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.


Lucy Lucy
Female - Young

My name is Lucy and I’m a pretty girl who is finally getting to be a young pup at last. My foster Mom says I’m housebroken (she appreciates that!) lovable and that I thrive on attention. When you read my story you will understand why.

You see, I was only a little over a year old when I was attacked by a bigger dog - and taken to a place called a shelter. Read more »

My Aunties agree that I’m a cuddler and a snuggler who is charming, eager to please and VERY smart! I’m also housebroken, love to go on walks (Mom says I can already walk one mile - and have a cute little wiggle when I do) and am great at riding in the car! I also love to be petted and am rendered helpless when you rub my tummy! Read more »

Hello People!

My name is Chloe and I am the sweetest little girl you'll ever meet. My foster Mom says that I'm a quiet and gentle little bichon who exudes cuteness and personifies preciousness. (I don't really know what all of those big words mean but Mom always smiles when she says that.)

I'm a great little walker and traveler -and I like to go everywhere. My absolute favorite thing to be is a pocket pup - and that's easy to do 'cause I weigh only 7 pounds soaking wet!

Don't be fooled by my age (ten) or my size (7 pounds) because I have as much energy and love to give as a young pup many times my size. I love to be held and snuggled and to give gentle kisses. I love my doggie foster brother and sisters and can walk faster and farther than all of them, even though they are much younger.

Walking is my second favorite thing to do after snuggling. Mommy says I don't just walk, I prance!. After my walks, I like to take a nice, long nap. I think napping is my third favorite thing.

You can't tell from my pictures and my happy disposition but I have some tumors on my tummy that will be removed in a few days. My family decided to take me to the shelter instead of to the doctor - but now that I'm a FurKid, it's nothing but the best care for me.

Very soon I will be good as new and this perfect little pocket pup will be looking for a forever home. So if you like to walk, snuggle and nap and have pockets and another fluff or two, please complete an application and ask for me, Chloe (spelled with a "C" not a "K").

Cuddles & Kisses,

Chloe

​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 ​
