Tommie and Teddie were picked up as strays by a local animal control. They were so scared that they 'didn't show well' so rescue was called. These two young boys were totally afraid and distrustful of people. They acted like typical puppy mill dogs -- no human interaction, no trust of humans, they were almost feral.
With time, they have come around. They love to be pet and to sit in the laps of their foster family,They are still very shy and may always be shy. Their house training is a work in progress.
They MUST have a fenced yard and they will not be placed with other pets in the family. They will only be placed together as they are totally bonded and dependent on each other.
ADOPTION RESTRICTIONS, PLEASE READ.
Potential adopters must live within 100 miles of Suffolk, VA and must submit an online application (SEE BELOW)
We do not adopt to families with children under the age of 8. We do not ship dogs.
Bichons require a great deal of love and attention in order to thrive. Because of their extreme people dependence and their inherent house training difficulties, we place only in homes where there is an adult home during the day.
ADOPTION FEE $500 for the pair
