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.

Wren came to SNAFU Rescue after being found as a stray. Her finder wanted to ensure she found the best home possible as her forever home.
Wren is a very sweet, but nervous little girl. She will need a calm home where she can continue to gain confidence, build trust, and flourish. Wren wholeheartedly loves her people. Her forever family will need to be ready for snuggles and a dog who will be your shadow as this girl is a true Velcro Frenchie! Given her nervous tendencies, Wren does need to have slower introductions with other dogs. She is curious and wants to be friends but can be a bit awkward with other dogs. She will play, snuggle, and be right at home with them once she’s learned the pack order. Wren currently lives with two dog savvy cats. She has not shown much interest in them and does very well with having them around. Wren has been around children and appreciates when they give her the gentle attention she desires. A home with dog savvy, respectful children would be just fine with her! As with all dogs, we always recommend she should be supervised when she is around kids to make sure both she and they are kept safe.
Wren is doing very well with potty training. Her foster family reports she’s only had a few accidents and that was when she was initially learning her foster families new household routine. She will potty almost every time she is taken outside! She is a bit subtle with her potty queue and stands quietly at the door to be let out. Given her nervous tendencies, she likes/does best if her people go out with her. As with all our dogs, any adopter will need to be patient and willing to continue working on potty training. Wren is currently invited to sleep in her foster family’s bed. She will snuggle up close, sometimes under the covers and sleep all night. Wren has done well with crate training when her foster family happens to leave the home. She can easily be bribed to her crate with a treat. For her safety, we recommend she keep a similar crating schedule when her humans are away from the home or she is left unsupervised, so she is safe and secure. She does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of her inside the home.
Wren deals with some chronic “urpyness”. This occurs mainly when she is nervous, stressed, or over-excited. She has had a barium swallow test and x-rays to rule out any medical abnormalities (everything appeared normal). She is currently taking metoclopramide and it has seemed to help with minimizing the “urps”. It is recommended she remain on the medication, likely for the duration of her life. The prescription can be filled at Walmart for less than $10 a month. Wren has had nare and palate surgery to open up her airways, has been spayed, microchipped, and is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations/dewormings.
Wren would do well in most any type of home. She has mastered stairs and is comfortable walking on a leash. She doesn’t like to stray far from her people, so she would not require a fenced in yard. She does enjoy sunbathing on a nice day. If the yard is not fenced she would enjoy a secure patio to relax on. We also think Wren would love to go to work with her new family if they wanted to take her with them to the office! She does wonderfully on car rides, is a quiet girl and loves to meet new people. If her people are not able to take her to her to work with them, no problem – she’s happy to sleep the day away at home in her kennel with a couple Nylabones to keep her occupied and as long as her family can arrange for a mid day potty break for her!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Wren, please fill out an adoption application for her today!
