Story
Hello New Friends! I’m Radiant and Remarkable Rylee, a beautiful Bichon girl of three who is adorable, affectionate, confident and energetic - and, did I mention, lovable? Mom says I excel in being lovable! Why I love big people and small people and I love with all my heart (and all 16 pounds of me, too!) Dad says I’m housebroken and VERY smart. He says that I love all the things that Bichons love - like walks, treats, cuddles, and squeaky toys! I will run to catch them – and (drum roll please) I also bring them back to him! I’m really a cuddler at heart. If any of the family is sitting on the couch, well I like to join them to cuddle and cuddle and cuddle. Mom says I get as close as possible and convince you to pet me. When you stop I nuzzle so you will keep petting! You see, I’m smart enough to know the joys of being petted! Mom says I get an A++ in cuddles! I tell her, “Mom, I’m just practicing. And I expect to get better every day!” I’m an easy and very loyal little girl. I know my commands and I am very S-M-A-R-T! The thing about me is that I’m ‘engaging.’ I like to engage my doggy foster brother and sister (to get them to play) and my Mom and Dad to get them to play—or to snuggle. Anyone who knows me instantly finds out that I am VERY convincing. And when I look at you (or them) with my big brown eyes they simply have to (you got it…) engage! I warm up very quickly to new people and am confident that they will like me. Right now I’m recovering from this thing called a surgery. You see my previous owners didn’t care for me properly so I needed to have an operation. (You may remember my story as I’m pretty famous and lots of people were pulling for me!) I’m recovering from it beautifully and doing everything I have been told to do. My Ideal Home: *Someone home most of the time *Another active, playful dog around my age *Adults or a family with kids Experience level: *Have had dogs as an adult *Recent/current dog experience a plus I’m a very special little girl with a great big heart who is adorable, loving and playful! Only the most special home will be right for me ‘cause I have so much love to give. Mom says I’d be the perfect companion for just about anyone. So please complete an application and ask for Rylee Wags and cuddles, Radiant and Remarkable Rylee

Story
Hello World! My name is Cuddly Coco and I’m a cute little guy who is about 3 ½ years old and simply adorable. Now I’m not bragging but everyone that meets me says I’m a ‘cutie patootie’. I’m not exactly sure what that means but my foster Mom says I’m ‘adorbs’ and that everything I do is adorable! Mom says I’m 15 pounds of fun – and so happy that I smile – and wag my tail – all the time (except when I’m lying in your arms and cuddling!) Dad says I’m masterful at lying on my back, looking up at you with my big brown eyes and ‘convincing’ you to rub my back. And since I became a FurKid I have discovered these wonderful and amazing things called toys! I have this small plastic soccer ball and a stuffed rainbow! I like to play Fetch with my soccer ball (I actually bring it back too!) and carry my rainbow around the house with me most of the time. Besides being charming, kind, cuddly, delightful and happy, I’m also obedient, playful and want to please! Sound good? Then please read on! Mom says that I’m equal parts sweet and shy, a darling little guy who just wants to be around you- in your lap, by your side, next to you in bed, on a car ride. As long as I’m with you, I’m fine. Did I mention that I LOVE the car? My best quality is that I’m just a great little friend. (And I promise I’ll be the bestest companion to some lucky person or couple!) While I am shy at first when you meet me the moment a new person sits on the couch I climb all over them and love them up. And then we are instant friends! I’m finding out that there are lots of pretty special human beings in this world that I can like and who like me! I’m learning that love and attention are good things! And did I mention that ONCE I TRUST YOU I’M IN LOVE FOR LIFE? Oh! and I’ve discovered that ear scratches and belly rubs are pretty neat! So sign me up for more of them, please! Dad calls me “Super Glue” because I bonded with him in about two seconds. He says I’m a happy, silly, playful, energetic and social little love bug who wants to participate in all that life has to offer! Did I mention that I’m housebroken (no typo there) and am also learning commands! Why I already come when I’m called (that’s more than some of my bichon cousins do!) and I’m learning “sit.” So if you are looking for a darling pup, with lots of promise, are willing to continue my training (I want to become the best little guy that I can be), are active, home most of the time and like to do lots of things, I'm applying to be your new best friend. My Ideal Home: People who are home most of the time but also active Adopters willing to continue my training Prefer a single person or couple – no children please No other FurKids are required Experience level: Recent/current experience Rescue experience a plus! So if I sound like a pup you’d like to meet, please complete our adoption application. Mom says to tell you that there's something incredibly special about me--almost like I know what you're thinking – and that you couldn't ask for a better companion. Snuggles and Cuddles, Cuddly, Clever and Charming Coco

