Jasper and Jobey had a family in Texas and then when a family member got cancer, they were tossed aside and made to live outside. A Texas rescue took and them in with hopes of getting them to Wisconsin where they will have the chance to find a wonderful loving home. At the shelter they are both a little shy, but Jasper is the more outgoing one, wanting attention. Jobey tends to hid when he is unsure about the people around but will come out and get attention when it is just the people he knows around. Outside they are both a little more active. We would love for them to be adopted together as they have been together their entire lives. Now that they lost their home and family, we don't want them to lose each other. With a little time they will bond nicely to a new family and are sure to bring lots of joy. We don't know if they lived with children, but older, respectful children should be fine. And we don't know if they were exposed to other pets. If you are looking to add two adorable, scruffy fellows to your family Jasper and Jobey may be the pair for you. If interested, please fill out the pre-adoption application so we can set up a time for you to meet them.
We do our best to evaluate the dogs while they are with us, but they sometimes act different in the shelter environment than they do in a home. Many times we do not know the actual breed/mix or age of the dog, in that case we use our best guess as to breed and age.
The adoption procedures are listed below. Priority is given to potential adopters who fill out the application on our website. If a listing is on the adoption websites, we are still accepting applications. The listing is removed once we have received a sufficient number of applications or the pet leaves the shelter.
1. Completely fill out the pre-adoption application at http://www.bichonrescues.com/pre-adoption-form-dog. Any missing information may have us moving onto another application.
2. If you application is approved, we will contact you to come meet the adoptables that you are interested in.
3. If it is a match, you will complete the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee. Please be prepared to take your adopted pet home when you come meet him/her. In most cases, you will be able to take the pet home the same day.
4. If you have filled out an application and we haven't contacted you within a week, we may have missed your application, the pet may have been adopted by another applicant, or you may have been missing information on your application. You may contact us to find out the status of your application at this time. Please give us a week to process your application before contacting us!
The adoption fee through Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue is $200 - $500 depending on the age of the dog, which includes Wi State Sales Tax. Included in this fee is your new companion who will be spayed/neutered, have a current Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (as required by state law), current on age appropriate vaccinations, heartworm tested (if old enough) and started on preventative, microchipped, and given a general wormer. Other medical needs will also have been taken care of, such as dentals and treating ear infections.
To assist you and your new pet in adjusting to life together, you may chose to take an 8 week age appropriate obedience training course at For Pet's Sake Dog Training in Mukwonago, WI for $75 (up to $230 value). You may opt to take Puppy Kindergarten, Adult Beginners, or Small Dogs Big Hearts. You must register for the class within 90 days of adoption for the reduced fee.

All dogs are seen BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Bichon and Little Buddies is run by volunteers who have full time jobs in addition to the hours they spend with the rescue dogs. Having an application on file assures us that the potential adopter is really interested in adopting a dog. It also assists us in placing dogs in homes where both the dog and new owners are happy. The application puts you under no obligation to adopt a dog from Bichon and Little Buddies.

Thanks for thinking about adopting your new pet!
Before meeting with a dog, a pre-adoption application must be completed. After the application is approved, a meeting is arranged between the adopter and the pet. An adoption contract is signed, adoption fee paid (generally $350), and the dog is able to go to the new home once all medical care is given. Dogs are fully vetted, including vaccinations, microchip, spay/neuter, heartworm test, deworming, dental if needed, and other procedured needed by the particular dog. Adopters are required to return the dog to us if they are unable or unwilling to care for the dog in the future.
