We’re Ready for our Forever Homes!

Here are furkids who are currently in foster care and ready to meet Forever Families. Please note, our foster moms and dads have the ‘first right of adoption’. If you are interested in fostering, please learn why this is so rewarding by visiting our Why Foster page and then complete our volunteer application.

Hello Everyone! Rosie
I’m Rosie, a beautiful Bichon girl of eight who is as sweet as I am adorable – and, did I mention, lovable? Mom says I excel in being lovable! Why I love big people and small people and I love with all my heart (and all 12 pounds of me, too!)

Dad says I’m housebroken, easy-going and smart. He says that I love all the things that Bichons love – like walks, treats, cuddles, and (drum roll please) I’m a power lap sitter! Did I mention that I’m really a cuddler at heart. If any of the family is sitting on the couch, well I just join them to cuddle and cuddle and cuddle. Mom says I get as close as possible and convince them to pet me. When they stop I paw them to keep petting or to give me a belly rub! You see, I’m smart enough to know the joys of being petted! Mom says I get an A++ in cuddles! I tell her, “Mom, I’m just practicing. And I expect to get better every day!”

I’m an easy-going, mellow and very loyal little girl. I honestly and completely LOVE PEOPLE! And I LOVE to ride in the car! I also enjoy walks, running around in the yard and “helping my people.”
In case you want to know how I can help, why I help in lots of ways. I help by watching Mom when she cooks (to make sure she has the right ingredients), help Dad when he’s working on his computer (I encourage him when the software is challenging) and I certainly help when it comes to watching TV. And my doggy foster sister needs my ‘help’ so she won’t be lonely. (Oh silly me! I’m the one who doesn’t like to be alone.)

I’m just a sweet little girl with a great big heart who is adorable, loving, easy to please and mellow! Only the most special home will be right for me ‘cause I have so much love to give. Mom says I’d be the perfect companion for just about anyone. Rosie

My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Another dog to keep me company
*Adults or a family – either is great!

Experience level:
*Had dogs as an adult

So if that sounds like you, please ask for me as I’ll be waiting to be yours!

Wags and cuddles,
Radiant, Responsive and Resilient Rosie

Hello World,Davey
My name is Davey but my Mom calls me Darling Davey ‘cause I’m such a handsome and delightful little guy! She says I’m friendly, sweet, loving, mellow and well-mannered guy of about ten, years that is, weighing a slim, trim 14 pounds. Dad says I’m the quintessential companion. I’m very tuned into my humans and I love human company. I’m happy to do anything that you are doing, whether it’s going for walks, rides in the car, cooking in the kitchen (well I don’t really cook but I’m happy to lie nearby) or read a book. And if you want to watch TV, well I’m happy to jump on the couch (I have permission to do that) and lie on the tallest pile of cushions I can find, then take a nap.

Did I mention that I’m housebroken and love to go for long walks, about as much as I love to cuddle? Well, I definitely do! I also truly enjoy being part of a pack. While I don’t play with my doggy foster siblings, having them around makes me happy and comfortable.

I love to ride in the car and am always excited to go places especially if those places include meeting people. Speaking of which, Mom says I love people more than anything (but you probably know that!) What you might not know is that while I think grownups are fun, Mom thinks I would be great with children. Even though the human kids in my foster home are called teenagers, I think they are just taller and more grown-up versions of kids! (I think they’re great too!) As long as there are people in my world, I’m happy.
Davey
My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Another pup or two
*Adults or a family with children

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

Besides being special in all the ways I’ve been described, I’m also special in one other way. I can see but my eyesight is compromised. Dad says it’s something called ‘peripheral vision’ but it doesn’t hold me back; my humans just are a bit more watchful when we’re out and about.

I’m hoping that somebody out there is looking for a loving, gentle guy like me, to “fit right in”. Do you think you and your family might have a place for me in your hearts? Do you have children or grandchildren you want to teach about unconditional love? I’m happy to help you do that!

Please help me write a happy ending to my story just as soon as you can, and ask for Davey. I’ll be waiting to snuggle my way into your heart!

Hello People, Chloe
My name is Chloe and I’m a tiny little Bichon/poodle mix of about ten (years, that is) who weighs all of about 10 pounds. Dad says I’m a calm, friendly, delicate and long-legged little girl. He says that good things come in small packages and I’m a very good “package”!

In my foster home I’m a cheerful and active companion – and I take my job very seriously. When anyone comes to the door, I wag my tail (that’s my way of saying “Hello”), welcome them in and wait for an invitation to play!

I like my doggie foster brother and would like him to play ball with me. (Unfortunately, he doesn’t!) So I play chase in the backyard by myself. It’s one of the funnest things I do. Dad says I move pretty quickly and like to not only chase the ball but will also bring it back – and wait for you to throw it again. That’s pretty impressive, don’t you think?

Dad says I’m both ball and people-oriented! I get excited when it’s time for a walk, have lots of energy and enjoy long walks of a mile or more! I also like to go on trips in the car. I stand up on the seat until we get to wherever we are going. I say that I like to look out the window so I can enjoy everything I see.

I don’t have that thing called separation anxiety, am housebroken and loving. I don’t have to be in your lap but I do enjoy being near you. In my previous home, I did not have very good nutrition but that has changed. As a result, my new hair is growing in healthy and I like my new food. I also didn’t have very good care overall. Since I’ve become a furkid I have been making up for lost time.

Even though I run and chase balls and toys all day long I have something called a ‘depth perception’ issue. There’s nothing you need to do about it, just wanted you to know. My hearing also is somewhat ‘interesting.’ Dad doesn’t know if I have selective hearing, but I definitely hear some sounds better than others (like the sound of someone making dinner in the kitchen!:)
Chloe
My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Another dog around my age would be nice
*Adults or a family with older kids

Experience level:
*Have had dogs as an adult

So if you are looking for a sweet, lively, friendly, and gentle furkid who will welcome you home with a wag and a ball, please ask for me. I’ll be smiling and waiting to meet you!

Kisses and hugs,
Carefree, Cheerful Chloe, the Ball-Chasing Champion

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,
Heavenly Heidi and Huggable Huck

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
