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

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.
