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.


Mandy Mandy
Female - Puppy

My name is Mandy and Mom says that I am a sweet, silly, adorable and happy little girl, all puppy love! I am eight weeks old, three pounds and all joy, a Bichon mix with love in my heart for everyone I meet. I have a white coat, big brown eyes and Mom says I always look like I’m smiling. (That’s because life is good!) I love people and give gentle puppy kisses very willingly. My human sisters say I’m amazing. (Wow, that’s nice.) I’m also good with the cat and enjoy the other furkids.

Molly Molly
Female - Puppy

My name is Molly and I’m a gentle, sweet and sometimes shy little puppy who is 8 weeks old and weighs almost three pounds. Mom says I’m a snuggler and a lover and have a very mellow personality. There is no doubt that I’m about as full of love as any little girl can be – and you can see it in my eyes. Read more »


Mia Mia
Female - Young

My name is Mia and I’m a happy, sweet and friendly little Bichon mix of about one, with creamy and apricot hair and an endearing and lopsided smile. My foster Mom says I'm 7 (working on 8) pounds of love in a very cute package. I’m just a little girl who wants to be showered with love and affection – and then return the favor. Read more »


Lulu Lulu
Female - Young

My name is Lulu and I am a tiny little girl of about 10 lbs, and about seven year old. My ‘aunties’ at BFK say I’m a little bit of heaven - a playful, happy, cuddly and dainty little sweetheart who will make you laugh -- and smile.

I am having a wonderful time with my foster family. I guess you could say I'm a social diva because I love all the people – and the furkids. Read more »


Cha Cha Cha Cha
Female - Young

My name is Cha Cha and I am a darling bichon girl of about 18 months. My foster mom says I’m happy, sweet, friendly, adorable, smart and playful (can you tell she likes me?) and that, as cute as I am, I am also very loving.

I really like hanging around with Mom and Dad and I’m a very good helper. Did you know that I help Mom when she’s working on her computer? Yes, I do! I even help her type. I sit on Mom’s lap and push the mouse with my nose and sigh contentedly. Read more »


Theo Theo
Male - Young

I’m Theo--- and I’m a fabulous one year old cockapoo with a cream colored coat, a dusting of gray and brown on my ears and tail, big black eyes and a happy smile. My ‘aunties’ at Bichon FurKids say my middle name should be ‘Mr. Terrific’ (Can you tell they like me a lot?)

My foster Mom calls me “Super Glue” because I bonded with her in about two seconds. She says I am very friendly and will approach anyone with love and affection. I give kisses freely when I meet new friends – and am very easy going. Read more »


Missy Missy
Female - Young

My name is Missy and I’ve just become a FurKid. My Aunties say that I’m 10 pounds of loving and sweetness - and nine months young! My foster Mom says I’m an adorable, active, loving, curious and mischievous little girl with LOTS of puppy exuberance!

I love to be hugged (and I hug in return) and I give kisses. I love to play fetch (with Mom and Dad) and enjoy playing with my doggy foster brothers and sisters. Read more »


Louie Stevie Louie & Stevie
Young Males

We are Louie and Stevie, a bonded pair of pups. We are the best of friends and care deeply about each other. Mom says that I, Stevie, am friendly to everyone, love to give kisses and am a real snuggle bug. (Mom says that is very endearing.) She says I also love to dance on my hind legs and snuggle in her lap. I love to be petted, listen really well, am housebroken and SMART. She says I could be called Lover Boy ‘cause when I see people I want to follow them and give them all the love in the world. Read more »


Buddy Buddy
Male - Young

My name is Buddy- and my Mom says I’m a delightful and very happy bichon boy about five or six. Buddy is a great name for me because that is just what I am and what I am good at. I am the best buddy you could ask for. I am happy, sweet and especially talented at charming my way onto your lap. Dad says I just focus my big brown eyes on you and presto! There I am. Read more »


Domino Domino
Male - Adult

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 »

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.
