Cubby Bear's Info...

I am purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Cubby Bear's Story...
Cubby Bear is an 11 year old, (12 end of Dec) 19 lb Male Bichon. He is UTD on vaccines, teeth cleaned & neutered. He is very very friendly & good with kids, cats and other dogs. He is very affectionate and get's attached to people very quickly.

His owner had him since puppyhood and was forced to give him up as her apartment she has lived in for over 10 years went pet free and her new neighbors have put in a complaint saying they want the dog out by August 15th. She is a widow with mounting medical bills to pay from her husband's long illness that makes it financially impossible for her to move anywhere else. Cubby is now being fostered in my home since August.

Cubby is realativly healthy, but has some medical issues:

He has a moderate heart murmur but it does not affect him. We have had his heart checked with ultra sound and xrays and it is normal size.

Cubby should not be over exercised or over heated (Too much exertion can cause him to faint)
This is a condition called syncope. It has only happened to him 2 times this year (both were after long walks in the heat of the summer). He comes right out of it a few seconds later and has not had one since August.

Cubby has arthritis in his back legs and hip dysplasia which sometimes makes his back legs give out. He can now go down steps with support from a harness and leash, but does not o go up them, so a home without steps would be a good fit. He is also a bit overweight and could stand to looses a few lbs.

Cubby needs to wear a belly band inside as he sometimes will lift his leg if not taken out often enough. He will definitely need one overnight.

If you can open your heart and home to this wondeful loving little boy, you will be rewarded with years of love and puppy kisses! Please fill out our application at this link: http://www.bichonrescuenj.com/bichon-frise-rescue-nnj-adoption-app.html

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cubby Bear, a East Hanover Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bichon Frise for sale in East Hanover, or seeking a Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in East Hanover.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in East Hanover already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a East Hanover breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Bichon Frise breeders who help with Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in East Hanover paves the way for another one to be saved.
