Hi People,Goalie
My name is Goalie but you can call me Gorgeous if you’d like, as Mom says that really fits me. I’m an active and energetic, sweet, good-natured and gentle pup of about six, weighing a mere 13 pounds, who loves people and gets along with everyone. I’m a confident and happy little guy whose tail wags almost constantly, loves being petted and is grateful to be a FurKid.

As you can see I’m rather adorable (not bragging – that’s just what people tell me!), like to go for rides in the car (I’m quiet and good) enjoy sunbathing in the yard and curling up on your lap. I’ve worked hard to become housebroken – and Mom says that I’ve mastered that, as well. Dad says I’m very good-natured, easy and loving – and that I’m looking to become someone’s best friend. (Well, I must admit that I am!)

My doggy foster siblings are fun to hang out with, as are Mom and Dad. Although I have both doggy foster sisters and a doggy foster brother, I’m the kind of pup who does really well being with people. I would like to play with my doggy foster brother —but he has no interest in me. I do like going to the dog park where I can usually find someone to play with. Mom says she thinks I’m a bit of a ‘ladies man’ and that I’m adaptive and well-adjusted.

I recently had something called a “dental” (Boy! am I glad that’s over) and was neutered so now I’m ready for my Forever Home!

Goalie
My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Adults or a family
* Possibly another FurKid

Experience level:
* Had dogs as an adult
*Recent/current dog experience a plus

If you are looking for a new member of the family who is gregarious, groovy and gentlemanly, then I’m applying for the job. Please ask for me!

Tail wags and Bichon Waves,
Good natured, Good looking and Grateful Goalie

Hi People! Brody
My name is Brody and I’m about eight years old. I’m white and apricot with some cream markings. My Mom thinks I might be a “malti-peke with maybe a little shih tzu thrown in. Malti-peke’s a funny word but it makes sense if you think maltese and pekinese mix! (It also makes me want to say, “Gesundheit!”)

Mom says a great word to describe me would be “gentle.” I have very nice manners, am housebroken and kind of quiet. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m still a guy who loves to play. I will get my tennis ball and toss it in the air – or bat it to the ground. I also love to play this game called “Fetch” (if you would be so kind as to throw one for me, that is!) That’s my favoritest game in the world!

Not to brag or anything, but Mom says to tell you that I’m really smart too. She was impressed that I learned to come when you call my name —and am learning a few other commands too! And you know what else I learned? If I sit and wait I get a treat! I looooooove treats!

As much as I like to play and go for walks, and rides in the car (I really enjoy both long walks and rides in the car!) I’d give it all up to just cuddle with my people. That’s my favorite activity of all! I come up and lay my head on Mom’s knee, or just fall asleep next to her. And I love to be snuggled. At night, and sometimes during the day, I go into my own crate and fall asleep on my soft little bed.

My “rescue story” is an all-too-common one. My family brought me and my bichon brother to the shelter. My BFK Aunties were standing in line to get us both but the shelter let someone else adopt my brother! That left me alone and very sad, as well as pretty scared.

Fortunately, I got to leave the shelter and go to a foster home with other furkids. (There are also those funny little creatures called ‘cats’ in my foster home. I just ignore them.) That made me feel a lot better!

BrodyMy Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Another playful dog around my age
*Kids over 7

Experience level:
*Had dogs as an adult
*Recent/current dog experience a plus

Mom describes me as a “sweet, loving, gentle, obedient and faithful companion.” She thinks I’d be a great asset to just about anyone. As for me, I’d just like to be with somebody who wants to take walks, rides in the car and (drumroll please) to snuggle. So if that sounds like you, please complete our application and ask for me – I’m Brody and I’ll be waiting!

Love and Hugs,
The One-and-Only-Ball Playing, Blissful and Bewitching Brody

Hello Everybody,Indy
My name is Indescribably Adorable Indy, at least that’s what everyone who meets me says! I’m a loving, friendly, gentle and pretty mellow pup of six (years, that is!) I use the doggy door, am housebroken, like to ride in the car and am not a barker! Sound good? Please read on!

Like many of my bichon ‘brethren’ I’m very sweet, smart and loyal. I love ‘my people’ yet am independent as well. Mom says that’s why I’m called Indy (because I have some ‘independence’ in my genes.) I love my space and am crate trained but I also like to cuddle as close to my people as I can. Although I am crate trained, I’d really love to sleep in the Big People’s Bed in my forever home (as I’m a very good pup.)

My BFK Aunties say I am very gentle and loving, (That’s a wonderful combination) a real gentleman and an easy boy to have around — as I get along with just about anyone and everyone. I know several commands already and Mom says I’m a ‘quick study’ so I can learn even more! Toys are not ‘my thing’ but people and other furkids certainly are. I enjoy playing with my doggy foster brothers in the yard and have an adorable prance to my walk! (Mom doesn’t get to walk me as often as I’d like so I’m hoping that I’ll get to do more of that in my forever home.)
Indy
My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Another active, playful dog or two
*Adults and/or with kids over 10

Experience level:
*Have had dogs as an adult
*Recent/current dog experience a plus

As you can see from my picture, I’m a handsome bichon boy! So if you are looking for a great little companion who loves to be with you but is not intrusive, enjoys rides in the car and prancing down the street, let me apply for the job!

