Yeti 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.

Yeti is a huge sweetheart who is a bit laidback but very social (flirtatious) with humans!  He loves soft beds, blankets, napping, chewing on his favorite sticks, occasionally grabbing a dog friendly toy and napping on his comfy dog bed (yes we said napping twice!).  Yeti is the ultimate couch potato but don’t be fooled by his age as he is young at heart! Yeti has a very sweet loving disposition and just wants to be loved and surrounded by some peace and quiet. Yeti really has yet to discover toys outside of mostly staring at them as he would much rather settle in for a quick snooze.  Yeti’s favorite time is in the morning where he finds most of his energy.  He can often be found running zoomies, requesting to be outside exploring the yard.  The new smells, the abundance of sticks puts him in such a happy mood!  He currently lives with several furry foster siblings and tolerates their rambunctious behavior quite well as he really doesn’t pay much mind to them.  Their rowdy nature, when impeding his living and sleeping area, causes Yeti to seek some alone time; he is very vocal on his dislikes.  Yeti’s mature personality doesn’t allow him to waste time and energy on being child-like!!   He is experiencing a big change and will need a patient and understanding  family that is willing to offer him the space he needs to develop into pet life and to learn what is expected of him in the home. Yeti seems to get along well with every adult human he meets and has done very well with every other dog he meets as long as they don’t want him to play; he would be a-okay as an only pet too!  He has yet to be around children but given his need to be in a calm environment we feel Yeti would do best with kids 6 years and older who are calm, gentle and dog savvy. As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to both other dogs and children are must to ensure everyone is kept safe. 

Yeti is doing amazingly well with potty training. He wore a belly band to prevent marking and with that assistance along with a neuter  his marking behavior has ceased.  Yeti has been nearly accident-free in his foster home because is kept on a consistent outside schedule but an occasional poop-cident can occur. His adoptive family will need to be willing and able to keep him on a regular/consistent schedule  and find a signal that he needs to go outside for his continued potty training success.  He has also done great (actually perfect) with crate training and sleeps quietly in his crate during the day when his foster family happens to leave the home. Given Yeti loves soft comfy spots, he would love nothing more than to have his crate appointed with a soft crate pad and blanket. 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, Yeti seems to be in good health. He suffers from seasonal allergies (like most French Bulldogs) and must be kept on a limited ingredient diet along with daily allergy pills (Benadryl/Zyrtec) and would benefit from cytopoint shots during high season.  Yeti has been neutered, had a dental, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, is microchipped and has been given the ok for adoption by our veterinarian! 

Yeti would do well in almost any type of home but a house with little to no stairs will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with many stairs) as his short little legs prohibit him from using the stairs successfully.  Yeti loves being outside so a house with a fenced-in yard is preferred for him.  He would prefer a quiet and relaxed family that enjoys evenings outside on the patio in warmer months and on the couch in front of the TV in the cooler months.  We think he'd love to go to work with his new family as Yeti loves to be around his people as long the office environment is quiet.  You are not able to take him to work- not a problem as he would much prefer a work from home or stay at home parent.  Yeti suffers from a bit of separation anxiety and being around his trusted humans give him great comfort. 

Yeti is a super sweet love bug who is slowing down his lifestyle and is looking for a family to call his very own!  He is a shadow dog that would spoil his adoptive family with lots of love!  He is learning to trust, accept affection and is searching for a patient family to teach him the spoiled ways of pet life!  Yeti will have anyone wrapped around his little paw in no time!  

If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Yeti, please submit an adoption application for him 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.
