Harley's Story...
Greetings new friends!

My name is Harley and I'm a little bichon boy of two. I am being fostered in Sacramento and love it here!

Once upon a time, I belonged to a little lady who was not able to properly care for me. She couldn’t take me for walks or runs – and I never got to see or play with other FurKids either. Sadly I actually lived in her garage (which is no place for a cuddlebug like me! So some friends called the nice people at Bichon FurKids, and they came and rescued me. Now I have people and lots of other FurKids around, and I'm as happy as could be.

And I’ve discovered that I love to play. I chase my doggy brothers and sister around and around -- and we have lots of fun. Or I bring my special red toy to Mom or Dad so they can throw it for me, and I fetch it and bring it right back. (Dad says I’m really smart ‘cause he doesn’t have to go and get it for me!) Or we play tug-o-war with my toy. It's so much fun! Every once in a while, I also try to play with the cats. I try to chase them ‘cause that’s what the FurKids like -- but they don't like that very much. So Mom just tells me to go and find my bichon brothers as they will always play with me!

Mom says to tell you that I can jump like a gazelle - and that I would be perfect for agility competition. I tell her that I’m making up for lost time – just enjoying the freedom to be active and be a young bichon. Not to brag, but you should see me do the Bichon buzz. I can really move – and Mom says I do the Buzz with a great big happy smile on my face.

I'm learning so many things in my new house. Dad says that I learn easily and am eager to please. I love walks and am getting really good at staying by his side. I've also learned to sit nicely and wait for my treats. (They are so tasty. You should try them!) And I really like to be groomed, and know how to behave so that they can make me super handsome. My bad haircut is growing out and soon I will look like the handsome bichon I was meant to be (and not how that silly groomer groomed me to look either!)

Mom says I'm getting very good at being in my crate. She is teaching me all kinds of manners – like how to sit quietly while she gets my dinner. (Which is kinda hard, because I sure love dinner.) But I'm trying to learn everything, because I want my people to be proud of me. Just recently, my family has been letting me sleep on my human sister's bed at night. Wowee – do I love that. The big bed and a warm body! That’s a huge and wonderful change from being in a cold crate in the garage!

Mom says the other thing you should know about me is that I am a love bug! I will lay my head on your chest or against your neck and just stay there, content to be cuddled. She says I’m working on an ‘A’ in affection, too.

Do you have a place for a love bug in your family? (Oh, don't worry, I'm not really a bug. I'm a bichon, of course.) If you do, please write and ask for Harley.

With lots of love and snuggles,

Handsome and Happy Harley

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Harley, 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.