Tail wags and snuggles,
Incomparable, Irresistible Indy

Hi People! Savannah
We’re Amiable, Adorable Annie and Striking, Smiling Savannah —and we are delighted to meet you! We are a bonded pair, ages 13 and 12, who enjoy each other’s company yet have very different personalities.

I, Savannah, am a bit of a character! I love to jump on the sofa like a gazelle and recline rather regally on the top of the cushions. That allows me to survey my “domain” and I don’t miss a thing!

I also like to follow you around from room to room and am ALWAYS raring to go on a walk. (I love my walks so much in fact that my Mom takes me out with each of my doggie foster brothers and sisters so I get three additional walks each day! While I’m a great walking companion I’m also perfectly happy to snooze on the sofa with you (or chase birds or look for lizards in the garden). Oh and being the beautiful bichon that I am, I absolutely adore being brushed and groomed!

AnnieMy sister Annie is a little sweetie pie, always looking up at you adoringly with her sweet little face and her big brown eyes. Dad says she is such a well-mannered, good little girl — and that likes nothing better than to curl up in a comfy spot when you are watching TV, reading or working on your computer. She is completely housebroken and rarely barks. And, like me, Annie is happy to go on walks and loves sunbathing too!

We are the best of friends and care deeply about each other. We recently became furkids when our human Dad went to the hospital and was not allowed to come home. He had to move to a place called Oregon where he could live with his sister and be on a list for something called a ‘heart transplant.’ That made us very sad because he was a good man with a great heart (for us dogs, that is, for sure!) So we became FurKids! We have rebounded from that sad experience and appreciate the loving care we are receiving from our foster parents.

Annie & SavannahMom says that I’m a darling combination of sweet and sassy, as well as beautiful, calm and mellow. Dad says that Annie is adorable, sweet, charming, calm and quiet. We are both happy, housebroken pups who are in good health, well-groomed and looking for a Forever Family. We want nothing more than a home where we can love and be loved and we would be happy than to meet you and show you what we’re all about!

In the meantime, we will continue to enjoy our foster family and the life of a FurKid.

Tail wags and kisses,
Adorable Amiable Annie and Striking, Sassy Savannah

Hello Everyone! Huck
We are Heavenly Heidi and Huggable Huck —and we are quite the pair! Our story is both heartwarming and (a bit) heartbreaking but we are two very deserving bichons.

I, Huck, am the somewhat older brother (by a few minutes, that is) and I’m bigger than Heidi, my ‘wee little sister’. I’m about 18 pounds and she tips the scale at 12 pounds. We have been together since we were born, are a very young 13 years of age and the best of friends. There is no doubt that we love and appreciate one another.

Heidi is more outgoing and social than I am. I’m already well known for being a lover and a couch potato. Dad says I’m not interested in playing with balls or stuffed toys but love to sunbathe in the yard —or cuddle in a lap. Mom says I’m just a happy and mellow guy with a sweet personality.

HuckNow about Heidi… Well, she’s the smiling, kissy and more curious part of our pair. (Dad says bichons are known for that.) Heidi looks like a puppy (still), likes to play hide-and-seek and loves attention. She also loves to be with her people and to explore her surroundings. While Heidi loves to be near me she will also play with our doggie foster brothers. Mom says Heidi is the best reading and TV watching companion as she curls up in a little ball and doesn’t want to be left out.

We are the best of friends and care deeply about each other. We recently became furkids when our human Dad went to the hospital and was not allowed to come home. He had to move to a place called Oregon where he could live with his sister and be on a list for something called a ‘heart transplant.’ That made us very sad because he was a good man with a great heart (for us dogs, that is, for sure!) So we became FurKids! We have rebounded from that sad experience and appreciate the loving care we are receiving from our foster parents.

HuckMom says we are inseparable and happiest when together. I, Huck, am more mellow and quiet, love my humans and get along with the other pups. I also have this very serious job called ‘protecting Heidi’. I take my responsibility very seriously, too. We love meandering around the yard, riding in the car, enjoy people and get along well with other dogs. We are housebroken, well- behaved and eager to please. There is no doubt that we are snuggle bunnies who rarely bark and are loving, adorable bichons.

Heidi and I are in good health, well-groomed and looking for a Forever Family. We want nothing more than a home where we can love and be loved and we would be happy than to meet you and show you what we’re all about! In the meantime, we will continue to enjoy our foster family and the life of a FurKid.

