Mo 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.
Mo is a shy but sweet, relaxed, timid and reserved Frenchie girl. Her favorite pastimes include taking many naps throughout the day curled up in a comfy bed of her choice, taking in a chew session with her beloved antler or Nylabone, accepting gentle pets from her trusted foster family and sitting near the front window watching all the goings on of the neighborhood. Oh if Mo could only talk; the stories she could tell!!! Mo is super laid back once she is comfortable but it does take her time to warm up to new people and in new surroundings. She really takes to being outdoors! Her sweet smile lights up her face as she chases the leaves in the backyard and watches for the pesky squirrels. Mo is very comfortable outside and loves to run and chase in the fenced-in backyard. Mo is truly velcroed to her doggy bed. Wherever that bed is you can surely find Mo glued to it! She finds comfort and safety when she rests peacefully in it. She takes a passive and cautious approach to life as she is still building her confidence finding her way into pet life. Mo currently lives with a furry foster sibling and can be quite ambivalent to him. She would much prefer her own space and will let the resident pup know when he gets too close. Mo is quite apprehensive and nervous, requiring a little bit of time to warm up to adults and older children. She easily becomes overly anxious/overwhelmed around loud noises and lots of activity. Mo is still learning the ways of pet life and will need a family who is willing to spend time with her, provide the space she requires, offer her patience and introduce her to slowly to new things to build her confidence as she grows into pet life. She is making improvements daily and her foster family could not be more proud of her! Mo would most certainly do well in a house with a passive fur buddy and equally as well as an only dog. Her sweet but nervous personality would fit best with calm, gentle, dog savvy children over the age of 16. As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to other dogs and children in the household is a must and she should always be supervised to make sure she and they are kept safe.
Mo is nearly 100% potty trained. Her foster family reports her accidents are super far and between. Her adoptive family will need to be willing and able to keep her on a regular and consistent schedule for her continued potty training success. Mo is very responsive when it is time to go “outside” and willingly does all of her business quickly. Her foster family reports she is crate trained and at times will seek her crate for comfort or a time out. For her safety, a similar crating arrangement is suggested when her humans are away from the home and/or when she is left unsupervised so she is safe and secure.
Medically, Mo is in great health! She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested, microchipped and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Mo would do best in a home with a fenced in yard due to her need to wander the yard while outside, chase leaves and squirrels. She would do just fine in an apartment style home on the 1st floor with an attached fenced-in backyard as long as the apartment hallways are quiet and her adoptive family would be willing to give her ample time she needs outside. Mo is short and squatty so a house with many stairs would not be the best for her; however she is able to successfully do a few stairs at a time. She would do best in a quiet house with a family that is patient, willing to help her overcome her shy nature and help her develop her sweetness into greatness! We also think Mo would do best in a home that has a stay at home parent, work from home parent or are just general “homebodies”. She finds comfort in being with her people at all times. Initially, we don’t think she would be a great dog to take to the office due to timid nature in new surroundings. Mo would be much happier sleeping the day away curled up in her favorite bed with her family near.
Mo is a beautiful girl that needs a home that understands she is just in need of some patience to learn what pet life is all about, positive direction to learn what is expected in her adoptive home and this lovable girl will be forever a loyal friend to a family she can call her own!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Mo, 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.
