Martini’s Story

Martini 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.

Martini is a sweet, rambunctious young Frenchie girl.  She is such a wild woman; her activity is endless until she completely runs out of gas.  She wants all the love and will kiss her beloved humans nonstop if you let her!  Martini is quick to warm up to new people and environments, as long as she is with her trusted people.  Her happy place is in the presence of her people and around her furry friends!  She will partake in all the play her foster siblings will let her. She is such a sweet young pup with lots of love to give and get!  Martini is a cuddle bug who always wants to touch when she naps (lest you might sneak away from her!)  She welcomes all the attention she can get; pets, scratches, and gentle squeezes.  She is a high-energy Frenchie girl and can often be found chewing on her bones, playing with her toys, or looking for a human or dog to engage her in play.  She is still learning what is and is not an appropriate dog-approved toy; she will often sneak the kid’s toys thinking they are for her enjoyment.  Martini has developed a great disposition and will share her prized possessions with another furry creature or human. Once Martini is out of energy, she will look to grab a bone and nibble away to her heart’s content.  Because Martini is mostly all gas and no brakes, she will need a family who is willing to spend extra time with her, offer her ongoing patience, and introduce her slowly to new things to build her confidence and direct her to learn appropriate dog behaviors.  Martini currently lives with several furry foster siblings and will play with them all she can!  She does want all the attention and can be a bit of an attention hog but luckily for Martini, her foster family has several children so many hands are always available to offer her the much desired attention she requests.  Social cues are something that most young dogs need help with and Martini could use a little work in that department. Overall, Martini loves her furry friends and finds comfort in their presence. Martini is experiencing a big change and because of that, she needs consistent leadership, and positive reinforcement to help her to learn proper dog manners in her adoptive home.  She seems to get along well with every human she meets IMMEDIATELY!  Martini has yet to meet a stranger and can easily be won over with scratches and kisses.  Due to her high energy, and sweet, yet persistent disposition, we think she would do best in a home that has other dogs for her to play with and children of any age who have been around dogs before.  Slow introductions and supervision around children are a must to be sure they and she are kept safe.  She is slowly learning manners and we believe should benefit from a balanced, active fur buddy in her adoptive home. 

Martini’s foster family happily reports she is making great strides in potty training when kept on a consistent schedule and when taken out with the other resident dogs.  She will greatly benefit from a signal for potty.  Her adoptive family must be willing to continue to keep her on a regular and consistent schedule to help with potty training in her new home.  Martini is completely crate-trained but does not care for her crate. She will cry while crated and with time we believe she can be trusted in a small dog-safe space to ease her anxiety.   For her safety, we recommend a similar crating arrangement when her people happen to be away from the home.  She does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of her inside the home.  Martini would enjoy the comfort of the human bed at night and would prefer to cuddle up next to her human or the resident dog in a comfy dog bed.  

 Medically, Martini seems to be in great health!  She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested, microchipped, and has been given the okay to adopt by our veterinarian. Martini does suffer from those pesky Frenchie allergies; they are managed with a daily allergy pill and cytopoint injections during high allergy months. 

Martini would be happiest in a house with a fenced yard (as opposed to a multiple-floor, shared-walled apartment-style dwelling with no yard) due to her high energy and because she is still potty training. Plus, she needs a wide open space to help her burn off all the puppy energy (and run those Frenchie zoomies)! Martini has mastered the stairs and would do well in a home that has them or doesn’t. Ideally, Martini is searching for a family that has a lot of time to devote to a young dog who is working on her manners. She is crate trained (again does not like it) and would much rather have a dedicated family that has the time for her needs and desires. Again, Martini is still learning the ways of pet life, and learning to trust, and needs an engaged family to help build her confidence.  Once Martini is fully trained we believe she would love to go to the office with her new family since this sweet girl loves to always be around her people and is very content on the lap or bed of anyone willing to share it!  You can’t take her to the office- that’s okay!  She will happily sleep part of the day away in her bed with his comfy blanket and a furry pal as long as her people can arrange a mid-day potty break for her.  She would love a family that can offer her companionship, unlimited pets/scratchies, and an active home to help work off her energy.  Martini would adore an active family that can include her in all their outdoor adventures; she does great in the car!  She has made tremendous daily improvements and just needs a little extra patience as she learns how to “pet”. Martini needs a playmate or a soulmate (furry or human).  She adores dogs and humans alike and prefers not to be alone. Martini is a sweetheart who can adjust to any situation.  She will smother you with kisses and melt into the arms of anyone holding her. Martini is wild and crazy and can be calm and collected when the time is right. This girl has a lot of love inside her and will make a loyal and loving companion.  

If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Martini, 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.
