Lizzy came into SNAFU Rescue after being sold on Craig’s list. She was a breeder and we want her placed in a loving home to live the rest of her life as a cherished pet.
Lizzy is a playful, social, lighthearted, outgoing Pug who loves being to snuggle her people and play with her furry friends. You can often find Lizzy running all around the house, grabbing any and every toy in site and then finally settling down for a quick pug snooze. When Lizzy isn’t being her jolly flirtatious self, you can find her grabbing a few of her favorite chew (nylabones and antlers are her favorite) and lying down for some quiet time with her beloved bones. After a much desired chew session, Lizzy will find a soft comfy bed to lay on or even better, snuggling one of her furry friends. She is curious and will grab all toys (children or her own) not knowing what is acceptable to play with so she must be supervised at all times when wandering the home as she doesn’t know danger and is still learning what is an acceptable item to chew on. Lizzy currently lives with a furry foster siblings. She has made fast friends with them and is learning quickly from shadowing them and mocking their behavior as to what it’s like to truly be a pet! Lizzy is experiencing a big transition and will need firm leadership, consistent correction to help her learn proper dog behavior, learn proper dog manners and to know what is expected in her adoptive home. She is smart, a fast learner and treat (cookie) motivated so we know Lizzy will be quick to adapt to pet life with the proper leadership! Lizzy seems to get along well with every human (big or small) as she is quite spirited and spunky around her people. Her foster family believes she would be best in a home with dog-savvy, gentle, children of any age and a home with other furry members. 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.
Lizzy is doing extremely well 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. Lizzy is 100% crate trained, has not had any accidents, sleeps quietly when her foster family happens to leave the home and at bedtime. We think, since Lizzy loves to cuddle and snuggle, that she would love to share a bed with her adoptive family. For her safety, we recommend a similar crating/sleeping schedule is kept for her as she doesn’t know danger.
Medically, Lizzy seems to be in great health! She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, microchipped, heartworm tested and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Lizzy would do best in a home with a fenced-in yard due to her curious nature and her ability to easily escape a standard collar. She has mastered the stairs so a multiple floor apartment style dwelling home would be okay for her as long as she is properly secured at all times with a leash and harness. We also think Lizzy would love an active family with children to play with as she is ridiculously social and happy to be anywhere and everywhere her people are. She loves all people that will offer her attention. We think she would love to go to the office with her new family! You can’t take her to the office- that’s okay! She will happily sleep the day away in her crate as long as she has a furry buddy to keep her company, a soft comfy blanket and as long as her people can arrange a mid-day potty break for her.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Lizzy, 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.
