Falkor's Story...
Falkor, Young Male, 15 pounds, Richmond VA

FALKOR IS BEING FOSTERED IN THE RICHMOND VA AREA. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FALKOR, PLEASE GO TO WWW.MOMSRESCUEVA.ORG AND COMPLETE AN APPLICATION.

This is Falkor. He is a chocolate and white standard dachshund/bichon frise mix, 6-8 months old. He weighs about 15 pounds. Falkor is a gentle soul who adores children and playing with foster siblings. He loves toys of any kind and being outside playing. He is nervous when meeting new people but warms up quickly. For naps, he enjoys either laying beside his foster family or under his foster mom's feet. He is the definition of a "Velcro dog", constantly following from room to room.

He is crate trained and 90% housebroken (he is so young so accidents do happen occasionally.) He would be best suited for a family with children and a yard to play in. Apartment life would not be adequate for this fun loving guy. He is not a fan of horses so he would not make a good companion for those interested in having a doggy companion at the barn.

If you are looking for a playful, Velcro, cuddle-muffin – go to www.momsrescueva.org to see if we could be a match!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Falkor, a Richmond Bichon Frise/Dachshund puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bichon Frise/Dachshund for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Bichon Frise/Dachshund puppy from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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/Dachshund breeders who help with Bichon Frise/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
