Hello New Friends, Romeo
My name is Romeo and, as you can probably tell, I’m a lover (that’s how I got my name!) and a keeper! Besides being very handsome, I’m sweet, affectionate, loving, and devoted. I’m a little guy (weighing about 12 pounds) who is as friendly as I am sweet. My foster Mom says that’s an amazing combination in one small pup!

I love my walks, am good in the car and come when I’m called. (Dad says that’s pretty delightful.) I’m also SMART. You see I mastered the doggy door in a matter of minutes and am working very hard to keep making Mom and Dad very proud! It’s no secret that I’m an amazingly easy and happy little guy.

I enjoy the company of other dogs, rarely bark, want to please and am a major cuddlebug-in-the-making. I’m happy to just lie next to you or be in the same room and I’m not intrusive. I’m just content to know that you are nearby. Mom says to tell you also that I’m a meter-and-greeter. That means I like to meet people and make them feel comfortable.

From the time that I was a puppy until now (I’ve just turned five) I lived with a Mom and a Dad. Then things got a bit crazy and Dad went away. Mom tried hard but when she lost her job and our home, everything changed — and changed quickly. Mom had to do something called ‘a surrender’ which meant I couldn’t live with her and my doggy brother anymore. That was a very sad and scary day. BUT (and here comes the best part!) I had such a sweet and gentle personality, as well as a cute, smiling Bichon face, that my BFK Aunties decided to rescue me right away!

So now I’m a furkid looking for a forever family. If you have a loving home, another furkid like me – and are looking for a sweet, gentle, loving, friendly, and affectionate little guy, then I’m applying for the job. I’ll be your loving companion forever and ever.
RomeoMy Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Another active, playful dog around my age
*Adults or a family

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

I’m a great pup looking for love in all the right places!
Remarkably Yours,
Romeo

Hello People,Lulu
My name is Little Lulu and Mom says I’m a very sweet and delightful bichon girl of about nine. She says I am nine pounds of love and adorableness- a little girl with a darling face and even more beauty inside!

When I came to Mom’s house, it wasn’t long before she fell in love. I taught her how snuggle and cuddle. (That’s what I do best!) Then I taught her how to sleep on the back of the couch and to come when called (Oh silly me – that’s what I do!) Mom taught me to appreciate the value of a good belly rub –and that’s a very good thing!

I have a doggy foster sister to lay with – and while I enjoy her company my primary focus is on Mom. She says that I’m always happy and a bright spot in her life. While I can be a bit shy when I first get to know you I quickly warm up and haven’t found anyone I don’t like – except the yardman. (Sorry but I just don’t like all the noise he makes!)

Mom says I am really cute, sweet as sugar and as ‘big as a minute’. Then she says I’m a little cuddle bunny. Silly Mom! I’m not a bunny at all: I’m a furkid!

I’m eager to please, smart and easy to live with – and there’s always a smile on my face. Mom says I’m adorable, cute and a very special little girl!

Besides being special in all the ways I’ve been described, I’m also special in one other way. I have these special teeny tiny pills that I have to take every day so that I won’t have this thing called a seizure. Now I haven’t had one in quite a while since I now have my pills – and we hope I will not have any again. (That’s why I’m so glad I have my medicine.) If you didn’t know I had ever had one you certainly couldn’t tell – I’m just as cuddly and happy as a little girl can be.
LuluMy Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Adults only
*Another small furkid is fine but not required

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

Mom knows that there is a special family looking for a sweet and loving little girl like me and who will be able to be with me most of the time. If that sounds like you, please ask for Lulu– and I will be waiting.

Tail wags and bichon kisses,
Lovely and Loveable Lulu

Hello World, Hobie
My name is Hobie and I’m a darling, handsome and happy little bichon boy of four (and almost 13 pounds soaking wet) who smiles (yes I do!) and talks with my eyes! (Mom says I’m very communicative!) Dad says I’m a little love – and that, in turn, I love everyone! I love short people and tall people, the ones called ‘teenagers’ and those called ‘adults’ and I love other furkids, too! I simply love and adore everyone — and I’m extremely loveable.

Dad says I’m also very playful. You see I have these stuffed animals…. I like to chew on them and play tug-of-war – and I like to play chase! And be chased! Sometimes I even run around pretending someone is chasing me when they’re not. Dad says that I’m ‘exercising;’ I say I’m just having fun!

Mom says she loves the way I lay quietly and contentedly next to her while she works on her computer or stops to read a book. She says I’m a major cuddler who is a little goofy, sweet, loyal, fun, a little silly and very smart. I’m housebroken, love to walk and ride in the car, am learning commands and want to please!

