Korg’s Story

Korg came into SNAFU Rescue via a commercial breeder release.  His breeder wanted him to be placed in a loving home to live the rest of his life as a cherished pet.

When Korg first arrived at the rescue he was shy and scared of most things.  He continues to struggle with confidence, especially with new things and new people. He does show curiosity but continues to be timid and requires patience and encouragement.  Once trust is earned though, Korg is quick to latch on and make a new best friend with his beloved humans.  Korg truly is a Velcro puppy, so be ready for a 24/7 shadow and stage 5 clinger, especially if you’re willing to scratch his neck and belly while you snuggle!  His overall shy personality around new people and in new situations is so cute and he is making improvements and gaining more and more confidence daily; Korg needs some grace and patience.  Korg is a smart, silly, active, energetic, playful Frenchie boy who loves extra play sessions with his furry friends and nap time.  He is most comfortable around his furry friends, literally following his foster brother around EVERYWHERE. Korg finds great comfort in their presence, whether that’s playing with them, or settling in for a comfy sleep session.  You always know where Korg is as he is pretty much glued to his resident foster brother.  All of his timidness is gone when he is playing, wrestling, or napping with them.  You can often find Korg following his furry friends all around the fenced-in yard and exploring all the new smells of the outdoors. When he isn’t burning off some energy outside, you can find him grabbing his favorite nylabone or antler and laying down for a quiet chew session with his foster siblings.  Korg has no resource guarding, although he has been known to grab and gather all the toys around him. After a play session, Korg will find a soft comfy bed to lay on to grab a much-needed nap and snuggle up as close as he can get to his fur brother.  Again, he is shy around new people and new places; needing extra time to acclimate.  Korg is quite smart, and curious, and will take time to trust.  He needs a little extra patience as he is still learning how to “dog” and will require some training in his adoptive home to help him gain some confidence.  As mentioned, he currently lives with a furry foster sibling.  Korg made fast friends with him and is thriving in learning what it is like to be a pet!  He matches well with dogs of any shape/size/gender as long as they can match his energy level and expect to have an instant best friend!  He is experiencing a big transition and will need leadership, and positive correction to help him learn proper dog behavior, learn proper dog manners, and know what is expected in his adoptive home.  He is extremely smart, a fast learner, and wants to please his humans.  Korg seems to get along well with every human he meets, even children, although he is still skittish at first.  Because of this and his overall shy personality, his foster family believes he would be best in a home with dog-savvy, gentle, children 5 years or older, in a home with other balanced furry members (THIS IS A MUST FOR KORG).  Korg finds comfort around other dogs and we believe he would thrive in a home with other pets as he continues to learn to “dog” and would benefit from another furry friend to learn the ropes from.  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 he and they are kept safe.  

Korg is still working on potty training.  He is emulating the other dogs by going outside and mimicking their outdoor bathroom habits.  At times he can be distracted, so he may need to be reminded to go potty before heading back inside. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with him, offering him a consistent schedule and working with him on a signal for potty. Korg is crate trained, although he much prefers to be crated with a furry friend, as that seems to help him with his separation anxiety and gives him confidence that everything will be okay. Korg remains accident-free at night, so he earned the privilege of sleeping in a human bed!  We know that he would love to continue to share his adoptive family’s bed at night, especially if his fur brother or sister is also in bed to snuggle with too.  For his safety, we recommend a similar crating/sleeping schedule be kept for him as he doesn’t know danger.

Medically, Korg seems to be in great health!  He has been neutered, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, microchipped, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian! He does have a grade 2 luxating patella, and although he doesn’t show any signs of any issues it is something that should be watched/monitored.  

Korg would do best in a home with a fenced-in yard due to his explorative nature, his skittish nature around anything new, his love for the outdoors, and because he could run if startled (opposed to a multiple-floor apartment-style dwelling with no yard).  Korg is still mastering the potty-training game but is showing great improvement. He can do stairs but does need a little encouragement at times. With continued work on confidence, a home with multiple levels would be okay for him.  He needs exercise to burn that puppy energy and would love a large yard to run and play with his furry friends.  Since Korg is still learning to trust, and skittish around new people and places, and is still working on potty training we don’t feel an office atmosphere would be good for him quite yet (hopefully soon!).  Korg would much prefer a part-time stay-at-home or work-from-home parent that could spend time with him offering a stable environment to learn to trust.  Ultimately Korg is looking for an extremely patient, low-key, and understanding family that can continue to work with him on his puppy tendencies, a family that is active and can include him in many of their weekly activities, and one with at least one other balanced dog to help him learn the joys of pet life and one with tons of comfy spots to napping.  He is such an amazing goofy, playful boy and has come so far already and just needs a little extra attention to learn the ways of being a loved and cherished pet.  Anyone that meets Korg falls head-over-paws for his beautiful and sweet little face, so be prepared for lots of extra attention when out and about with this handsome guy.  

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