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.

Romeo was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via breeder release. His breeder wanted him to be placed in a loving pet home and to live the rest of his life as a loved and cherished pet.

Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo? This hunky boy lives up to his name by being a flirtatious ladies man who is seeking his Juliet family! If you are looking for a prince to spoil and call your own, Romeo fits the bill! He truly believes he is the center of the universe and will not accept anything less than all of your love and companionship!  Romeo is a handsome, sweet, silly, stubborn French bulldog who loves to love and shadow his foster family wherever they may go! He offers a ton of love and joy to give his forever family. He relentlessly begs for pets and gives his favorite humans lots of kisses. His favorite way to spend the evening is cuddled next to his people on the couch watching TV.  He enjoys collecting Nylabones and all the toys/treasures he can find! He is truly a little jester! Romeo is learning the ways of pet life and has made such great improvements in a short amount of time. He takes a while to warm up to new people, but once he trusts he will never wander! Romeo tends to be a little shy when first meeting new people. He can get a bit overwhelmed by new people, new environments and other animals however when he does get comfortable he is able to relax and enjoy all the newness! Romeo is slowly learning where he fits in a pack. He has gotten along very well in his foster home with his English bulldog foster sister, but has not cared much for his little Frenchie foster sis. We feel Romeo would thrive in a home where he is the only dog and would also do well in a home with another furry friend if they are well balanced and calm. Romeo does get along with other dogs, but slow introductions will be an absolute must for him as he is picky with his dog friends. Romeo was introduced to a cat and reportedly antagonized it for most part; a home without a furry feline is required for him.  Romeo has shown some resource guarding with food and human attention. This unwanted behavior is immediately corrected when this behavior occurs. His adoptive family must be willing to exercise firm, consistent leadership to address this behavior and help him acclimate to life as a pet. We feel that Romeo would do best in a home with children 8yrs or older who are calm, dog savvy and equally okay in a home without children.  Again, slow intros to both other dogs and children will be absolutely required to help Romeo integrate into his adoptive home.

Romeo is doing incredibly well with potty training but it continues to be a work in progress.  His foster family reports he is about 80% potty trained. Romeo has quickly picked up on going outside to potty and his accidents in the house or crate are few and far between. He makes it abundantly clear he is not a fan of the cold, snowy or rainy Midwest winters, so a little extra encouragement is needed to go outside in the chill. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with him, offer him a consistent schedule and work with him on a signal for potty. While he is crate trained, he is vocal that he does not enjoy being crated longer than necessary. Romeo is often rewarded (really bribed) with treats for entering his crate and we recommend that his adoptive family continue crating Romeo until he is 100% potty trained and for his own safety. Romeo does not know danger and is still learning how to be a pet, so it is imperative he be kept safe during his family’s time away. He has also done well in a larger room like a dog proof area like a small kitchen or laundry room that will allow him a bit of space to roam but keep him safe from any danger.

Medically, Romeo is in great health! He has been neutered, updated on vaccinations/deworming, is microchipped, heartworm tested and been given a clean bill of health for adoption by our veterinarian. Romeo is currently taking 10 mg of famotidine twice a day for acid reflux. He also has those pesky Frenchie allergies and benefits from a daily allergy pill in addition to cytopoint injections during high allergy times.  

Romeo would do well in any type of home as he is a master of climbing up stairs but needs some work climbing down. Since he is still working on potty training a fenced yard is preferred but not required for him.  He would do well in an apartment style dwelling preferably on the 1st floor with an attached yard as he is still potty training and working on his stair skills . Romeo does enjoy singing the song of his people, so if a shared walled home his family will want to work with him on his noise level. He continues to work on his leash manners and would relish a home that has the chance to work with him to perfect the art of walking. We think he’d love to go to work with his new family as Romeo enjoys a car ride and being the center of human attention! If not, Romeo is content staying home to keep an eye on things as long as he has a soft cozy bed, Nylabone or puzzle toy to keep him occupied in addition to a midday potty break.

Have you been searching for Mr. Right? A strong, good looking younger pup that will keep your bed warm and offer you a permanent best friend? A pup who prefers nights cuddled on the couch instead of a wild rambunctious night out with his furry pals? Do you seek to never go to the bathroom alone again? Look no further!
