NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at least a 2-3 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application. We typically give a week for a "grace period" for new applications to come in on any newly available dog in order to give everyone a fair chance to submit an application. 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. :-)

Valencia came into SNAFU Rescue after being purchased from a rehoming ad on craigslist in order to ensure she found the best home possible as her forever home!
Valencia is a happy, playful puppy who loves anyone and everyone. She is a typical happy go lucky, silly, goofy puppy. Valencia loves *everyone* she meets including cats/kitties, kids,and she especially loves to play with the other dogs in her foster home. She is great with gentle children, under supervision (she is a puppy, so as with any dog, should always supervised when she is around kids, to make sure she is kept safe).
Valencia is currently working on potty training and while she is not 100% yet, she has been making great progress! A regular 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 able to and willing to continue working on potty training with her. She has also done great with crate training and sleeps quietly in her kennel during the night or when her foster family happens to leave the home. Since she does well in her crate, we recommend that she keep a similar crating schedule when her humans are away from the home so she is safe and secure while no one is home. She does not know danger and what is okay and not okay to chew on at this point!
Medically, Valencia is in good health although she is currently quite a small English Bulldog! She has been spayed and is up to date on all of her vaccinations and heartworm prevention and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian.
Valencia would do well in almost any type of home. She is used to going out with a fenced yard for potty breaks and does not know how to potty on a leash so a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for her (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling), though this is not a requirement for adoption. She goes up and down stairs like a champ and has no issues with them. We also think she'd do fine if her new family wanted to take her with them to the office. If not, she's completely happy sleeping the day away in her kennel with a nylabone or two to keep her busy as long as her family can arrange for a mid-day potty break for her!!
Valencia is a very active, energetic puppy, so please be ready for the needs and care requirements of a puppy. If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Valencia please fill out an adoption application for her today!
