Available Dogs

Here are FurKids currently in foster care and ready to meet their Forever Families. All of our pups are in loving foster homes. After we get to know their personalities and needs, we then write their bios. If you do not see a story about a particular dog, that means he or she has just recently become a FurKid. When we know more about them, we will write their bios. Because our foster moms and dads have the ‘first right of adoption’, they often decide to adopt the FurKid they are fostering.

An important thing to note is that bios are written from the perspective of our pups and what they need. You will want to read the bio all the way through. If it says that a pup needs a home with another active FurKid, that is (only) what we will accept. If the bio says children over 7 or adults only, that is also what we are looking for. Based on the volume of applications we receive, we are not able to respond to adopters who do not meet the dog’s ideal criteria. If you do not hear back from us, it is because you do not meet the criteria.

Please also remember that with bichons, it is about chemistry, more than gender! More males are born, therefore, more come into rescue. There are probably as many dominant females as there are submissive males. Most males are not leg lifters (many still squat like females) and belly bands take care of that challenge quickly and easily. The bigger challenge we have is that many bichons need another bichon or other dog, as well as human companions. Most of our furkids cannot be ‘only children.’ When you read the bios you will see which dogs can live with only human companions.

With Bichons, it is the chemistry with you, other dogs and other breeds that guides us! Because we want all of our FurKids to become the best representatives of bichons that they can be, we have high standards for them. That includes working with trainers (while in foster care and after being adopted) and experiencing lots of socialization. Many FurKids go on to become service dogs, both emotional support and therapy dogs.

It is important for our puppies to be able to emulate and learn from other dogs. As a result, we do not adopt puppies to homes where there is no other dog. We do, however, adopt siblings from a litter together. All puppy adopters are asked to do training and socialization with their FurKids with the goal of helping them to be amazing little canine companions.

Please check back for new bios, photos and furkid information! We update the web site several times each week.

Please read the ENTIRE bio to make sure the dog you are interested in is the right fit. When we say “needs another furkid”, that’s not negotiable. Most of our pups do!

My name is CiCi and I’m a beautiful little pup with big brown eyes that will melt your heart and a sweet disposition.
