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.

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.

H​ello Everyone,

My name is Dani - and I'm a delicate and darling little girl who has just become a FurKid. Like Gatsby, I also had an 'incident' with a car - and I am healing, slowly, from my injuries. I'm only two years old and weigh a scant 9 pounds and am so very grateful to be out of the shelter.

I will be looking for a quiet foster home where I can relax and complete my recovery. Once I'm healed, I'll be as good as new!

If you are interested in fostering, please complete our application at www.bichonfurkids.org/volunteer.

Thanks a lot!

Dainty and Delicate Dani​


​Hi World,

My name is Gatsby and I'm an adorable one year old who had an incident, I mean an accident, with this big thing called a 'car.' The car was a lot faster than I was (and I'm pretty fast) so I ended up with a broken tibia and something called hip dysplasia.

I had my surgery two weeks ago (Dr. MacDonald was wonderful) and I'm getting better every day. I still have a ways to go before I can run and play but, in time, I'll be back to my normal self! In the meantime I'm just a happy, sweet little guy looking for love and a forever family.

All the best,

Gorgeous Gatsby ​

​Hi People,

My name is Teddy and I'm a little guy who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. You see my former owners failed to protect me from those big things called 'cars' and I was hit. I've been a good boy and am waiting for surgery to correct my broken 'parts' this week. I'll keep you posted as to how I'm doing​ in a few days - and will be looking for a foster home at the end of the week - a quiet home where I can recover and get back to a happy, normal life.

If you want to donate to my surgery, I'd be very grateful. Until then, please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

Teddy​
