Bichon Frise: What is a Rescue Dog?

What is a Bichon Frise rescue dog and where do they come from?

Rescue” refers to dogs that have come to rescue groups because of any number of reasons and need new homes. Some of the reasons Bichon Frises become rescue dogs are: deteriorating health, the owners are unable or uninterested in caring for them anymore or they may come from pounds, shelters, puppy mills or even as strays.

Every day thousands of dogs are euthanized because they are inconvenient. In some cases Bichon Frises lose their homes because the owners did not really understand the needs or temperament of these lively little” lap dogs” when they got them. As “lap dogs” Bichon Frises really are companion dogs and require human interaction and attention. They don’t do well when left alone for long periods of time.

Some new owners underestimate the amount of grooming their Bichon Frise requires while some owners discover they are “allergic” to them and consequently get rid of them. If your are considering adopting a Bichon Frise or any dog it’s important to do some research to understand the specific characteristics and needs of the breed.

A rescue dog may or may not come from an environment where he/she was mistreated or in imminent danger. Awareness of the former home and circumstances of the dog’s background is important in determining placement in a new home. Any special needs (especially health and behavior issues) need to be determined in order to select a suitable home.

If you are considering adopting a Bichon Frise from a rescue group be prepared to fill out an application and be interviewed. This is an important step in the adoption process in order to assess your ability and time to take care of your dog and provide a good home. It also helps to determine the best match between you and your future pet.
