June came into 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!
June is a sweet, loving, playful and kind little girl. She engages play with anyone and everyone that will give her lots of attention. June enjoys to chew on anything she can get her cute little paws on. Toys are available at all times as she can entertain herself with just about anything that can squeak! Keep an eye on this cutie pie as she has an affinity to control the remote, then leave it on her favorite channel along with her teeth marks! June is quick and will find the door lightening fast when it is time to go outside. Once outside, June will be sure to take a jaunt around the yard and scope her surroundings. After a rendezvous around the yard June is back for some much desired attention. She truly is the happiest and calmest when she is getting get her desired scratches. June is happy and playful towards other dogs and cats. She does need ample time to warm up to other animals. June is experiencing a big transition and as such will require a patient family to allow her time to adapt to her new surroundings. June does amazing with children! As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to other dogs and children in the household is a must and she should always be supervised when around children to make sure both she and they are kept safe.
June is still working on potty training and her foster family happily reports she has not had an accident for over 2 weeks! While she doesn't have accidents in her kennel, carpet seems to call her name even after a trip outside. A regular, consistent schedule will help with her continue potty training in her new home. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be patient and willing to continue working on potty training. June is crate trained and currently sleeps in her crate during the night and during the daytime when her foster family is at work. For her safety, we recommend that she keeps a similar crate schedule when her humans are away and/or she is left unsupervised so she is safe and secure. She does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of her inside the home.
Medically, June is in great health! She has been spayed, microchipped, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested and has been given a clean bill of health by our vetrinarian.
June would do well in almost any type of home. She does well on leash but once left alone she will wiggle her way out of her collar. A fenced yard will be preferred for her (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard), but it is not a requirement for adoption. Ultimately, she is sweet and lovable and will do great in any home that can play with her and give her the attention and love she needs and deserves.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for June, please submit an adoption application for her today!!
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.
