Facts about Cubby Bear

  • Breed: Bichon Frise
  • Color: White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Cubby Bear is an 11 year old, 19 lb Male Bichon. He is UTD on vaccines but not neutered. He is very very friendly & good with kids & other dogs. He is very affectionate and get's attached to people very quickly.

His owner has had him since puppyhood and is being forced to give him up as her apartment she has lived in for over 10 years is going 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 healthy, but can get occasional ear infections & recently had hurt his neck, but that is almost healed after being on Rymadil. He can now go down steps just fine, but is still afraid to go up them, so a home without a lot of steps would be a good fit. He has a very slight heart murmur that he has always had and does not bother him at all.

Cubby may need to wear a belly band inside as he sometimes will lift his leg if not taken out often enough. (We can supply you with some of these) We will also pay to have him neutered and teeth cleaned at our Vet in West Caldwell for anyone that adopts him.

If you can open your heart & 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

About Bichon Frise Rescue of Northern New Jersey

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of rescue volunteers that branched-off from a Bichon Club when we realized there was a need to find homes for unwanted Bichons. Many of these little fluffs are homeless due to their marketing as "designer/hypoallergenic" toy dogs. When the dog does not meet all of the expectations or family situations/social hardships/health issues cause dogs to be relinquished, we assist in foster and vet care, and placement into a new furever home. Senior bichons are our specialty - educating the public that these little fluffs can live to 17 or 18 years old some even older.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter. Therefore, our pets have to be met via appointment. We do attend local pet adoption events in the NJ/NY metro area.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are $150 - $400. We do have a special program "Seniors for Seniors" that promotes placement of senior bichons in furever homes (Adoption fees are from $75 - $100).

Each adopter is required to complete an adoption application (either on-line, written or faxed). We will review the application and get back to applicants within one week if your application matches an animal we fell is a good fit for you. Because we are a network of volunteers, not all applications can receive a prompt response. If you do not hear back from us within one week, please note that your application may not be appropriate for that specific dog. Check our website again. All adopters should furnish a vet reference, groomer reference (if available). A home visit will be required. We do not ship dogs. Therefore, you have to be within driving distance of Northern NJ.
