Hi People,
My name is Sassy and my foster Mom says that I’m the cutest bichon ever. I’m a delicate and dainty girl weighing in at 11 ½ pounds and only five years old (or is that young?) I’m also quite the entertainer! I do this “twirly dance” on my hind legs when I want something which, according to both Mom and Dad, is completely adorable. I also love to be picked up and cuddled (isn’t that what laps are for?) anytime you are seated.
I am a girly girl who LOVES being groomed! (I start “melting” when you brush my head and neck until I’m practically doing a “headstand”) then I flop over so you can brush my chest! Although I’m dainty and delicate, love being groomed and cuddles, I’m not a couch potato! I have a BIG personality and my antics will keep you laughing all day long! For example, Mom and Dad have these big dogs (I think I’m the same size as they are!) so they have big dogs toys (some of which are almost as big as I am.) No matter! I shake them and shake them until the stuffing is flying everywhere. And I smile all the while, too!

When I get excited about something (like a walk, which I love to do!) I do these cute little lady-like sneezes, but no worries: our vet says there is nothing the matter with me – it’s just the way I express myself. And I easily walk for a mile which is how I keep so trim and adorable. I am a great rider (in the car, that is) and enjoy watching the world go by. Why, I’m even adorable when I go potty outside (since I’m a very good girl and I’m housebroken!) I do a little hand-stand when I go potty. Dad thinks it’s hilarious. (And boy do I have good balance!)

I’ll bet you think I sound special and indeed I am! I’m also on a special food (which I like a lot) because I had these things called ‘stones’. Well, they are all gone now and eating this food is what I do to prevent them from coming back. (And no thank you Mr. Stones I don’t want you back again either!) It’s not very expensive and I do like it so there you have it!

Mom says that you probably want to know what my name stands for, so here it is: “S”is for Snuggly, “A” is for Adorable, “S”is for SUPER, “S” is for Sweet, Smart and Sassy (I’m all of those!) and “Y” is for Young-at-heart.

If I sound like your kind of girl, please complete an application and ask for me.

Twirls and Headstands,
Simply Sensational Sassy

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.
