Facts about Suki

  • Breed: Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Suki is a tender little angel, who will repay you with endless kisses for your kindness. She is a bit shy around strangers, but warms up to visitors at her foster home after about 20 minutes. Due to her shyness around strangers, Suki would probably do best in a calm household that could include older children. Currently, Suki looks like a little lamb, but her coat is filling out and becoming fluffier all the time. We believe she is a Bichon/Poodle mix, no matter what she is, she is certainly adorable! Suki is approximately 2 years old, spayed, and is current on vaccinations. She did have to have a rear leg amputated, but is recovering well and moving around just fine. If you would like to donate towards Suki’s extra medical expenses, you can make a tax deductible donation.

Suki is super chill and is just as happy frolicking and playing or curling up and watching the world. But her favorite thing, by far, is cuddling. She’s eager to please and wants to be with her people as often as they’ll have her. Likewise, while she’s willing to sleep somewhere nearby, she’s always excited to be invited into bed and will curl up with you all night and give you kisses in the morning (and all day- she’s a kisser.) She still gets very nervous around strangers, making city walks a challenge as she’ll stop and stare and/or hide any time someone is approaching, but she’s getting better slowly and responds well to patience and encouragement.

We are not sure how Suki is living with all dogs, but she definitely enjoys living with her foster family’s chill senior border collie, who she shadows around the house and on walks. When her foster sibling, the senior border collie, has dementia related anxiety Suki gives her kisses to help calm her, very sweet!

About Wonder Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Wonder Dog Rescue has a long history of rescuing dogs in need! Our founder, Linda Beenau, was introduced to rescue in 1992. She assisted Nancy Ford, a long-time Boston and Pug rescuer. Over time she formed Bay Area Boston Terrier Rescue. As time went on, the group grew, and began helping dogs of all sizes, shapes and breeds. Wonder Dog Rescue is the synthesis of this progression.

We are a dedicated volunteer group, serving the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, and rescuing dogs from all over Northern and Central California. Wonder Dog Rescue has saved blind and deaf dogs, puppies as young as two weeks and seniors as old as 15! We offer hospice to special needs and elderly dogs, caring for them until the end of their lives. Each animal has so much to offer… and we learn so much by opening our hearts to these deserving companions.

When a dog comes into rescue he or she is evaluated carefully. All dogs receive vaccinations and are spayed or neutered, and some dogs receive additional medical care or behavior modification. We work with each dog, giving them the love and structure they need to move onward. Dogs stay in foster homes until they are matched with their ideal family. We want these adoptions to be life long, and take this very seriously!

Volunteers help in the transporting of dogs from shelters, socializing & walking, bathing, fostering and assisting at mobiles. Email us if you have even two hours a week and want to make a real difference in these animals' lives.... you won't be sorry!

Come Meet Our Pets...

You are invited to come to our Mobile Adoptions every Saturday! Locations may vary, please see our website for location and time.

Our Adoption Process...

We adopt dogs to homes in Northern California. Very few exceptions are made, and we never ship dogs. We receive many wonderful applications from people in the Pacific Northwest, Canada and Southern California. The issue with long-distance placements is this: We have no reliable way of getting the dog back to us if the adoption falls through. For this reason we must deny these applicants.

Adopters will sign a contract stating that the dog is to be returned to rescue if they are unable to keep the animal. We will take a dog back at ANY time. It is our deep commitment to these animals that they not be returned to shelters. We will also provide you lifelong assistance.... Please contact us at any time with questions about health, nutrition and behavior. We'd rather meet up with you and do some needed training than to have you surrender the dog. Adoptions are a life-long commitment. We are here to help you fulfill the promise to your new dog.

Dog Adoption Fees

Questions about adoption fees are often the first we hear when speaking with potential adopters. We'd love to take a moment to break it down for you! Adoption fees can vary, depending on medical issues, age, breed and medical condition of the dog. Special exceptions are made for senior dogs and for families with special circumstances. Donations above the "fee" amount are considered tax-deductible by law.

Adoption fees for DOGS are a sliding scale, generally between $250 and $350. We will always try to lower the fee if you have special needs. PUPPIES and certain dogs may have higher adoption fees..... this is merely due to the costs associated with doing rescue.
