Windy's Story...

***New in 2014, meet the dogs at our bi-monthly open houses at 828 Perkins Dr, Mukwonago, WI on the first and third Saturdays of the month.  Our next open houses are Apr 19, 2014 and May 3, 2014.  Open house hours are 12-2pm.  During this time you may meet the dogs and fill out a pre-adoption application which will be checked during the week.  If you have an approved pre-adoption application, we may be able to finalize an adoption during the open house.  Note:  Some of our dogs are in foster homes, and may not be available during the open house events.

Other than during open houses, we do not show dogs/cats without an appointment.  The first step in adoption is filling out the pre-adoption application at http://www.bichonrescues.com/adoption.html.  Please do not call until AFTER you have filled out an application.***

General Profile:  Please fill out the adoption application at www.bichonrescues.com/adoption.html if you are interested in meeting one of our dogs. 

***Windy needs a securely fenced yard in her new home.

Windy came to us from a breeder, so she is a shy girl who isn't use to much handling.  Although she is scared, she should become more social with some time.  She has never lived in a house, so she needs a person who will give her time to figure out things that most dogs learn as pups.  The time you give this beautiful girl will be so worth it!  Former breeding dogs often do best in homes with another small dog as they are use to the company of other dogs and look to them for guidance and security.    In one of her photos, she is pictured with her Yorkie friend Kibbles.

Update 2/2014:  Windy has been in a foster home for some time and has become a bit more confident in home life.  She is still a shy girl, but loves food so if you have food she is right there.  While she doesn't want to be petted yet, she will lay near you.  She is continuing to gain more trust in humans, so in time will probably even ask for some petting.  She still has an occasional accident in the house but is working on it.  Warmer weather will probably help that!  She is going to need a fenced yard for her safety as she can be a bit tricky to catch when she is running around.  She is a sweet girl who needs someone who is willing to continue to give her time to progress from a breeding dog to a loved pet.

Adoption Procedures:
1.  Completely fill out the pre-adoption application.  We will be checking with your vet if you have had pets, calling your landlord (if any) and checking a personal reference, before we contact you about visiting the adoptables.  Any missing information may have us moving onto another application.
2.  If you application is approved, we will contact you to come meet the adoptables that you are interested in.  
3.  If it is a match, you will complete the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee.  Please be prepared to take your adopted pet home when you come meet him/her.  In most cases, you will be able to take the pet home the same day.  If all the vetting hasn't been done yet, we will hold the pet for you until the vet work is completed. 
4.  If you have filled out an application and we haven't contacted you within a week, we may have missed your application, the pet may have been adopted by another applicant, or you may have been missing information on your application.  You may contact us to find out the status of your application at this time.  Please give us a week to process your application before contacting us!
 
The adoption fee through Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue is $125 - $425 depending on the age of the dog, which includes Wi State Sales Tax.  Included in this fee is your new companion who will be spayed/neutered, have a current Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (as required by state law), current on age appropriate vaccinations, heartworm tested and started on preventative, microchipped, and dewormed.  Other medical needs will also have been taken care of, such as dentals and treating ear infections. 

To assist you and your new pet in adjusting to life together, you will also receive an 8 week age appropriate obedience training course at For Pet's Sake Dog Training for a reduced fee of $50 (up to $190 value).  You may opt to take Puppy Kindergarten, Adult Beginners, Small Dogs Big Hearts, or Shy & Reactive Dog Class.  You must start the class within 90 days of adoption for the reduced fee.  For more information on the classes visit www.forpetssake.cc

All dogs are seen BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  Many are in various foster homes getting extra one on one attention getting them ready for their new homes.  The first step in adoption is filling out the pre-adoption application.  Bichon and Little Buddies is run by volunteers who have full time jobs in addition to the hours they spend with the rescue dogs.  Having an application on file assures us that the potential adopter is really interested in adopting a dog.  It also assists us in placing dogs in homes where both the dog and new owners are happy.  The application puts you under no obligation to adopt a dog from Bichon and Little Buddies.

The Dog Pre-Adoption Application can be found at http://www.bichonrescues.com/preadoptionform.html

Thanks for thinking about adopting your new pet!



***We are a Wisconsin based rescue and do not ship our pets.  If you are considering adoption you must be willing to drive to meet and adopt the pet, as well as bring the pet back to us if the adoption doesn't work.  We adopt primarily in WI and IL, but will consider applicants in MN, IA, and MI.***

***Please do not set up an appointment to meet the animals until you are ready to take your pet home.  If the meeting results in a match, you can often take the dog/cat home the same day or within a couple days if the medical care hasn't been completed.  We are not able to hold pets for adopters beyond this time.  Thanks for understanding.***

***While we hope all of our adoptions lead to permanent homes for the animals we place, sometimes things just don't work out.  We do have a 30 day trial period.  For the first 30 days, if you or Bichon and Little Buddies decide that the adoption isn't a good match for either the humans or the pet, the adoption fee will be refunded (minus a $50 administration fee).  Bichon and Little Buddies also requires adopters to return the pet to us at any time that they are unable or unwilling to care for the animal anymore.***

Bichon and Little Buddies is a State Licensed Rescue # 268555-DS

About Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Bichon and Little Buddies is a rescue that primarily cares for small breed dogs that find themselves looking for a new home. Dogs come to us from a variety of places. We have former breeding dogs from "puppy mills", strays and lost dogs unclaimed by their owners, and previously loved dogs that the owners are unwilling or no longer able to care for.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our dogs are housed at our facility as well as in foster homes. If you are interested in meeting a pet, please fill out the pre-adoption application, and we will set up an appointment for you to meet the dog(s) you are interested in. We are all volunteers working full time jobs in addition to our rescue work, so please make an appointment before coming by.

Our Adoption Process...

Before meeting with a dog, a pre-adoption application must be completed. After the application is approved, a meeting is arranged between the adopter and the pet. An adoption contract is signed, adoption fee paid (from $125-$425), and the dog is able to go to the new home once all medical care is given. Dogs are fully vetted, including vaccinations, microchip, spay/neuter, heartworm test, deworming, dental if needed, and other procedured needed by the particular dog. Adopters are required to return the dog to us if they are unable or unwilling to care for the dog in the future.

We are all volunteers working full time jobs in addition to our rescue work. Please be patient if it takes a day or two for us to get back to you. We do try to respond promptly, but the care of our animals takes priority to phone calls and emails.
