Barney's Story...
Hello Everyone,
My name is Barney and I’m an adorable little bichon about one year old and weighing only 12 pounds. My Aunties at Bichon FurKids called me Barney because I am so friendly and adorable (but they don’t think I’m a purple tyrannosaurus, really!) Mom says that good things come in small packages – and I’m a pretty cute little package – not to mention an adorable, handsome, adaptable and happy little bichon boy!
Dad says I’m called Barney because I have a great imagination, can entertain myself and others! (Dad says I do this very clever thing when I’ve finished eating (but hoping for seconds.) I very politely pick up my plate and carry it to the middle of the kitchen to let him know I just might like a bit more to eat. I also like to show Dad where Mom keeps my food and treats (in case he doesn’t know.) Can you also tell that I’m S-M-A-R-T?
Mom says I am very sweet and cuddly, (a wonderful combination) a good natured boy who gets along with just about anyone and everyone. She says I’m playful (always up for a game of fetch or chase), love my walks (do beautifully on a leash) and ride like an angel in the car. At night, when playtime is over, I curl up quietly in my crate and go to sleep. Oh, and another good thing …. I hardly ever bark!
Dad says I’ve already learned these things called ‘commands’ and I know ‘sit’, ‘up’, ‘stay’ and ‘let’s go!’ (Guess which one is my favorite?)I like to make people happy. And in return they give me lots and lots of love. And love is my very favoritest thing in the whole wide world!
My perfect home will have people around most of the time – and another FurKid or human kids would be …. Perfect!.
If I sound like the kind of guy for you, please complete our application at and ask for Barney, 'cause I'll be waiting to hear from you.
Love and tail wags,
Bouncy and Blissful Barney

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barney, 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.
