Hi Everyone,
My name is Marnie the Miracle – or Miraculous Marnie. I’m also known for being sweet, affectionate, determined, energetic, and also mellow and funny. So let me tell you my story and you will know why I am the way I am.
You see, I’m a teeny little munchkin (about 8 pounds and two years old) who once lived with a family that adored me – but was not very careful about a little girl like me. So one day when they went off to work and school, I got out and decided to find them.

I wandered far and wide and found myself on a busy street. I didn’t know about busy streets and was not wise enough to know what to do. I got into something called an ‘accident’ and was hurt quite a bit. A ‘good Samaritan’ found me and brought me to a shelter. While I was there I had a chance to rest and to start to heal. Unfortunately, my injuries were more than the shelter knew how to handle. That’s when my BFK Aunties swooped in and took me to our wonderful vets. And that’s when I got my name, Miraculous Marnie!

You see, I had a broken pelvis (in several places), a hurt leg and a very sore eye. What they couldn’t figure out was why I acted like I was fine just the way I was. That was the easy part! It’s because I’m such a naturally happy little girl! I love other dogs, rides in the car, enjoy my food and desperately want someone to love me once again. I do take power naps during the day and have a funny way of sunbathing. Rather than enjoy the grass nearby or my foster family’s patio, I choose to lie on the gravel and sunbathe. My foster Mom says I have so much ‘gumption and spirit’ that it’s hard to feel sorry for yourself when you are around me. But she is hoping she might convince me to try the grass or furniture for sunbathing.

In spite of my ‘funky’ leg and because I’m so young I have a lot of energy. You would never know that I am supposed to be recovering (except for my power naps.) I’d really like (Mom says need) another furkid as a companion as that helps me to feel secure and confident. What I’m looking for is someone who wants a delightful little companion (think Velcro pup) who will lavish you with love and affection and respond a million percent when you return that love.

If that sounds like you then please ask for me. I’ll look into your heart and you will know why we were meant to meet.
Tail wags and a happy heart,
Miraculous, Magical and Much-loved Marnie

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.
