Rosie came into SNAFU Rescue via private owner given she could not get along with the smaller resident dogs in her previous home.
Rosie is a sweet girl whose favorite past times include getting snuggles from her people, food, chewing on squeaky stuffies, belly rubs and napping on the couch. Rosie is a very happy and playful girl and seems to get along well with every human she meets, including the two small children in her foster home. She also does great with the larger resident dog and has enjoyed time spent playing with other French Bulldogs. Rosie does have a history of aggression towards small dogs under 15 lbs but she does very well with larger dogs and other short noses. As with all of our dogs, we always recommend slow introductions when introducing a new dog to the household. Rosie coexists peacefully with the family bunny without issue. Cats are unknown but with her laid back personality and lack of interest in the bunny, she would probably be okay. Rosie enjoys going for walks but is still working on her leash manners. Being a puppy, Rosie is going through the typical stages of puppyhood, and while that certainly has its charms, it’ also has its challenges. She is still learning her puppy manners and will need a home with a family who is willing to continue her puppy & obedience training.
Rosie is doing well with potty training and has had a few accidents in the house. While she has been doing great with going potty outside, a regular and 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 willing to continue working on this skill. She has also done great with crate training and sleeps quietly in her crate during the night or when her foster family happens to leave the home. 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 she is 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, Rosie seems to be in great health! She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Rosie would do well in almost any type of home preferably with a fenced yard given she has been known to squeeze through small spaces to escape the yard. Rosie is still unsure about stairs but does well going in her foster home with two steps to the door. We also think she'd love to go work with her new family if they wanted to take her with them to the office! She loves to meet new people! If her people are not able to take her to work with them, no problem - she's completely happy sleeping the day away in her kennel as long as she has a toy or two to keep her busy and her people can arrange a mid-day potty break for her!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Rosie, please submit an adoption application for her 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.
No longer accepting applications, they are under review. Please check out the other dogs available for adoption.