It doesn’t seem possible but just a few weeks ago I lost my family and my home. They weren’t able to care for me properly. I was living outside (imagine that!) and not been groomed in a long time (as you can see from my picture.) But I’m a resilient little guy who is amazingly adaptable and filled with only love. Dad says I’m just waiting for a family who will love me as much, and as unconditionally, as I will love them!
Hobie
My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*A family with teenagers would be amazing!
*Another young active furkid to play with
* An active lifestyle

Experience level:
*Have had pups as an adult

Mom says that I would love to have at least one doggy brother or sister in my forever home. She says to tell you I’m as handsome as I am gentle… and as mellow as I am cuddly. While I seem to have it all, the one thing that I’m missing is my very own forever family who will love me and care for me always. If that sounds like you please complete our adoption application and ask for me by name.

Tail wags and cuddles,
Handsome and Huggable Hobie

Hello People,Laci
My name is Laci and I’m a dainty little girl puppy, four months old and five pounds of love with beautiful black eyes and a black nose. While I may be dainty I can ‘run with the big pups’. I’m definitely not a wallflower or just a pretty face!

I’m the only girl among my siblings and I take advantage of that too! I can be a little lady one minute, then full of mischief and fun the next! I already love to play with stuffed toys. I like to shake them then toss them at my brothers hoping that they will want to play with me.

My foster parents say I’m a darling little girl who loves other dogs and loves to snuggle. Mom says when I snuggle on your lap I like to rub my little chin on your arm or leg as I’m getting comfortable, then I give a great big sigh (that’s bigger than I am!) and smile contentedly.

Dad says that I’m playful and active (of course, Dad, I’m a puppy!) and full of fun. I’m also sweet, cuddly, quiet and aware.

LaciMy Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*An active family with kids and/or furkids please!
*A family willing to train and further socialize me
*A consistent and loving environment
*Someone who would enjoy doing agility

Experience level:
*Recent experience with a young, active pup a plus
*Previous experience as a doggy parent

Mom and Dad agree that I’m a precious little girl with a lot of potential! (Aww, thanks Mom and Dad!) I would be happy in almost any family situation and would love it if there was another active furkid or two in my forever home. If I sound like the kind of little pup that you are looking for, please fill out an application and ask for me. I’ll be waiting to snuggle and cuddle for all I’m worth (and that’s a LOT!)

Wags and hugs,
Loving, Lovable and Lithe Laci

Hi People, 400
My name is Liam and I’m an energetic, agile, curious, loving and SMART puppy of four months — eight pounds of love with a sweet personality and a happy smile. My foster parents say I’m a darling little guy who loves other dogs and loves to learn new things! I’m one of three siblings and the first one to show my brother and sister how to do things (like to sit for treats and come when they are called!)

Mom says that I’m playful and active (of course, Mom, I’m a puppy!) and that I watch everything that goes on around me. She says I wait for ‘direction’ (I think that means I wait to be told what I can do next) and that I’m already learning commands! I simply LOVE to learn and demonstrate how much I understand!

Did I mention that I’m an amazingly agile and energetic pup with beautiful hazel eyes, a pinkish nose and long legs. Dad says I could do something called ‘agility’ very easily! I love to run circles in the yard—and each time I run I try to run faster and faster. Dad says I was born to run and would make a great hiking buddy!

Liam
My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time

Hi Everybody, Leo
My name is Little Leo and I’m a little scrapper of a puppy, four months old and five pounds of love with a sweet personality and a happy smile. I enjoy playing tug of war, chasing a ball, stealing toys from my siblings and getting them to play with me.

My foster parents say I’m a darling little guy who loves other dogs and loves to learn new things! I’m one of three siblings and as SMART as a pup can be. Why I’m the first one to run outside to potty (then run back in to be praised!)

Mom says that I’m playful and active (of course, Mom, I’m a puppy!) and that I love to run! I’m already learning commands and I LOVE to learn (and show how much I understand!)

Did I mention that I’m an alert little guy who likes to cuddle – and that I have beautiful hazel eyes and a pinkish nose.

Hi People, Lindy
I’m a precious little pup named Lindy who is a dainty and delicate little girl. My foster Mom says I’m a gentle, tender, shy, loving and sensitive little fluff of only one (year that is) who tips the scale at 8.9 pounds and loves to cuddle with people of all sizes. (You’d think I might be afraid since I’m so little and everyone is so big, but I just love people with all my heart!)

