Marnie came into the SNAFU Rescue via a breeder release. Her breeder wanted her to be placed in a loving home and spend the rest of her years being a spoiled pet living out her life as happily as she can be!
Marnie is a sweet, rambunctious young Frenchie girl. She wants all the loves and will kiss her beloved humans nonstop if you let her! Marnie is quick to warm up to new people and environments, as long as she is with her trusted people. Her happy place is in the presence of her people and around her furry friends! She will partake in all the play her foster sibling will let her. She is such a sweet puppy with lots of love to give and get! Marnie is a cuddle bug who always wants to touch when she naps (lest you might sneak away from her!) She is a high energy Frenchie girl and can often be found chewing on her bones, playing with her toys or looking for a human or dog to engage her in play. She loves to play an endless game of fetch with her favorite tennis ball. Marnie has developed a great disposition and will share her prized possessions with another furry creature but will test the waters to see if she can get it back. Her foster sister will usually relinquish the toy or bone but if she doesn’t, Marnie will go get a new one to make her jealous. Once her foster sister is distracted, she will take the original object for herself! She is one smart cookie! Marnie has yet to master leash skills and gets a little nervous with the harness and leash. This is something she will need more work on from her adoptive family. She will also need a family who is willing to spend extra time with her, offer her ongoing patience, and introduce her slowly to new things to build her confidence. Marnie currently lives with several furry foster siblings and will play with them all she can! She does want all the attention and can be a bit of an attention hog (especially if you are giving her foster sister loves!). She gets jealous of anyone else getting attention and will nose her way to the front of the action, so as to not miss out. Her foster family calls lots of “jelly alerts” throughout the day! Overall, Marnie loves her furry friends and finds comfort in their presence. Marnie is experiencing a big change and because of that, she needs consistent leadership, and positive reinforcement to help her to learn proper dog manners in her adoptive home. She seems to get along well with every human she meets after warming up to them. Marnie can be shy at first but can easily be won over with scratches and kisses. Due to her high energy, sweet, yet persistent disposition, we think she would do best in a home that has other dogs for her to play with and children of any age that have been around dogs before. Slow introductions and supervision around children are a must to be sure they and she are kept safe. She is slowly learning manners and we believe should benefit from a balanced, active fur buddy in her adoptive home.
Marnie’s foster family happily reports she is making great strides in potty training when kept on a consistent schedule and when taken out with the other resident dogs. She will greatly benefit from a signal for potty. Her adoptive family must be willing to continue to keep her on a regular and consistent schedule to help with potty training in her new home. Marnie is completely crate trained and is also trusted in a small dog-safe space for a short time if her foster family happens to leave the home. For her safety, we recommend a similar crating arrangement when her people happen to be away from the home. She does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of her inside the home. Marnie enjoys the comfort of the human bed at night and prefers to cuddle up next to her human or the resident dog. She is still learning that bedtime is not wrestle time, when you first get in bed (she sees it as a giant, comfy wrestling ring!). She will sleep through the night and wake you up in the morning when she needs to go out.
Medically, Marnie seems to be in great health! She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested, had a dental, and has been given the okay to adopt by our veterinarian. Those typical Frenchie seasonal allergies are unknown at this point so that will need to be monitored by the adoptive family.
Marnie would be happiest in a house with a fenced yard (as opposed to a multiple-floor, shared-walled apartment-style dwelling with no yard) due to her high energy because she is still potty training and does not do well on a leash. Plus, she needs a wide open space to help her burn off all the puppy energy (and run those Frenchie zoomies)! Marnie has mastered the stairs and would do well in a home that has them or doesn’t. Ideally, Marnie is searching for a family that has a lot of time to devote to a puppy who is working on her manners. She is crate trained but has only been in there for a few hours during the day when the foster family is away. She needs the least amount of kennel time to help her burn off the energy! Again, Marnie is still learning the ways of pet life, learning to trust, and needs an engaged family to help build her confidence. She would love a family that can offer her companionship, unlimited pets/scratchies, and an active home to help work off her energy. She has made tremendous daily improvements and just needs a little extra patience as she learns how to “pet”. Marnie is opening up more and more every day and is proving to be quick to learn and to do what is asked of her! This girl has a lot of love inside her and will make a loyal and loving companion.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Marnie, please submit an adoption application for her today!!
We are no longer accepting applications for Marnie!
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.
