Nori’s Story

Nori 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.

Nori is a very active, social, lighthearted Frenchie who loves being able to snuggle her people. Nori loves to grab a spot wherever “her people” are, so she can be as close as possible to them.  Nori enjoys spending time outside and LOVES her some Frenchie zoomies!! After running to her heart’s content outside, Nori will find a soft comfy bed to lay on, or even better; she will snuggle with one of her humans. Nori hasn’t found a human that she hasn’t adored.  She has gotten along quite well with all the furry friends she’s met, and although she hasn’t quite gotten around to actively playing with them, her foster family feels she will eventually with the right balanced and light-hearted furry brother or sister. She really is an overall content girl who goes with the flow, beats to her drum, and can make those who love her most feel just as much love in return.  She can fit right into a pack and has done very well with cohabiting with her furry foster brother.  Nori is a social butterfly that is a complete joy to have around. Although she loves all humans, she has eaten a couple of small toys in her foster home, so her forever home would be safest for her if there weren’t children’s toys that are easy for her to eat and possibly harm herself. She has done well with all furry friends, so she would like a furry brother or sister in her forever family, but being an only fur child may also be okay for her. Nori is experiencing a big transition and will need proper leadership and guidance to know what is expected in her adoptive home.  She is smart, a fast learner, and is VERY motivated by food, treats, and human praise, so we know Nori will be quick to adapt to yet another new home with the proper leadership!  Nori 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 small humans, but she needs to be kept safe around small toys and other small objects that she could ingest. Her foster family believes she would be best in a home with dog-savvy and gentle older children and another balanced furry family member if possible.  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.  

Nori is nearly perfect with her potty training. She doesn’t yet signal to go out, but she is very aware of what she’s supposed to do outside. Her foster family says she is 90% potty trained.  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.  Nori is crate-trained and has not had any accidents in her crate. She will happily go in her crate with a treat tossed to the back and will stay quiet as a mouse waiting for her family to return. She will gladly sit for a treat and go in her crate.  When her family happens to be away from home, she is safely secure in her crate.  We think since Nori 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, Nori seems to be in good health!  She does have some signs of slight allergies (managed by a daily allergy pill and would benefit from a cytopoint injection during high allergy months), but otherwise, she’s fit as a fiddle and very active. She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, had a dental, microchipped, heartworm tested, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian! 

Nori would do great in most types of homes. She has proven to be quite a champ at stairs and is very agile overall. A home with a fenced yard would be ideal for Nori; she is VERY active and requires enough space for her regular zoomies. She’s a very fast runner, so she’ll need the fence to keep her contained and safe while at play.  We also think Nori would love a family with an active lifestyle.  Nori 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 think she’d be a good candidate for going to the office, as she wants nothing more than to be with her people, and her quiet and calm demeanor would make her an excellent candidate.  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, Nori is just looking for a family who will love and care for her and wants a shadow following them around 24/7. 

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