Available Dogs

Here are furkids currently in foster care and ready to meet Forever Families. Since all of our pups are in loving foster homes, as we get to know their personalities and needs, we can then write their bios. If you do not see a story for a particular dog, that means he or she has just recently become a furkid. When we know more about those furkids, we will write their bios.

Since our foster moms and dads have the 'first right of adoption' many times they decide to adopt the furkid they are fostering. If you are interested in fostering (so that you have the right of first adoption), please email .

Please also remember that with bichons, it is about chemistry, more than gender! More males are born, therefore, more come in to 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 all about chemistry - chemistry with you, with other dogs and other breeds!

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


Winston Winston
Male - Young

My name is Winston and I’m a two year old Havanese sweetheart who is learning and discovering new things every day! I’m a superb cuddler and lover who is very gentle, sweet-natured, and loyal. Mom says I’m like her shadow because she knows I’ll always be right by her, looking at her with my big beautiful black eyes! And sometimes I’ll even tilt my head side to side as if to say “What’s the plan Mom?” She says I’m irresistible! Read more »


Carson Carson

My name is Carson, and I am a sweet and friendly bundle of love who is three years young and weighs about 13 pounds. According to my Mom, as I would never brag, I’m a loving and very social little guy with a great big heart - and I’m ready to give it to a forever family of my very own! Read more »


Bentley Bentley
Male - Young

I’m Bentley - a handsome and very likeable Bichon boy of about two. I have lovely white hair and beautiful brown eyes that sparkle. (Right now I am a little short on the hair, but Mom assures me that it will grow back soon - and I will be more handsome than ever!) I weigh 12 pounds, am totally housebroken (no typo there!) and already know a bunch of commands. Read more »


Trixie Trixie

Maisie Maisie
Female - Young

My name is Maisie and I’m a darling little bichon of about one who weighs only 11 pounds. My foster Mom says I’m adorable and friendly – and that I actually smile because I’m so happy! She says I’m an extremely happy-go-lucky little ball of fun. I have these long legs that remind her of a little foal when I’m running (galloping!) around outside. Mom says I’m quite the explorer (and that she checks often to see whatever cute thing I’m doing.) Read more »


Hailey Hailey
Female - Young

I'm Hailey, a sweet little girl of about three weighing a mere 9 pounds who is beyond adorable. My Mom calls me a "people person" because I'm really focused on pleasing my people. In fact, anyone who wants to hold or carry me around goes to the top of my A list. (Well, actually it’s the H list, but you get the idea!) Read more »


Kipper Kylie Kipper & Kylie
Young Male & Female

We are Kipper and Kylie, a bonded pair of bichons. Our foster parents said to tell you that I, Kipper, am three years old and a bundle of love and energy and that Kylie is 17 months old - and a precious and precocious little girl. We weigh about 14 and 12 pounds respectively, are house-broken, smart and fully grown. (We aren’t quite as big as some of our bichon cousins but Mom says good things come in small packages!) Read more »


Ellie Ellie

My name is Ellie and I’m a darling little Bichon girl of one. My foster Mom says that I’m adorable, dainty, playful, happy and affectionate -- and that equals 7.7 pounds of perfection! She says to tell you that I get along well with other furkids (even ones that are much bigger than I – and that’s almost everyone!) and that I love children. (I recently put my paws on a toddler to give him a big kiss. He loved it – and me!) Read more »


Sammy Remy Sammy & Remy
Young Males

We are Sammy and Remy, a dynamic duo of a year who met at our foster mom and dad’s home and adopted one another! We are happy, sweet and playful with each other - and our doggy foster brothers and sisters. I, Sammy, am the man of the house -- and I’m helping little Remy to understand how the big world outside of our foster home works. (I think of him as my responsibility.) Read more »


Domino Domino
Male - Young

My name is Domino and I’m a sweet and gentle lovebug. I am 15 pounds of happiness and sweetness – and a very special little guy too! You see I was born with unformed eyes – but that never kept me from being normal. I ran, played, loved and tumbled with my family. Then one day my family took me to the shelter … and left me! You see my spirit was still loving and giving – but they no longer had time for me. Read more »

We are Fancie and Teddy, two darling bonded bichons of five. Mom says that we are as happy and loving as we are adoring - that we love people, especially the ones called kids (!) and each other!

My name is Charlie and I’m a sweet and cuddly bichon boy with a big smile and an even bigger heart.

Cody Cody

Healing FurKids

Each week BFK takes in dogs that need extra medical care or who, without surgery, would be put to sleep. These pups are in loving foster homes where they are recovering. If you care to support us with a one-time donation or would like to sponsor a pup during its recovery, know that your contribution will help these little ones to once again be whole. "Help Me Heal"