Story
Hello People, My name is Vivi and I’m a sweet and quite sassy little girl of five looking for a forever home. My foster Mom says I’m very loving and affectionate -- and as feminine as they come. I’m all of 12 pounds, am housebroken (and use the doggy door) and I love my crate. I even put myself to bed at night if I’m tired (but Mom lets me come in to the Big People’s Bed in the morning for a cuddle or two or three!) Dad says I’m a diamond in the rough. He and Mom are doing their best to teach me the proper way to behave in the world. I’m definitely making progress but will need to continue my ‘learning’ with someone who is a super smart and VERY savvy dog person. If that sounds like you, please read on! While I am long on (good) looks and cute as can be, I’m also pretty willful. I like to do what I like to do (which is why I need someone who is smarter than I am and will guide me into perfect behaviors.) I walk well on a leash and am learning to relax in the car. I do best on short drives and when I can listen to music. I do love to cuddle and am known for springing up into your lap to cuddle at the slightest provocation and wanting you to pet my head ( but only my head, please!). If you are lying on the sofa, I love to roll on top of you and make cute little "snorty" noises as I turn around. Unfortunately I’m not a pup that is good around children. If you have children or grandchildren that visit I’m not the one for you. Sorry! I’m an ‘adults-only’ kind of pup. Mom says before I became a FurKid I was adopted simply because I am cute. So I formed some bad habits that she is helping me to overcome. Since I’m smart, I’m definitely learning what to do and not do. I’m also a bit selective about making friends. I bark when people come to the door (Dad says I’m a great watchdog) but when I know someone, I’m much friendlier. I also guard my toys, which is why I’m best as the only pup in the house. My Ideal Home: *Someone home most of the time * NO other FurKids--as I like to be the center of attention * Adults only * NO children or grandchildren * Committed to training me Experience level: *Recent dog experience a must! *Rescue dog experience a plus! *Experience with behavioral training a real plus!!! Because I wasn’t successful in my ‘past life’ I’m hoping to make up for lost time – and am looking for adopters who will appreciate my femininity and my affectionate nature – and will continue to work on my training so I can become the best little girl that I can be. Mom says there is no doubt that I’m well worth the effort but you have to know my signals so that I can be successful. If I sound like the pup you are looking for please let us know. It will be a very special home to which I am adopted as I’m a very special kind of pup. If that sounds like you, please send an email explaining your experience and background to bfkapplicants@gmail.com If you sound like you represent a fit, we will be back in touch.

ALLY IS PENDING ADOPTION, SHE IS IN REHAB FOR HER FOOT AND BROC IS ACCEPTING DONATIONS. Hello! My name is Ally, My foster mom says that I'm the happiest girl you will ever meet. I'm approx. seven years old and I do love every human and pup I meet, I must say, I'm very social. I was born without a right front foot, yet I don't miss it a bit. I love walks and meeting new friends. Oh did I mention I love a good nap on my humans lap. I guess you could call me a "lap lover". I am 12 -pound female Bichon Frise mix, I normally have a beautiful "hair do" but I had to be shaved, since my last owner didn't take care of me very well. I am loved and well-cared for with my foster family but I am looking for my forever home. I have had a thorough health examination, I’m microchipped and I will have a dental cleaning prior to adoption. If you have room in your heart and home for me, please complete an adoption application. https://bichonrescueoc.org/adoption-application
