looking for help to turn her sweetness into greatness!
