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.


Ellie Ellie
Female - Young
Adoption Pending

My name is Ellie and I’m a darling little girl of two. My foster Mom says that I’m sweet, loving, playful, active and well-behaved -- and that equals 8 pounds of adorableness!

Dad says I’m very playful – and that my favorite toy is a stuffed dragon. I love the fact that it squeaks and “crinkles.” I like to toss it in the air and throw it around. Read more »


Darby Darby
Male - Young

I’m Darby (but you can call me Dashing or Darling) and I’m a handsome and happy 14 month old Bichon who is also curious, sweet and affectionate. I’m also very attentive. When you talk to me, I cock my head and pay very close attention. (Mom has lots of things to say) and I really want to learn. It’s also important to me to please her and Dad, which is why I pay such attention to them. Read more »


Hobie Hobie
Male - Adult

My name is Hobie and I’m a handsome and happy little guy of eight (and 8 pounds soaking wet) who smiles (yes I do!), is crate trained, housebroken and loves life. Mom says I love people, love other dogs, love rides in the car and love to snuggle. She says that I AM a love (Silly Mom. That’s a lot of loves:>)) 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 »


Eli Eli

Cookie Cookie
Female - Young

I’m Cookie – and I’m a cuddly little girl who is sweet and happy and weighs only 11 pounds. I have long legs like a little colt and I like to wrap them around you and snuggle as close as I can. Mom says I’m very affectionate and like to sit on anyone’s lap and give them lots of loves. Read more »


Sampson Charlotte Sampson & Charlotte
Senior Brother & Sister

We are Sampson and Charlotte, a bonded pair of seniors who are happy, sweet and loving. I’m Sampson and I’m the man of the house. My foster mom says I’m sweet and very affectionate – a snuggler and a lover who loves to sing when I’m happy. Yes, I truly sing and enjoy doing duets, too! (So if you want to sing along, I’m your guy!) Read more »


Gibson Gibson
Male - Puppy

My name is Gibson, and I’m a darling little bichon/spaniel mix of 12 weeks and 6 whole pounds! I have a white coat, little black nose and freckles across my face, ears and legs. My ears are from my daddy’s side of the family!

I’m learning so much already, have all the basics down…walking, eating, sleeping…and I’m starting to learn new things. Read more »


Kyra Kyra
Female - Adult

My name is Kyra and I’m an affectionate and sociable bichon girl of about 6 years old.My foster Mom says I have a sweet personality, am well-behaved and attentive. She says my intelligence and energy make me a great candidate for agility training in the future - but for now I am happy just to run, play and investigate new smells and sounds. Mom says I am very interested in greeting strangers and am especially fond of the UPS lady (she always has treats for me.) When I hear her truck approach I jump for joy.


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.

​This is Theo, a little one year old cockachon whose paw has been injured in a way that is unbelievable. Apparently his former owners tied a rubber band around his front paw - then forgot about it. At some point they then dumped him at the shelter. The rubber band was so embedded in his skin that the shelter anesthetized him to remove it. They put a splint on his paw, contemplated amputating it - then listed him as rescue only.

We went to the shelter today and rescued Theo. Due to the severity of the pain he was in and the fears we had about his paw, Theo went to the Southern California Veterinary Hospital on emergency. There, Dr. Chiang found that the blood supply to Theo's paw was cut off, there was dead skin all around ​the paw, a gaping hole in the bottom of his foot and he was running a temperature.

Theo was started on anti-bioitcs, IV fluids, pain medication and had his skin cleaned and a new bandage applied. Despite the pain and soreness, Theo was a trooper and extremely sweet and gentle.

On Monday, we will transfer Theo to Stonecreek Animal Hospital where he will receive bandage changes and we will look at what needs to be done to remove the dead and dying skin. We are working hard to save his paw and will update the web site and Facebook with his progress.
