ABOUT THIS PET:
General Profile: Please fill out the adoption application at http://www.bichonrescues.com/pre-adoption-form-dog if you are interested in meeting one of our dogs.
Buddy is now in a foster home and here is what his foster mom says about him:
My foster mom says I'm versatile - that's a good thing, right? If you want to go jogging, I can keep up. If you like the dog park, I enjoy playing with the other dogs while you chat with the owners. But if you'd rather stay in and binge movies on Netflix I'm all about snuggles on the couch. I love toys - playing tug especially - oh and it's so much fun to tear into plush toys and pull their squeaky's out. But I'd never chew on your things. I know my raw hides and bones are for chewing. I am an excellent Watchdog. I will bark and let you know if anyone is near the house, but I do love meeting new people. My foster mom says I have a bad habit of jumping up on people and "we're working on that". So I'd probably be better in a house with older kids, I wouldn't mean to hurt a little one, but I might knock them over if I jump up on them. As Buddy has become more comfortable in his foster home, he is getting pushier with the other dogs, so would do best as a only dog, or with larger dogs.
Original Profile: Buddy's family moved, and the neighborhood wasn't a good fit for him as all the children running around the neighborhood upset him. His actual breed is unknown, he is just a great smooth coated mix! He is a housetrained and playful guy who likes to snuggle. He is an active player and enjoyed playing with bigger dogs, but may be too rough for dogs smaller than him. He may be too much dog for cats as well, as he enjoys chasing them. He would be fine in a home with no children or older children. If you would like to learn more about Buddy, please fill out the pre-adoption application and we will set up a time for you to meet him.
To assist you and your new pet in adjusting to life together, you will also receive an 8 week age appropriate obedience training course at For Pet's Sake Dog Training for $50 (up to $190 value). You may opt to take Puppy Kindergarten, Adult Beginners, Small Dogs Big Hearts, or Shy & Reactive Dog Class. You must start the class within 90 days of adoption for the reduced fee. For more information on the classes visit www.forpetssake.cc
All dogs are seen BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Many are in various foster homes getting extra one on one attention getting them ready for their new homes. The first step in adoption is filling out the pre-adoption application. Bichon and Little Buddies is run by volunteers who have full time jobs in addition to the hours they spend with the rescue dogs. Having an application on file assures us that the potential adopter is really interested in adopting a dog. It also assists us in placing dogs in homes where both the dog and new owners are happy. The application puts you under no obligation to adopt a dog from Bichon and Little Buddies.
Thanks for thinking about adopting your new pet!
***Other than during open hours, we do not show dogs/cats without an appointment. The first step in adoption is filling out the pre-adoption application at http://www.bichonrescues.com/pre-adoption-form-dog Please do not call until AFTER you have filled out an application.***
***We are a Wisconsin based rescue and do not ship our pets. If you are considering adoption you must be willing to drive to meet and adopt the pet, as well as bring the pet back to us if the adoption doesn't work. We adopt primarily in WI and IL, but will consider applicants in MN, IA, and MI.***
***Please do not set up an appointment to meet the animals until you are ready to take your pet home. If the meeting results in a match, you can often take the dog/cat home the same day or within a couple days if the medical care hasn't been completed. We are not able to hold pets for adopters beyond this time. Thanks for understanding.***
***While we hope all of our adoptions lead to permanent homes for the animals we place, sometimes things just don't work out. We do have a 30 day trial period. For the first 30 days, if you or Bichon and Little Buddies decide that the adoption isn't a good match for either the humans or the pet, the adoption fee will be refunded (minus a $50 administration fee). Bichon and Little Buddies also requires adopters to return the pet to us at any time that they are unable or unwilling to care for the animal anymore.***
