PEPE's Story...
Pepe is very sad. On September 22, his 80 year-old guardian went out to the stable to feed his horses, and never came back. He suffered a fatal heart attack and Pepe's life, of six years by his side, was turned upside down. The son who inherited the ranch left Pepe, a pure bred Bichon Frise, outdoors with another one of his late father's dogs. That dog ran away, but Pepe kept a vigil by the back door. Close friends brought Pepe to True Blue Friends, over the weekend.

Pepe is experiencing severe separation anxiety. He first sat by the front door, staring out the glass pane, looking longingly for a familiar face to appear. Now, he follows us from room to room, never wanting to be out of sight. It is breaking our hearts. Pepe was adopted as a puppy and misses his old friend. He is slowly coming out of his shell, letting us pet and hold him. He is a big lap dog, weighing a little over 20 pounds We are told by friends of the family that he is extremely affectionate, planting kisses on them, and that he would get so excited when people came out to the ranch, he would run circles around a big tree until he was out of breath. We are hoping to see that exuberance and enthusiasm for life return to Pepe with a very patient family, sensitive to Pepe's great loss. If you are someone that feels you can mend a broken heart, please come by and give little Pepe a big hug at this Tuesday's Rice U Farmer's Market.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PEPE, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
