Lucky came into SNAFU Rescue via breeder release. His breeder wanted him to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out his life as a cherished pet.
Lucky is a typical happy-go-lucky, clumsy, daffy, busy, playful puppy who loves anyone and everyone he meets! This social butterfly is very active and has quite the flirtatious personality. He absolutely loves to play with the other dogs in his foster home; he has also tried to slowly chase the cat in enange in some play! Lucky can be found digging in his toy box searching for the loudest squeaky toy he can find, the louder the better! After he finds the perfect one he will expect his humans to throw so he can chase it; he hasn’t quite learned he is suppose to bring it back! Lucky is a typical cute clumsy Frenchie puppy… it is all play, play and more play! He circles around his foster home flirting with his furry foster siblings begging for some attention or a signal from them that they want to play with him. Lucky fancies all people, pretty much anyone he can find to entertain him. He is wonderful with children of all ages but due to his young age he is still learning manners. Lucky will need a patient and understanding family to help him learn proper dog commands and what is expected of him in the home. Because he is still learning manners we feel he would do best in a home with children 12 years or older who are calm, gentle and dog savvy and would do great with another dog of any size that is calm and passive. As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to other dogs and children in the household is a must and he should always be supervised to make sure both he and they are kept safe.
Lucky is still a puppy; potty training is a work in progress. He has been doing well going potty outside, a regular and consistent schedule will help with continued potty training in his new home. Due to Lucky’s surgery (mentioned below under medical) he may be more difficult to train to poop outside. His adopters must be proactive to avoid constipation (again, mentioned below). As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with him. Lucky occasionally will have accidents in his crate but they are becoming fewer and further between. He is completely crate trained, responds to the command “kennel” and sleeps quietly in the crate when his foster family happens to be away from the home as long as he has a comfy blanket and a squeaky toy to occupy his time. Lucky does sleep in his crate at night but would likely prefer sharing a human bed and snuggles with his forever family!
Medically, Lucky is in good health. Lucky came into the rescue with an injured rectum. He had several surgeries to fix his rectum including a stump removal (he doesn’t have a tail). Post stump removal surgery, sweet Lucky developed and infection and had to endure another surgery to treat the infection and a ruptured colon. All this at 5 month old! The good news is Lucky is a normal puppy but needs ongoing monitoring and attention to ensure his bottom area is ALWAYS kept clean. He is currently on and will need to continue to take fiber supplements (NaturVet Stool Ease which can be found at chewy.com or smile.amazon.com) and perhaps have his food moistened to avoid constipation keeping his stool soft making it easier for him to do his business outside. Lucky has been neutered, updated on vaccinations/deworming, heartworm tested, microchipped and has been given the okay for adoption by our veterinarian.
Lucky would do well in almost any type of home but since he is still working on potty training, learning to walk on a leash and still mastering the stairs, a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard). Lucky is a go with the flow kinda puppy so he can adapt to any family dynamic, low key or active! He would also love to go to work with his new family if they wanted to take him to the office! As mentioned, he loves all people and will quickly become fast friends with everyone at the office just by fluttering his adorable puppy eyes. If his people are not able to take him to work with them, no problem! He is completely happy sleeping the day away in his crate as long as he has a couple of toys to keep him occupied and his new family can arrange a potty break or two for him throughout the day!
Lucky is a very active, typical energetic puppy, so please be ready for the needs and care requirements of a young dog (and his specific bathroom needs). If you are looking for an addition to your family that needs and wants your undivided attention, then Lucky just might be for you and your family!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Lucky, please submit an adoption application for him 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.
