Rolly was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via a private party. His owner wanted Him to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out his life as a cherished pet!.
Rolly is genuinely a happy, curious, active, playful, sweet Frenchie who adores all people big and small. Be ready for a dog who follows you around like your shadow because he just loves to hang out and be near his people! When Rolly isn’t glued to his humans making sure he's the center of their attention, you can find him exploring his foster home, chewing on a nylabone or playing with any plush squeaky toy in his sight. He sure enjoys tromping around the yard and playing with all his toys; it really is quite adorable! Rolly has an explorative nature, loves the outdoors especially when he has the ability to roam the entire yard with his beloved human in tow. After all his exploring, you can find Rolly looking for a safe and comfy spot to lounge and take a long frenchie nap. Rolly is the perfect mix of playful and chill. This sweet boy is truly young at heart and has the activity level of a dog much younger but needs the rest of an older dog. He seems to get along well with every human he meets and fancies all children! Rolly is very interested in children, especially those that will engage him in some playtime. He can get overly excited and will often offer love nibbles. Rolly has several furry foster siblings and often will show his alpha side around while in their presence. If any dog has a squeaky toy, Rolly is on the hunt to find where it is! He gets along famously with the two submissive dogs in the home. They are not phased by his inability to respect their personal space. However with the other two alpha dogs in the home, his “in your face” nosiness can cause some unwanted issues. He will also be the first to butt in when another dog is being offered pets. He seriously has a case of FOMO when it comes to any pets or attention! Rolly is experiencing a big change and will need a patient and understanding family to help him overcome his social awkwardness around dogs and be able to redirect unwanted behaviors (nibbling). Rolly is not a cat friendly dog. He will chase the resident cat as he is obsessed with her and will stress out the cat. Although he would never hurt the cat it is best that he doesn’t have the distraction of a furry feline. His foster family believes he would do best in a home with calm, dog-savvy, gentle children of any age or older and would be great as the only dog in the home or equally okay with a submissive dog. As with all of our dogs, we recommend slow introductions and supervision around children when introducing a new dog in your home to make sure both he and they are kept safe.
Rolly is nearly potty trained. In order for him to continue to be successfully potty trained in his new home, his adoptive family must be willing to keep him on a consistent schedule and work with him on a signal for potty. He is completely crate trained and sleeps quietly without any accidents in his crate when her foster family happens to be away from the home. For Rolly’s safety, we recommend that he is kept on a similar crating schedule when his humans happen to be away from the home.
Medically, Rolly seems to be in good health. He has been neutered, updated on vaccinations/dewormings and has been given an okay to adopt by our veterinarian. Rolly has a few required daily needs. He will need to maintain a special low protein diet to help his kidney functions. In addition, a daily joint supplement is needed to help with his mild arthritis in his left leg (Dogzymes Phyto-Flex, which can be found on chewy.com or smile.amazon.com). Lastly, artificial tears/optimune may be permanently necessary if the vet feels it is helping the keratitis in his eyes. A recheck of his blood levels every 6-12 months is required to make sure his kidneys continue to function properly.
Due to his explorative nature, Rolly would do well in a home with a yard, a family that can spend a lot of time with him outside and also be willing to make him the center of their attention!. A house with a fenced yard will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard); due to his arthritis many stairs can be a problem for him. He is okay going up a few but often requests his foster family carry him if it becomes too much! Because of Rolly’s desire to be around his people at all times, we think he would love to go to work with his new family if they wanted to take him to the office. Ideally, Rolly would love a stay at home or work from home parent. He is just a sweet boy who wants to spend his retirement years surrounded by those he loves! Rolly is a silly, awkwardly handsome boy who is looking for a cool place to nap, a basket full of toys to place with and family to call his very own. He will forever be the most loyal and loving companion.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Rolly, please submit an adoption application for him 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..
