Roman was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via breeder release, he needed to be in a home with no other intact males. His breeder wanted him to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out his life as a cherished pet!.
Roman is happy, social, playful, sweet Frenchie who adores his people. Be ready for snuggles and a dog who follows you around like your shadow because he just loves to hang out and be near his people! Roman desperately wants to please his people. He is extremely responsive to many commands, loves encouragement and will do just about anything for a treat! When Roman isn’t glued to his humans, you can find him exploring the yard, asking for a long walk or chewing on a bone. No Hide Chews, Himalayan Chews and Pig Ears (cut in smaller pieces) are his favorites! Roman just started to show interest in toys and enjoys a good game of tug of war and chase with his Frenchie foster brothers. He loves to follow them all around the house and the yard. Roman plays gently with his foster brothers. He has shown aggression ONLY with the alpha dog in his foster home and ONLY around food/food bowls and bones. His aggression is very intermittent and does not happen every time food or bones or present. It seems to be situational and for Roman’s safety and the safety of other pets in the home we suggest he is fed separately and enjoys a bone all by himself or under strict supervision. Roman seems to get along well with every human he meets! He has not been around small children (only teenagers) or cats but his foster family feels he would be just fine! His foster family believes he would be best in a home with dog-savvy, gentle, middle school aged children or older and/or a home with an older, submissive dog. As with all of our dogs, we recommend slow introductions between dogs AND supervision around children when introducing a new dog in your home to make sure both he and they are kept safe.
Roman is 100% potty trained. Prior to his neuter, he was marking around his foster families home. They report he has only had only one marking incident post-neuter. In order for Roman continue to be successfully potty trained in his new home his new family must be willing to work with him on a signal for potty. Currently, Roman paces when he needs to go outside. Roman isn’t a big fan of his crate however he does sleep quietly in his crate when his foster family happens to leave the home for work only barking when he hears the door open upon their arrival home. Roman is in his crate ONLY when his foster family is at work (6 hours a day). He does sleep quietly in his foster families bed at night. He seems to have separation anxiety and for his safety, we recommend that he is only in his crate when his humans are away from the home and a similar crating/sleeping schedule is kept for him.
Medically, Roman seems to be in great health! He has been neutered, updated on vaccinations/dewormings and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Roman would do well in a home with a yard, a family that can spend a lot of time with him and being willing to take him on several walks a week (he does amazing on a leash). A house with a fenced yard/large yard will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard) as prior to coming into the rescue Roman had 3 acres to enjoy and explore. He craves exercise and a large yard to run and play would be the best fit for this playful boy! We also think he'd love to go work with his new family if they wanted to take him with, to the office! He is a quiet boy and loves to meet new people! If his people are not able to take him to work with them, no problem - he can sleep the day away in his crate with a his comfy blanket as long as his people can arrange a mid day potty break for him.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Roman, please submit an adoption application for him today!!
Applications Are Under Review. We are no longer accepting
applications for Roman.
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.
