Tipper's Story...
Hello Everyone!
My name is Tipper. Please allow me to introduce myself because I’m a pretty spectacular pup. Now I’m absolutely not bragging (I would never, ever do that). However, everyone that meets me says that it’s true!
My foster Mom and Dad will tell you that I’m a very handsome and loving Bichon boy of about three, who is loyal, attentive, eager to please and great with people. I’m a “meeter and a greeter” and just to show you how happy I am to see you, I wrap my legs around you and give you a big ’hug’. (That really makes Mom smile!) She says Buddy would be a great nickname for me because that is just what I am — and what I am good at. I’m the best buddy you could ever ask for. I am happy, sweet and quite talented. Why I can charm my way onto your lap in no time at all. Dad says I just focus my big brown eyes on you and presto! There I am. I’m the kind of pup who is happy go on adventures, go for a ride or sit and watch TV, anything as long as I can be near my people. (Mom wants you to know that I really DO watch TV ! My eyes follow the motion on the screen. The one thing I can’t do is change the channel, but Mom helps me with that!)

As you can probably tell, I’m a cuddly, cute and mellow kind of guy (about 13 pounds) who is as friendly as I am sweet. (Dad says that’s an amazing combination!) I’m the kind of pup that doesn’t take things for granted and has excellent manners. I’m also incredibly smart and want to please. I sleep quietly all night in the Big People’s bed – and always let Mom and Dad know when I need to go out. Of course, being the gentleman that I am, I’m completely housebroken.

I know some commands and am willing to learn more. I like my walks and rides in the car, and will never turn down a good game of tug but mostly I’m, indeed, a snuggle bunny. Oh silly me! I’m not a bunny at all – I’m a furkid! Well, what I was trying to say is that the thing that I like to do best of all is to lie next to you (or better on your lap) or be in the same room, content to know that you are nearby. But I’m not a couch potato, no siree. Just take out my harness and I’m ready to join you on any adventure. Mom wants you to know that while I am good with other dogs (I greet them nicely when we walk), most of all I prefer people.

Now that I’m a furkid, life is great again – but it has been a bit of a rocky road. Once I had a wonderful home where I was loved and taken care of. I was just about the happiest pup on earth. But one day things changed and my family brought me to the shelter. I was so scared and afraid that all I did was pace up and down, down and up. I just didn’t know what I was going to do. Luckily, my BFK Aunties heard about me and scooped me up. (They could see that I was a great guy who would make a wonderful friend.)

So if you are interested in a loving, gentle, cuddly, playful, affectionate, tv watching– and don’t forget– adorable Bichon, and you have another furkid or two for me to play with, then I’m the guy for you! Just fill out our application and ask for Tipper.

Tail wags and kisses,
Terrific,Talented and Treasured Tipper

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tipper, a La Costa 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 La Costa, or seeking a Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in La Costa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in La Costa 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 La Costa 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 La Costa paves the way for another one to be saved.
