Lolly came into SNAFU Rescue via a private party release. To no fault of her own, her owner wanted her placed in a loving home that can properly care for a young dog and the energy that comes along with a puppy.
Lolly is a smart, playful, loving energetic Boston Terrier puppy. She is overly enthusiastic when meeting new people and thinks everyone is her best friend! You can often find Lolly searching her foster home for her beloved toys in hopes someone will engage her in play. She fancies all toys and bouncy balls but her absolute favorite is her big stuffed dog. Lolly can entertain herself for hours dragging all her toys around but would love nothing more than another furry friend to play with. When she isn’t burning off some energy indoors, you can find Lolly requesting some nap time. She is the first to jump up on the couch, grab any available lap to cuddle in to settle into a much desired snuggle session or just settle in and watch her favorite TV shows. After her cuddle time with her humans, you can occupy Lolly’s time with one of her favorite chews. She can quite literally chew a bone forever! When Lolly isn’t following her humans around the house, you can locate her quietly exploring every inch of her foster home. She is quite smart, curious and wanting to know where everything is so Lolly must be supervised when wandering the home as she doesn’t know danger. Lolly is still a young puppy 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 extremely smart so we know Lolly will be eager to learn and receptive to positive reinforcement . Lolly absolutely gets along well with every human she meets (big or small)! She has interacted with children ages 1-15 and did great with all of them. Lolly’s foster family believes she would be best in a home with dog-savvy, gentle, children of any age, a home with a balanced dog to learn the ropes from. Lolly has been around cats and is very interested in them so we believe she would do just fine with a home that has cats. 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.
Lolly is doing amazingly well with potty training. She quickly picks up on things and does her business when she is asked. Lolly is in need of a signal for potty as she will have accidents if she cannot quickly grab the attention of her humans when she needs to go. 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. Lolly is crate trained, has not had any accidents and prefers not to be crated when her humans are home as being away from her humans while she can her them causes her some anxiety. She is only crated when her humans are away from the home for work or errands. Lolly does not prefer her crate at night as she would much rather share a human bed and snuggle in with her adoptive family. For her safety, we recommend a similar crating/sleeping schedule is kept for her.
Medically, Lolly seems to be in great health! She has been spayed, microchipped, updated on vaccinations/dewormings and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Lolly would do best in a home with a fenced-in yard due to her explorative nature, her ability to jump high, her overall speed and here love for the outdoors (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard) but because Lolly is a quiet dog, an apartment on the ground level with a tall fenced-in area would be okay too as long as her adoptive family is willing to offer Lolly daily exercise. She begs for exercise and a large yard to run and play would be the best fit for this fun-loving girl! We know Lolly would thrive in a home with lots of people to love on her and one with another dog for her to cuddle and play with. We also think Lolly would love to go to the office with her new family as long as the office environment is calm and Lolly can see her human at all times. Even better, Lolly would love a family that has a stay at home/work from home parent as she really desires to be around her people as much as possible! You can’t take her to the office or you don’t have the availability to stay at home - that’s okay! She would happily sleep the day away in her crate with a furry buddy to keep her company, a comfy blanket to lay her head on and a plush toy to play with as long as her people can arrange a mid-day potty break or two for her.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Lolly, 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.
