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.

Paisley was surrendered to 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!
Paisley's foster family reports that she is a MAJOR sweetheart! While Paisley is loving life, it’s important to remember that she is dealing with a big transition and, as such, will need a family who will continue to be patient and show her what being a loved pet is all about. Although she is very loving and wants nothing more than a couch and some snuggles with her people, she does get overwhelmed easily by fast/quick movements and loud noises. That hasn’t stopped her from giving love to everyone around her, though! She seems to love anyone any everyone she meets as long as they are calm and gentle with her. While she seems to do very well with other dogs and cats, too, Paisley’s favorite spot in the whole house is snuggling on the couch or in bed with her people. She is discovering toys, chews, and what it's like to just generally being a dog. She has been known to enjoy warm sunny afternoons in the yard and although she does like being outside, she is not a huge fan of the cold and prefers to wear a warm sweater in the cooler months! Paisley also does well with gentle children under supervision but she should always supervised when she is around kids, to make sure both she and they are kept safe. As with all of our dogs, we always recommend slow introductions with both other pets *and* children when introducing a new dog to the household.
Paisley is doing amazingly well on potty training but has had a few accidents when she has been scared or startled. Her foster family reports that she does wonderfully when let out regularly and is currently working with her on letting her humans know exactly when she needs to go outside. A regular, consistent schedule will help with her continued potty training in her new home. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with her. Paisley does great with her crate and has no issues sleeping there when her foster family is away from the home and/or she is left unsupervised. For her safety, we recommend that she keep a similar crating schedule when her humans are away from the home and/or she is left unsupervised, so that she is kept safe and secure while no one is home. She does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of her inside the home.
Medically, Paisley seems to be in good health! She has been treated for some skin infections upon coming into the rescue and is currently on her road to recovery! Her foster family is still working on clearing up some yeast on her paws. She has been spayed, had a dental, is microchipped, has been updated on vaccinations/dewormings, and has been cleared by our veterinarian fpr adoption!
Side note: Paisley does not have any special dietary requirements but tends to be a picky eater at times. Her foster family has found a food that she enjoys and, while not a requirement, it is recommended for her to continue on that food after adoption.
Paisley would do well in almost any type of home but her favorite home would have a sunny fenced yard as she likes to spend a lot of time outside when the weather is just right. Paisley would do well going to work with her people as long as the office was quiet, calm and, of course, dog friendly. If not, no problem at all - she will be happy to sleep away the day in her kennel with a chew toy to keep her busy as long as her people can arrange for a mid-day potty break for her!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Paisley, please fill out an adoption application for her today!