Tail wags and doggy kisses,

Hi Everyone, Luna
My name is Luna and I’m a lithe, lovable and attentive little bichon girl of three, weighing only 12 pounds. I guess you could say that I’m a ‘slip of a girl’ or a ‘wee little girl’ … and you should also know that I’m happy, sweet and a very playful little bichon. Speaking of happy, Mom says that the way that I show I’m happy is that my entire body wags back and forth. She says that’s the Luna version of a Bichon wave – and it is as cute as it can be!

Dad says I get along well with everyone – both two and four-legged types, human and animal. I’m a little shy and cautious when I first meet someone but quickly relax and become friends. My doggy foster brother and sister, however, are a bit older and not very playful. I’m respectful of them but would truly like to have a younger pup like myself to play with.

I do really well riding in the car and going on walks. I’m learning commands, listen REALLY well (Thanks, Mom, for saying that!) and do what I’m asked to do. It’s obvious that I want to please!
Luna
My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Another active, playful dog around my age
* Adults and/or a family with kids over 7

Experience level:
*Had dogs as an adult
*Recent/current dog experience a plus

I’m smart, lovable and sweet– and really just love life! Mom and Dad know that there is a special family looking for an affectionate and playful little girl like me! I hope you will complete an application so we can meet. I’d love to be yours. Please ask for Luna. I will be waiting.

Hi People!Abbie
My name is Adorable Abbie and I do my best to live up to that each and every day! Mom says I’m a sweet, loving and mellow bichon girl of about 12 (but act like I’m half that age!), weighing about 17 pounds, and that I’m just as affectionate as I can be. (You see I have already worked my charm on her – and I wasn’t even trying very hard!)

When I came to Mom’s house, she said she was amazed at how easy-going and friendly I am. I like to play with my toys, show my mastery of some commands, sleep through the night (with a gentle snore sometimes) and do not have ‘separation anxiety.’ I’m as good with my human 13-year-old ‘brother’ as I am with my human six-year-old ‘sister.’ We play together all the time. Tug-of-war and chase are my two favorites so far. Mom says it’s easy to see how very easy it is to love me!

Dad says to tell you that I’m sweet, alert and affectionate. I walk gently on a leash, get along well with other dogs, know my name, rarely bark at strangers, am friendly and also intuitive. Oh and did I mention that I’m housebroken? When I want to go potty I go to the door and scratch to go out. If Mom isn’t paying attention, I just tap her leg and she knows then to open the door. (My family says that shows how smart I am!)

I like my walks and LOVE my rides in the car! I like to sit in my bed on the car seat and occasionally look out the window. Whether you are going for a short ride or a long one, I’m happy to go along. I have a lot of spirit and work diligently on being the bestest companion.
Abbie
My Ideal Home:
* Someone home most of the time
* A loving home
* People who like to go places—and also like to stay home and cuddle

Experience level:
*Had dogs as an adult
*Recent/current dog experience

Mom says I am eager to please, mellow, very smart and a master cuddle bug. I love to snuggle in my doggy bed or on the couch. My night time vision isn’t what it used to be but I do quite well in general.

What I really need now is a forever family to call my own. Will you be the one for me? If you think you are, please complete our application so we can meet.

Bichon waves and wags,

Greetings everyone! Casey
I’m Casey and I’m a handsome bichon mix of 5 (years, that is), weighing 15 pounds and with quite a story to tell! In the story, our hero (that’s me) gets lost (and is hit by a car) then a good Samaritan rescues him.

Our hero is a very lucky guy because the nice people at Bichon FurKids decide to help our hero (yes, that’s me!) recover from his injuries. Now, you can probably guess the next part of the story. I got to go to a wonderful foster home where I’ve been loved and cared for and am now fully recovered! Hooray!

Although I had a difficult start, my foster Mom says I have a cheerful outlook on life. I’m friendly with other dogs and even those finicky creatures called cats, am cuddly, know the doggy door and am learning to be fully housebroken. And the very best part is that I now can play! Yay! Why I’ll play with just about anyone – small dogs, big dgs, puppies and even BIG puppies. I’m just as happy as I can be when I can play with another pup!

Mom says I have the cutest way of humming (I call it talking) and I don’t have that thing that a lot of bichons have called separation anxiety. I’m always happy to see Mom when she comes home. (That makes her smile, which makes me very happy, too!) I also like my walks (and can walk quite far!) and I am totally ‘chill’ in the car.

While I’m shy at first with a lot of men, if they are gentle with me I come around. A gentle man will definitely win me over as Mom’s male friends have seen. Of course, a home with at least one lady (and another pup) would be my ‘cup of tea.’
Casey
My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Another dog or two who like to play and want canine companionship
*Ok with cats
*Kids over 10

Experience level:
*Had dogs as an adult
*Recent/current dog experience

So if you’re interested in a great guy who is filled with promise, likes to cuddle and greets every pup, like an old friend well then you will definitely be interested in meeting me- because I’m all of those things!! I promise to be the very best companion you could ever hope for and you can help me write the ending of the story where the hero rides off into the sunset with a love song playing in the background.)

Bichon kisses and wags,
Cute, Calm and Capable Casey
