Facts about Ziggy

  • Breed: Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) Mix
  • Color: White - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Ziggy is a very sweet & affectionate Poo-chon (Bichon & Miniature Poodle Mix), Age 12, neutered, up to date on Vaccines, teeth cleaned & microchipped. He is good with kids and lived with a Cat. He is good around other dogs, but has not lived with one.

His only issue is he has separation anxiety when left all alone and will bark and cry. His family just moved into an apt in Brooklyn and signed a lease they can't get out of, and the neighbors have been complaining to the landlord that he barks all day when they our out at work and school.

They sadly have to give up Ziggy after having him for 12 years, and we need to find him a home with someone that either works from home, is a stay at home mom or retired person or couple looking for a very affectionate dog that loves to give kisses and cuddle next to you all the time. (As you can see from the photos... he loves to be right next to you and loves children too.

Won't someone give this wonderful boy a furever home? He would be a GREAT dog for retirees!

About Bichon Frise Rescue of Northern New Jersey

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of rescue volunteers that branched-off from a Bichon Club when we realized there was a need to find homes for unwanted Bichons. Many of these little fluffs are homeless due to their marketing as "designer/hypoallergenic" toy dogs. When the dog does not meet all of the expectations or family situations/social hardships/health issues cause dogs to be relinquished, we assist in foster and vet care, and placement into a new furever home. Senior bichons are our specialty - educating the public that these little fluffs can live to 17 or 18 years old some even older.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter. Therefore, our pets have to be met via appointment. We do attend local pet adoption events in the NJ/NY metro area.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are $150 - $400. We do have a special program "Seniors for Seniors" that promotes placement of senior bichons in furever homes (Adoption fees are from $75 - $100).

Each adopter is required to complete an adoption application (either on-line, written or faxed). We will review the application and get back to applicants within one week if your application matches an animal we fell is a good fit for you. Because we are a network of volunteers, not all applications can receive a prompt response. If you do not hear back from us within one week, please note that your application may not be appropriate for that specific dog. Check our website again. All adopters should furnish a vet reference, groomer reference (if available). A home visit will be required. We do not ship dogs. Therefore, you have to be within driving distance of Northern NJ.
