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, 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.

Sampson was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via breeder release. His breeder wanted him to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out his life as a cherished pet!
Sampson is quite the hunk of burning love. This handsome, easy going boy is learning to live the life of a pampered pet. While Sampson is thrilled with his new life, it’s important to remember that he is dealing with a big transition and as such will need a family who will continue to be patient and show him the ropes. Sampson loves human attention and will seek it out. He doesn’t really play with toys as physical play is his game. He loves a good romp with all the dogs in his foster home ---young, old, playful sedate—he adjusts to all their situations accordingly. Although his foster home does not have children, he likes to play with the neighborhood children. He also co-exists with the four cats in his foster home but he usually just ignores them. One of his favorite things to do is go for a car ride and will get quite excited at the prospect of one so, if you are looking for a riding companion, Sampson is your go to guy! Sampson does not know any commands and did not learn his puppy manners, so his humans will need to provide firm, consistent leadership and guidance to make sure he matures into a well-mannered French gentleman.
Sampson appears to be mostly potty trained and walks well on a leash. A regular, consistent schedule will help with is continued potty training in his 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 him. Sampson does great in his kennel and feels very comfortable and safe in there. Although toys are not really his thing, he does like an occasional peanut butter stuffed bone snack at night as a bedtime treat. For his safety, we recommend that he keep a similar crating schedule when his humans are away from the home and/or he is left unsupervised, so he is safe and secure while no one is home. He does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of him inside the home.
Medically, Sampson is in good health and has no known health issues. He has been neutered, had a dental, stenotic nares widened, is microchipped, has been updated on vaccinations/dewormings, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Sampson would do well in almost any type of home, but given he is not completely potty trained, a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling). We also think he’d love to go work with his new family if they wanted to take him with them to the office! If not, no problem at all – he will be happy to sleep away the day in his kennel as long as her people can arrange for a mid-day potty break for him!
