|Rescue Me ID: 15-07-01-00534Peaches & Cream (female)|
She is an AKC purebred Bischon Frisse. Microchipped. Born 3/3/03. At 12, I would expect her to live another 4-6 years at least. My mom and dad had the same breed when I was growing up and that dog lived to be 18. She free feeds from a food dispenser. She is healthy. She's considered a hypoallergenic breed. No shedding. No issues other than her hearing is starting to go. House trained. Crate trained. She was also previously trained with an electric fence. But I can let her out or have her out with me and she absolutely will never run away. She's stays right by me or others. I'm pretty sure if I left her outside and forgot and drove away, 12 hours later, she would still be sitting by the front door waiting for me. She has always had a small muscle problem in her left rear leg. When she runs she will occasionally look like she slightly limps on that leg. I've called it a 'hitch in her giddy up.' Vets have checked and said it is likely a tight tendon, but nothing to worry about. It would however disqualify her from being a 'show dog.' She will occasionally have an accident if you don't pick up on her signals that she has to go out. But it's always easy to clean up. Kind of like a tootsie roll. Very rarely she has peed indoors, again if she is not let out. She has not been to a vet for the last 6 years. After I had to put Fudge (my German Short Haired Pointer) down she became pretty exclusively an indoor dog. I didn't see a reason for rabies and heart worm shots. But without her being current, I can't board her at a facility because they require all animals to be current. Even though she was my ex-wife's dog, she's really always been my dog. I have always done 100% of the work to care for her and she knows I'm the Alpha male. She's a great little companion dog. I love her, but it's a problem for me since I travel monthly, I have to find somebody to care for her. That's the only reason I'm considering giving her up. Many people with Bischon's will spend tons on caring for their hair. Monthly appointments. That's just crazy to me. I don't. I do brush her fairly frequently when her hair grows out or else she gets matted up. I usually have her shaved down twice a year, fall and spring. In the winter I have a sweater that she wears continuously to keep her warm, especially when going outside. She does get cold easily. I brush her teeth about every three weeks and give her fresh breath treats in between. She can get pretty bad breath otherwise. I stopped crating her every night years ago. I used to crate her nightly and whenever I went out back when I had other dogs too and they all were crated nightly. Now she sleeps in her own bed in my bedroom. She is a 'lap dog.' She climbs up on the sofa and chairs and parks herself right next to you. Or on you. She used to jump up on my bed. But I stopped that years ago. Now the bed is too high for her to jump up on. Plus that's now where the cat sleeps. Also, if she is crated for a long time, over 8-10 hours and needs to go, she will go in the crate. That can be a mess to clean up and typically a pain in the butt. Then she needs a bath too. So what I usually do is this: I keep her crate in my garage. When I go out of the house and will be gone more than three hours, I put Peaches in the garage and let her run around in there, no food, no water. I leave her crate open. It's also got a soft and warm bed for her to lay on. If by chance I'm gone too long and she can't wait, she has a couple of 'spots' in the garage where she will pee and/or shit - never in her crate as long as she's not locked in. And it's actually very easy to clean up. And better in the garage than on the carpet in the house. And much more so than cleaning her crate and bathing her. Keep in mind, as long as she has gone out before I leave her and I restrict her food and water, she generally can go 8-12 hours without ever having an accident. But anything beyond 6-8 hours is a potential for accident, just like most any dog. She is quite the scavenger and will get into any food left out or garbage. So I have to be careful if I leave her to make sure that there is nothing for her to get into. If I leave her in the garage and there is a garbage bag (waiting for garbage day) that she can smell food in I will come home to the bag having been torn open and garbage everywhere. If I leave an empty pizza box in the recycling bin, that will cause her to dig through the whole bin and tear it all up. I've made that mistake a couple times. She knows it's bad, but she simply can't help herself. She will look at me and I know right away when she has 'f'ed' up somewhere. She has the 'I know, I was a bad dog, but I just couldn't help myself' look. Generally if I do all the right things, then she does too. I would also include several dog beds, a crate, food dispenser and other things. (Less)

Carson is an eight year old male Bichon Frise. He is still peppy and playful and would make a fine walking companion or lap dog, especially for an older person. He has a touch of arthritis and takes a daily carprofen tablet that works well. He weighs 17# and is seeking a home with adults only. Please give this fine gentleman a permanent home. Donation of adopters choice.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-01-29-00540Jerrie (male)|
Jerrie is an eight year old Bichon Frise/ Poodle mix who weighs about 12 pounds. He was groomed short as the poor guy was matted to the skin- so matted that he couldn't see. He was sick and frightened. He has gotten a badly needed dental cleaning and has had several teeth extracted, and is on medication for his infected gums. His nails were overgrown and his dewclaws were curled and grown into his feet. His foster mom tells us that Jerrie is a happy, curious, energetic little guy who loves hanging out on the couch and exploring the house. He enjoys being with the other small dog in the house, but likes to chase the cats. Jerrie knows the word 'no' which helps him learn what is expected of him. Jerrie loves to chew a bone, play with toys and is happy hanging out with his favorite people. He walks well on a leash. Jerrie is quiet, friendly, confident and is a little bit slow to warm up, plus he is protective of family and home. He is nearly there with his house training and does well in a crate. This little guy needs a quiet only adult home. With a little bit of love and patience Jerrie will make a great companion. His minimum adoption donation is of the adopter's choice. (Less)

Bichon Frise Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Bichon Frise is a cute, small, lovable dog. Bichon Frises are very companionable and like to go everywhere with their people. Bichon Frises get along wonderfully with children and other pets. Bichon Frises need to run and play and get plenty of exercise; in addition to playing, they need to be taken on regular walks. Bichon Frises do not yap indiscriminately and they make good watchdogs.
