Hello Everyone,
My name is QT and I’m a darling little guy of about 3 or 4 who is (drumroll please) a real cutie. (Get it?) My foster mom says I’m just about the cutest kid on the block. I exude cuteness. I personify cuteness. I am the epitome of cuteness. That’s what she says. (Can you tell she kind of likes me?)

You would think that a little boy of only 10 lbs who is as cute as I am would have had a perfect life. Before I became a Furkid, I had a very difficult life. I lived in a house where my people would yell at me and hurt me. I proved how smart I was because I ran away- and ended up at a place called a shelter. While I was ‘on the road’ I had to fend for myself. And even at the shelter I was pretty scared. In fact I was as sad and frightened as a pup could be.

But as luck would have it, there was a very kind volunteer at that shelter who saw through my fears and decided she was going to help me. So she got me started on what she called the ‘path to happiness’. After about two weeks of teaching me that I could trust a human, she called my Aunties at Bichon FurKids. She said that she saw something special in me! Underneath all my matted hair and ‘bravado’ I was a little guy who needed to learn how to be a pup and family member and that couldn’t happen in the shelter.

So I became a furkid and boy! is life is so much better now! Mom has taught me all kinds of fun things but the most important is to trust people again! My doggy foster sister is helping me to understand how kind people can be. I watch her for ‘cues’ as to how to behave and I’m definitely learning!

Mom says to tell you that I’m very smart (aw, thanks Mom!) and that I like to communicate (and that’s a really good thing!) I have special sounds that I make that tell you what I want to do (and Mom can show you what they are!) I love to go on long walks (like a mile if you are up to it and we’ll both be very fit!) and am learning to play with toys. (I also steal them from my doggy foster brother! That’s the most fun of all!) I’m so smart that I’m even kind of a ‘tattle tale’. You see my doggy foster brother was playing in the trash so I told Mom to come and see what he was doing. I barked at him until he finally stopped, then he walked out of the room with a big piece of paper in his mouth so he got busted! (That made Mom laugh and laugh.) You see one of us (that would be me!) is trying very hard to be a good boy!

In addition to my walks, I love rides in the car (I’m a good co-pilot!) and to cuddle on your lap. I’m housebroken (and that’s no typo) and know some commands (like sit and stay) plus I am eager to learn even more! And Mom says I would do anything for a hot dog (yum).

I’m an adorable, eager, energetic, funny and loyal little guy who would love to be your one and only. I’m so cute that people always want to pick me up – however that makes me nervous so I need a ‘dog savvy’ person to be my bestest and most special friend. I also need to only live with big people (called adults) and to be adopted into an “experienced” home with someone who has the patience to help me become the pup I was always meant to be.

If you are looking for a little munchkin like me who desperately needs your love and guidance, please complete an adoption application. I can’t wait to meet you because I know that the best is yet to come.

Quintessentially Quite Special QT

About Bichon FurKids Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Bichon FurKids Rescue focuses on Bichon Frises and Bichon mixes in need of forever homes. We rescue from local shelters, as well as provide services for pets who are surrendered directly to us. Our dogs are cared for in foster homes where they learn to be socialized, housebroken and to become part of a family. Our services are highly personalized - and we work directly with our volunteers to help rescued dogs successfully transition to new homes and lives.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are all cared for in foster homes. While in foster care, their foster family is making sure they receive lots of tender loving care and have any veterinary needs taken care of. This also gives the foster family an opportunity to learn about the dog's personality, so we can better assist you in selecting a dog that will be the best fit for you and your family.

Our Adoption Process...

Prospective adopters must complete an online application available at our web site. A volunteer then conducts a telephone interview to assess which dog would be the best fit for interested adopters. Adopters will also be contacted regarding having a BFK volunteer conduct a home safety check. Once that has been completed - and the prospective adopter is approved - we will then provide adopters with the contact info for the foster home of the pet or pets they are interested in meeting. Adopters will be invited to visit the dog at its foster home. All adopters will be required to complete an adoption contract available on our web site. We accept a $350.00 donation for dogs over one year which is used to offset many of the veterinary costs. The adoption fee for our puppies is $500. Our dogs are spayed or neutered, generally microchipped and fully vaccinated when adopted. Donations beyond our adoption fee are also appreciated so that we can rescue and save more lives.
