Cora came into SNAFU Rescue via breeder release. Her breeder wanted her to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out her life as a cherished pet.
Cora is a sweet, gentle, relaxed, laidback and reserved Frenchie girl. Her favorite pastimes include taking many naps throughout the day, watching the going ons of the neighborhood, relaxing on a comfy surface (preferably on the couch) and taking in a good snuggle with her people. Cora is truly a chill, slow paced Frenchie girl that will get bursts of energy especially when outdoors. She will chase the squirrels, birds and even the occasional pesky leaf! Cora truly loves being outside soaking up the sun and being the neighborhood watch dog. If dogs could only talk…. When she is ready to relax, Cora searches for a nearby dog bed and may grab an antler chew to nibble on. After a little chew session, she is off searching for the comfort of her humans and looking for some pets and scratchies. She takes a passive approach to life as she is still building her confidence finding her way into pet life. Cora currently lives with furry foster sibling and for the most part is ambivalent to him. She would much rather follow around her humans all around the house than engage in any kind of playful activity with him. Although she does get along well with the resident pug, she can get a little cranky at times wanting her space. Cora will give her furry friend a little snarl or quick movement to let him know she needs her own space. Cora is quite social around new people, falling head over paws in love with everyone she meets! Cora is quite the snuggle bug seeking attention and cuddles from all people who will offer her a warm lap. Cora is still learning the ways of pet life and will need a family who is willing to spend time with her, offer her patience and introduce her slowly to new things to build her confidence as she grows into pet life. She is making improvements daily and her foster family could not be more proud of her! Cora would most certainly do well in a house with a passive fur buddy and equally as well as an only dog but we feel she may like having a furry friend to romp around with and keep her company. Her sweet personality would fit best with calm, gentle, dog savvy children of any age. As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to other dogs and children in the household is a must and she should always be supervised to make sure she and they are kept safe.
Cora is 90% potty trained. Her foster family reports very few accidents since she has arrived. Her adoptive family will need to be willing and able to keep her on a regular and consistent schedule for her continued potty training success. Cora is very responsive when it is time to go “outside” (even gets a little excited) and picked up good outside behaviors with the help of her foster brother.. Her foster family reports she is crate trained but will not seek out her crate and would much rather NOT be in it. She doesn’t love when she is put in the crate when her foster family leaves for work or at night for bedtime. She reluctantly will go in her crate when offered a treat AND if she has her foster brother nearby. He gives her comfort. Cora would rather share a bed with her adoptive for unlimited bedtime snuggles. For her safety, a similar crating arrangement is suggested when her humans are away from the home and/or when she is left unsupervised so she is safe and secure.
Medically, Cora is in great health! She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested, nares widened, microchipped and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian! Cora seems to have some knee inflammation and would benefit from a daily joint supplement (Phyto-Flex which can be found on smile.amazon.com or chewy.com).
Cora would do best in a home with a fenced yard due to her desire to wander and her need to chase unwanted critters out of her space. She would do just fine in a ground level apartment style home with little to no stairs (1 or 2 stairs is all she can handle) as long as her adoptive family would be willing to give her ample time she needs outside. She would do best in a home with a family that is patient, willing to help her find the confidence in pet life and help her develop her sweetness into greatness! We also think Cora would do best in a home that has a stay at home parent or a work from home parent. She finds comfort in being with her people at all times. We also think she would be a great dog to take to the office due to her flirtatious disposition and her love for all people. Cora is a beautiful girl that is looking for a home that understands she is still learning how to be a pet. She is just in need of some patience, direction and this lovable girl will be forever a loyal friend to a family she can call her very own!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Cora, 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.
