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.

Nevada 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. 

Nevada is a relaxed, calm, lazy little frenchie girl who loves just hanging out and being at the feet of her people.  She is a true velcro frenchie that wants to be able to see you, hear you and be near you as she finds comfort being surrounded by her people.  Nevada likes to be in the middle of all the happenings in her foster home!  Major case of FOMO.  She is starting to come out of her shell more and more every day.  Nevada, even though a super, adorable sassy senior, is becoming more active and will run very short zoomies when feeling spunky!  She isn’t one for snuggling as she much prefers to spend her nap time at your feet, behind your feet or in front of your feet.  Nevada has yet to discover any interest in toys as she would rather seek her enjoyment from throwing around an empty dog bowl and chasing it around the home.  After she exhausts her energy bowl flipping, you can find Nevada searching for a comfy place for nap time.  She truly enjoys to chill most of the time and is just starting to enjoy the outdoors.  Nevada will weave in and out of the blooming flowers to grab a sniff or two; she really can be quite curious.  She currently resides with another furry foster pal.  Nevada does “okay” with them but she is still learning that sharing is caring.  She believes that what is hers is hers and what is theirs is also hers; especially food.  Nevada is experiencing a big change and is in need of a patient and understanding family that will gently guide her into the ways of pet life and what is expected of her in her adoptive home.  Nevada has been introduced to small active children and she immediately fell head over paws for them! She frequently attends softball/baseball games and soaks up all the attention she can get from the littles.  Due to Nevada’s sweet, kind and gentle disposition we feel she would do best with respectful, dog savvy children of any age. She should be supervised when she is around children to make sure both she and they are kept safe.   As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to other dogs in the household is a must. Due to her need to be the leader, we feel she would do best around easy-going, submissive dogs or preferably as an only pet.  

Nevada is still working on potty training. She is making amazing progress and her foster family reports her accidents are fewer and further between (unless rain is in the forecast).  Nevada’s adoptive family will need to find a signal for potty in addition to being patient and willing and able to keep her on a regular and consistent schedule for her continued training. Nevada HATES the crate. She has severe crate anxiety and much prefers the comfort of a gated room that is appointed with a soft pillow or bed.  Nevada will occasionally have an accident in the evening but overall she is getting much better holding it in the evening.  

Medically, Nevada seems to be in good health. She has been spayed, nares widened, a dental, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested, microchipped and has been given the okay to adopt by our veterinarian. Nevada suffers from those pesky Frenchie allergies and responds well to daily allergy meds and cytopoint during high allergy months.  She must remain on Proin in perpetuity due to some dribbles (the meds are helping immensely).  

Nevada would do best in a house with a fenced yard as she has not yet mastered how to walk on a leash. However, a ground level apartment with minimal stairs (she is uneasy with more than 2-3 stairs at a time) would be just fine if there is an adjacent fenced-in area.  Nevada would enjoy a pair of loving arms to carry her up and down the stairs when she is feeling lazy.  She would be very happy and do best spending her retirement years with a quiet family that spends time at home as she really craves to be around her people (at their feet really) at all times. Given her calm and sweet nature, we also think she'd love to go work with her new family if they wanted to take her with them to their quiet office.   If her people are not able to take her to work with them, no problem at all - she would much rather have a work from home or stay at home family member to follow around all day long!  Nevada had a bit of a rough start to lift and deserves to be spoiled with unconditional love and patience!  She is such a sweetheart who needs help learning the ways of pet life.  She will forever be a loyal companion. 

If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Nevada, please submit an adoption application for her today!
