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.


Kyra Kyra
Female - Adult

My name is Kyra and I’m an affectionate and sociable bichon girl of about 6 years old. You might not know it by looking at me but I am a warrior; You see I was attacked by a coyote and I escaped. I’m perfectly healthy, but my BFK Aunties say I have to stay in something called, “quarantine”. Well, it turns out it’s not a place to stay at all! It just means I have to keep away from other animals for a while, cuz the law says so. I don’t mind, though, cause I love to snuggle and play with people. Read more »
