Fifi Featured

be my buddy
Bichon Frise
Born: 04/27/2007
14 lbs

If you were to search for information on Bichons, you would find descriptive words such as: self-assured, cheery, happy, playful, content, loves human company, bold, lively and naturally sociable. Due to severe neglect and abuse Fifi suffered at the hands of a puppy miller, she is none of those things. Rather, she is just plain terrified. Her heart and spirit have been shattered. She does not know how to respond to love. She does not understand toys. She cannot fathom the kindness of a human's touch. We have had many Bichons from mills pass through our doors and all of them started off almost as bad as Fifi. They are highly sensitive and extremely smart and will not be fooled by humans. The good news is that they have all responded beautifully to socialization and are now the happiest little creatures. Fifi is starting to turn some corners and we expect that she, too, will be shining brightly and displaying a silly little Bichon grin as soon as she decides we are worthy. We very much would like to find her a home so that she can continue her progress safe in the arms of her loving family.

Thanks for Visiting Our Animals!

Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Hearts United for Animals does long distance adoptions if there are safe flights and we have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. We require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of our dogs. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered and are current on health care. We can cat test a dog if requested. If you are interested in adopting a dog, we can give you more information on each dog if you click the Adoption Info & Application link above. Buddies are people who support the dog and send them love while they are waiting for their new home. The dog does not live with the buddy.
