.. but aren't I adorable today!  (February 18)

fff


Life is wonderful!


January 2003    Hi .. I'm Bentley
and though I still waddle as my hip heals,
I
just LOVE life! 
I like giving presents and always greet my people with one of my best toys first thing in the morning .  I like to PLAY too!  I'll run and fetch with lots of smiles and tail wags.   I LOVE to be held and cuddled ...  I'll whimper just a bit when my people leave me alone .. I really LOVE all people (especially my caretakers!) but have some significant fear aggression toward BIG dogs and can't handle small dogs who want to play rough, so I probably need to be in a one-dog home.  I'm so small .. and still a bit fragile.

 Feb 1 -  Bentley is progressing very well! 

SPECIAL NOTE: We are overwhelmed with appreciation at the huge number of inquiries from people throughout the U.S. and Canada . . .all  wanting to adopt this dear little fellow.  It is bolstering to our hearts to know there are so many wonderful people out there!!  We love and appreciate you !!!

GEOGRAPHIC RESTRICTION: Because of his December surgery and the possibility of a second surgery, he really needs to be adopted to a special person (or persons) in the KNOXVILLE,TN REGION. 

Thank you for understanding how responsible we feel to make sure
he gets the best of care ... and the maximum of love.

Thanks so all who support Bichon Rescue's efforts
to improve the lives of s
uch sweet fluffs

Breed: 

 Tiny Bichon/Toy Poodle mix

Color:  

White

Weight:

7 lbs

Age:

Adult 
(approx  5-7 yrs)

WANTED
LOVING HOME TO PAMPER ME

     I am a little doll of a fluff who has recently had surgery for a dislocated hip.  I am doing VERY well, but need to be adopted by someone who can gently continue my healing  .... and then possibly another surgery in about 4 months . . . after my hip has healed into a 'false socket'.  (Bichon Rescue will pay for my next surgery too.)

      Need:  When I am confronted with a big dog,  I turn into 7 lbs of CUJO DOG!!  No joke ... so I need a devoted family who will protect me from confronting bigger dogs.

     Need:  Please note my little size and fragility ... so I really need to be adopted by a kind caring adult or couple (no children please . .  though I love them too.)