Speaking of LOVE, I LOVE to be held and cuddled. Dad says I can lie quietly in someone’s lap for hours, not moving. He says I’m still and quiet as a mouse. (Silly Dad, I’m a FurKid. not a mouse!) Mom says I love to stretch out so you can rub my tummy – and there’s nothing better than a belly rub!

Other things that I LOVE are riding in the car, walking around the yard and cuddling. (Did I mention that already?) I also like playing with my doggy foster brothers and sister and am learning to sit patiently for treats.

Although I am only a year old, I have already had three puppies. Since they are almost as old as I am, I never really got to be a puppy and do ‘puppy-like’ things. Instead I’ve become an ‘observer.’ I like to watch everything from above, follow my people around and be a part of all things that are fun. Mom says I’m also a great co-pilot (in the car, that is.)

Because I’m so delicate and tiny, the little people called children may think I’m a toy, so I might be happiest and best living with bigger people. (Dad calls them teenagers and adults.)
LindyMy Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*Adults only or adults with older children
*No other furkids are required–as I would like to be the center of attention

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

Right now I’m devoted to my foster Mom and Dad but I’m just practicing for my forever Mom and Dad. There is no doubt that I’m a gentle, affectionate, and winsome little girl who is a devoted and loving companion. And, unlike many other FurKids, I would be happy to be the only one in a home, as I have so much love to give and want to be the center of someone’s world.

So if you are looking for a sweet, cuddly girly-girl who would love to be your constant companion, please look no further. Mom says to ask for Lindy which stands for Lovable, Incredible, Nimble, Delicate and Yummy!

Sending lots of love,
Little, Ladylike and Lovely Lindy

Hi People, Mandi
I’m Mandi, a darling little bichon mix of two weighing a whopping 11 pounds, full of fun, energy and, according to Mom, as cute as I can be! Mom calls me her “love bug,” but I’m not a bug at all silly Mom, just a sweet (and very social) little furkid!

My teenage human sisters want you to know that I absolutely love people — and like to be wherever they are. I follow them around the house and try to do whatever they are doing. Mom says I jump at their feet and twirl around asking them to play with me. I also prance around the house and, in fact, made myself right at home the minute I arrived! (Mom says that shows that I’m adaptable and confident.)

Dad says I’m an incredibly sweet, friendly, quiet, curious and cuddly little girl who LOVES attention! Did I mention that I’m housebroken, love to take walks and rides in the car (I usually fall asleep!) and follow my person wherever he or she goes (so I’m rarely alone!)

I’m known for liking to hop into your lap – and when I do I give lots of kisses! At the end of a busy day, I sleep quietly at the foot of the Big People’s bed, snoring quietly to show how content I truly am!
Mandi
My Ideal Home:
*Someone home most of the time
*A family with teenage girls would be amazing!
*No other furkids are required–as I like to be the center of attention

Experience level:
*Recent experience with a young, active pup a plus

Mom thinks that I would fit in well in just about any family. If I sound like the girl you are looking for, please complete an application and ask for me. I’ll be waiting to meet you!

Cuddles and hugs,
Magnificent and Magical Mandi

Hello World, Tipper

I’m Tipper the Terrific, a darling Bichon Havanese of about three (years, that is) who weighs about 14 pounds soaking wet. My foster mom says that good things come in smallish packages and I’m an incredibly cute ‘package.’ (Mom also says I am the sweetest little guy you could ever hope to meet.) Speaking of meeting…I like to meet new people and especially love to meet other dogs. Give me an opportunity to play with another pup and I’m one happy little guy!

I’m a loving, mindful, adaptable, well- mannered and friendly pup who is housebroken and does not mark! I’m eager to learn what is expected of me and to show you that I can master any requests. I already know a few commands and have truly mastered ‘sit’ (because I then get treats when I do that!) Patience is one of my best traits!

I’m basically just happy to be in a nice home where people are good to me and I have doggy foster sisters I can play with!

I love to go on walks and rides in the car (Mom says I’d prefer driving but since I’m not old enough I’m learning to sit nicely) and I love to be petted and have my belly rubbed. (I’m teaching the Mom how to do that and she’s learning really well!)

My BFK Aunties say that I love listening to everyone talk and I think I understand most of what is being said. I may not be able to talk “exactly” — but I do my best to communicate and am very expressive. And I smile a lot!
My Ideal Home:
*Someone who is home most of the time
*People/family who are active
*Another active, playful dog around my age

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

So if you are looking for a sweetheart of a guy who is cute, friendly, trusting and loving then look no further. Just complete our application– and let’s get together.

Hope to meet you soon.

Tail wags and more,
Tipper the Terrific
