Rosa’s Story

Rosa was surrendered to the SNAFU Rescue via a local shelter.  They wanted her medical issues to be properly addressed by a reputable rescue and for her to be placed in a loving pet home to live out her life as a cherished pet.  

Rosa is an adorably sweet, kind, loving, laid-back, and most gentle English Bulldog you can meet.  She will greet everyone that walks through the door with loving paws.  Rosa is super social (especially when pets/scratches are involved) and is fast to make friends with every single person and furry being she meets.  You can often find her under the feet and glued to her humans as they move about the home.  Rosa’s absolute favorite activity is being the pawfect shadow!  She is learning to play with toys, and how to engage her furry friends in some playtime however this is all new to her so she is slow to pick up on what to do.  Every now and again Rosa will pick up a toy and throw it up in the air and then just walk away from it.  Rosa loves a perfectly suited bulldog walk, naps, and cuddle time!  Even though Rosa is unable to jump up on furniture, she will let you know she needs assistance when there is an open lap to be had.  She is a typical chill Bulldog as she enjoys catching up on her beauty sleep.  She is quite the snuggler so be prepared to have this cutie pie glued to your side.  Rosa is a total couch potato and will curl up to keep her humans company while they tune into their favorite TV show.  Really anywhere her people are you will find Rosa! She is a velcro Bulldog thriving most when she is around those she loves and those that offer her many treats and most importantly the attention she is seeking.  Rosa is slowly learning to acclimate to new surroundings and it is important to remember that she is dealing with a big transition and as such will need a patient and understanding family.  She currently lives with two furry foster siblings.   Given her laid-back and gentle personality, she gets along with them both great!  We feel Rosa would do best in a home with a furry companion as she definitely would thrive mimicking proper dog behavior from other well-mannered dogs and would help Rosa boost her confidence. Rosa would also be a-okay as an only pet as she loves to have the spotlight all on her!   She relishes the attention of all humans and dogs but we feel she would do best in a home with children of any age that are gentle and dog savvy.  Rosa should always be supervised when she is around children to make sure she and they are kept safe. 

Rosa is currently working on potty training.  A routine, some patience, persistence, and consistency are a MUST for her continued success!  Rosa is a big copycat and emulates the behavior of the other dogs in the home.  She is 100% potty pad trained but her foster mom is trying to break that habit and continues to work with her outside.  As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able and willing to continue working on potty training. Rosa has not spent any time in a crate.  Instead, Rosa is kept in a small dog-safe room and will happily snooze the day away in her plush bed as well at bedtime.  Given Rosa prefers to be around her humans at all times and is an amazing cuddler, we feel she would love to share a bed with her adoptive family.  

Medically, Rosa seems to be in good health. She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, heartworm tested, microchipped, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!  Rosa does suffer from some ongoing blurry vision; she can see objects but they are not crystal clear.  She will need to remain on an eye ointment in perpetuity.  

Rosa would do best in a home with a fenced yard and in a home that offered very few stairs as she is still learning how to properly go up and down (she is slow and cautious due to her blurry vision).  She would be a candidate for an apartment-style or shared wall home as long as it was on the ground floor with a fenced area for her ongoing safety.  Rosa would love to go to the office with her adoptive family as she desires the attention of her humans, is very mellow, sweet and loves attention from all people.  If her new family cannot take her to the office- that is okay!  Rosa is happy sleeping the day away in her dog-safe room as long as she has a furry pal to keep her company, a comfy bed, and a blanket as long as her adoptive family can arrange a mid-day potty break for her.  Rosa is an extremely sweet, gentle, and easygoing Bulldog with so much love to give!  She would do great with a furry pal to show her the ropes of pet life, a little patience from an adoring family, and would be a lovable loyal addition to any family!  Rosa would thrive in a low-key environment, with a family that has a quiet lifestyle with no ongoing commotion around her and with a family that can offer her tons of attention!  

 If you are interested in Rosa and think you would be her perfect forever home, 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.
