Nico's Story...
Hello everybody!

My name is Nico and I’m a cute little angel of about 10 pounds. One look at my face and you will fall in love.

Once upon a time, I had a wonderful home with a person who loved me and took care of me - and I was the happiest little guy on earth. But one sad day, my special person passed away -- and I was taken to a shelter. Being a little guy who was used to living in a loving home, I was really scared!. Luckily, the nice people at BFK came and scooped me up. You see they could see that I was a great little guy who would make a wonderful companion.

Now, I am a little bit older than the ‘average guy’ you see on here, in fact although I have a baby face I’m a senior. But I am healthy, loving and cheerful -- and little dogs like me can live a really long life. My Mom says that I looooove to go on walks and am very alert when I’m out and about. Even though I turn around when it’s time to go home with Mom, I’m trying to get her to walk a little bit further every day. I tell her it’s good for her – and it’s great for me. Dad says that’s called a win-win!

I also love to go for rides in the car. Any time and to go any place! Sometimes I curl up and sleep the whole way, and other times, I sit on Dad’s lap and look out the window and smile. I’m also smart as a whip. As soon as Mom and Dad showed me where the ‘potty spot’ was in the yard, I started to go right there. They said that showed how smart I am and how much I want to please. And being housebroken is a pretty good quality in a doggie companion, don’t you think?

At home, I’m the perfect buddy for a snuggle in front of the TV or a nap on the sofa. I’m a quiet, gentle guy who stays right by my people! Why I even put my little paw on my Mom’s hand, so she knows that I’m there for her (and ready to get petted at any time!) Mom says that having me around is like having a visit from an old friend who fits right in.

So now I’m hoping that somebody out there is looking for a loving, gentle guy like me, to “fit right in” at their home. Do you think you might have a place for me in your hearts? Could you help me write a happy ending to my story? If so, please write, just as soon as you can, and ask for Nico, okay? I’ll be waiting with a smile.

Love and kisses,

Nice as They Come Nico

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nico, a La Costa Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in La Costa, or seeking a Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) 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/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in La Costa paves the way for another one to be saved.
