Luna 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.
Luna is just a total sweetheart! She is quite rambunctious when she is playing with her furry friends! Tuna, as her foster family affectionately calls her, is such a fun, playful and spunky puppy. She falls head over paws for anyone and anything that will give her undivided attention. Luna loves nothing more than a good snuggle everywhere and anywhere her people are! She demands to be around and near her people at all times as Luna is your typical velcro French Bulldog puppy! Who could ever resist that precious face? When she isn’t loving her people, she loves to play with all of her foster siblings or curl up on the floor seeking the warmth from another animal, blanket or comfy bed. Luna isn’t one to consistently play with dog appropriate toys as she would much rather find something she shouldn’t be getting herself into! Luna Tuna is still a very young dog and will need constant supervision as she does not know danger. She loves the company of all dogs especially that of her Frenchie foster sister therefore we feel she would flourish in a home with at least one other balanced dog. Luna mimics the behavior of other dogs, accelerating her development and proper dog manners. She is will need patience, proper leadership to ensure her success in her adoptive home. She loves all people BIG and SMALL. Luna is wonderful around children, is very tolerant and gentle with them. Because of her inviting disposition we feel Luna would do wonderful in a home with children of any age knowing that she has some puppy tendencies such as finger nibbling. As with all our dogs, we recommend slow introductions between dogs AND supervision around children when introducing a new dog into your home to make sure she and they are kept safe to ensure a smooth transition to her forever home.
Luna is just a puppy and puppies take time to potty train. Her foster family keeps Luna on a strict consistent schedule and has had great success with minimal accidents. As with all of our dogs her adopter must be willing and able to pick up on her cues, have a signal for potty and keep her on a consistent schedule in effort to maintain her potty-training success. Luna is not especially fond of her crate. She is crated only when her foster family leaves the house and at night. Luna has major FOMO and would rather be with her other furry friends than by herself. We believe once she is fully trained, Luna Tuna would love to sleep in bed with her adoptive family as this girl is a snuggle-bug.
Medically, Luna is overall in great health. She had two surgeries to close a cleft in her soft palate. Her cleft is completely closed but should be monitored as it could slightly open as she grows and ages. Luna has been spayed, is up-to-date on all vaccinations, microchipped and given the okay to adopt by our veterinarian. She will need to be heartworm tested at one year of age.
Luna would do well in almost any type of home but would prefer a house with a fenced yard as this tiny little girl fancies the outdoors. A home with few stairs is also preferred as Luna is still so small and is hesitant around stairs. She would be a-okay with a pair of loving arms to carry her up and down! You can often find Luna exploring and running the perimeter of the backyard in a true Frenchie zoomie fashion. We also think that Luna would eventually love to go to the office with her new family! You cannot take her to the office- that is okay! She is happy to sleep the day away as long as she has a furry pal to keep her company, a soft plush blanket and is offered a midday potty break or two. Ideally Luna is looking for a family with children, other furry members to keep her warm and cozy in the cold months and a fenced-in yard to run all about in the warmer months. Her energy is endless and needs a family that has the patience and is prepared to take care of the needs of a young dog.

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.
