2 years old [DOB: 02-02-2021]
Angel came into the SNAFU Rescue via a breeder release. Her breeder wanted her to be placed in a loving home and spend the rest of her years being a spoiled pet.
Angel is a very active, social, gentle, mild, lighthearted Frenchie who loves being able to snuggle her people. Angel loves to grab a spot on the couch or in a comfy bed and nibbles away on her favorite bone and quickly falls into a quick Frenchie snooze. After a little snooze, Angel is once again grabbing a few of her favorite chews (bones and crinkle toys are her favorite) to start the process all over again. Angel enjoys spending time outside but is NOT a fan of the colder temperatures. After playing with her foster pack, Angel will find a soft comfy bed to lay on, or even better; she will snuggle with one of her humans. Angel hasn’t found a furry friend or human that she hasn’t adored. She really is an overall content girl who goes with the flow, beats to her drum, and can make those who love her most. She can fit right into a pack and has done very well with one of her foster pack that can be pretty bossy. Angel is a goofy clumsy social butterfly, so she’ll need at least one furry brother or sister in her forever family to help guide her. She often can have a “deer in the headlights” look and it takes a little extra effort to motivate her but with a furry pal around that may accelerate her growth. Angel is experiencing a big transition and will need proper leadership and guidance to know what is expected in her adoptive home. She will need some time to adapt to yet another new home but with the proper leadership and a consistent routine she will adjust just fine. Angel seems to get along well with every human (big or small) as she is happiest when she is around her people. She is very gentle with the tiny human in her foster home offering him lots of love. Her foster family believes she would be best in a home with dog-savvy and gentle children of any age and a home with at least one other balanced furry family member. As with all of our dogs, we recommend slow introductions between dogs and supervision around children when introducing a new dog in your home to make sure both she and they are kept safe.
Angel is struggling with potty training. She did much better when the weather was warm and had a very strict schedule. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to offer her a consistent schedule and possibly work with her on a signal for potty. Angel is crate trained, but has had accidents in her kennel, so her new family needs to be ready and willing to give her the commitment she needs to continue to pick up on potty training, no matter how long that process might take. She will gladly sit for a treat and go in her crate. When her family happens to be away from the home, she is safely secure in her crate. We think since Angel loves to cuddle and snuggle her people, that she would love to share a bed with her adoptive family once she’s fully potty trained and can be trusted. For her safety, we recommend a similar schedule is kept for her when her people are away from the home and at night as she doesn’t know danger.
Medically, Angel seems to be in good health! She does have some signs of slight allergies, but otherwise, she’s fit as a fiddle and very active. She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, had a dental, nares widened, microchipped, heartworm tested, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Angel would do great in most types of homes, although she does not like steps. She struggles with larger staircases and it will take some time for her to get used to them. A home with a fenced yard would be ideal for Angel as she is VERY active and doesn’t like to potty on a leash. She’s a very fast runner, so she’ll need the fence to keep her contained and safe while at play; a fully fenced in yard is preferred for her ongoing safety. We also think Angel would love a family with an active lifestyle, especially one with littles for her to grow up with. Angel just wants to be anywhere and everywhere her people are and would love a mom/dad who will allow morning kisses, couch time, nap time, and cuddle time. She just really loves all people who will offer her attention. We don’t think she’d be a good candidate for going to the office, as she’s entirely too active for that (that could change with time)! She would love a part-time or full-time work-from-home or stay-at-home family member if that’s a possibility, but she’s also fine to be crated while her family is at work and school but would need a mid-day potty break. Truly, Angel is just looking for a family who will love and care for her and wants a shadow following them around 24/7. Angel thinks a furry friend would be ideal for her as she emulates other dogs’ good behavior and she gets along with all pups (even the bossy ones!). She is such an easy-going sweet girl.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Angel, please submit an adoption application for her today!!
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 cannot 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.
