Ricky's Story...
Hi People,
We are Ricky and Lucy, a dynamic duo of about two who are happy, sweet and loving . I’m Ricky and I’m a darling little Havanese who thinks of himself as the man of the house. My foster mom says I’m sweet and loving -- and a bit of a character. I weigh about 11 pounds and am a lover -- great with kids and people of all sizes and shapes.

My kid sister Lucy is a little bichon ballerina who can stand on her hind legs and never lose her balance, She’s a bit more shy and reserved than I am initially -- but once Lucy bonds with you, you’ll get to see her more playful side. (On the other hand she thinks of me as her 'responsibility' and is always checking on what I'm doing. Isn’t that funny?)

We like to play wrestle with each other (Dad calls it tormenting each other in a good way. Silly Dad!) and we like to go for walks and rides. Being outside on a leash is still rather new to us and we think it is really neat! Mom says we need a lot of practice, though, so she is showing us how to walk properly. She’s also teaching us some ‘basic commands’ Those are also new to us but we want to please and are eager to learn so it should be a ‘snap’ for us to learn to "speak the language".

Mom says that Lucy is not as brave or outgoing as I am but she loves to be petted and held once she's comfortable. Dad says I’m a master kisser and "belly rub requester" - as well as a bit of a ham. (I think Dad likes that a lot, actually!) We are very playful with one another and inseparable. In fact we are happiest when we can snuggle together. (We even like to share the same crate – but have our own beds!)

Lucy and I get along well with other small dogs and we love people. We are good with older kids (we are used to be around the ones called ‘teens’ currently) but Mom and Dad don’t know how we would be with cats or younger children (as there aren’t any in our foster home.)

What we want most of all is a Forever Family ….and a home where we can be together, love and be loved (and where we can entertain you, too!)

If we sound like your kind of pups, please complete an application for us because we’d love to meet you. We're looking forward to being in our Forever Home very soon.

Kisses and tail wags,
Irrepressible Ricky and Lovable Lucy (aka the Dynamic Duo!)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ricky, 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.
