Posted Breed: Coton de Tulear. Shallbe is a Coton de Tulear. She is 12 Years old, 22 lbls, Healthy (with some controllable issues - see below), Housebroken and wee wee pad trained, Spayed, Up to date on shots. She is a overweight but will slim down if she can be walked more often for exercise. Although she is healthy she does have some issues that require upkeep. 1) She has severe dry eye, and does not produce ANY tears... so she requires artificial tears - drops 2-3 times a day if possible. and tacrolimus prescription drops 2 times a day. 2) She has allergic dermatitis that is now controlled with a completely fish only diet (no chicken, lamb, beef etc) This goes for treats too! Only fish diet with no other protein ingredients in it. She is currently on Blue Buffalo Canned Fish and Sweet Potato diet. (DO NOT... go off this diet or she can break out in sores on her skin) Even then she often will get a few dry crusty patches so we also give her 1/2 a 10 mg Zyrtec Tablet 2 times a day to keep it under control and she should only be bathed (at least every 2-3 weeks) with a medicated shampoo called: MALASEB Anti Fungal Shampoo She loves to follow you around and be petted and give licks... She loves to go for walks! She loves belly rubs and will roll over to get them. She is now used to getting her drops in her eyes and is good for it. She is really a love when you get to know her and loves to be with her human! She just needs someone to give her a chance. She is fine with being left alone for a few hours and hardly barks ever. Only on occasion if you are late with her breakfast LOL. She does not like her tail or back legs to be played with, brushed, cleaned or fussed with. She may try to nip initially, but is more of a faker... (lol) she tries to nip then licks you...So we prefer someone who is a strong leader. This will subside once she gets to trust you and love you. She needs an adult home with no young children under the age of 15 and an EXPERIENCED dog owner and STRONG PACK LEADER that has the patience and know how to help Shallbe with adjusting to her new home. To go to the vet or the groomer she has to be muzzled to be safe and make it easy for the vet and groomer (which I have one for her & she is fine with it) She prefers to be the only pet in the home... She does sniff and wag her tail at some dogs, but will growl and bark if they go near her bed or food or if they are alpha or aggressively trying to jump on her. She also will do this sometimes meeting dogs on leash so she should NEVER be let off leash to play with other dogs! She is partially blind from the years of untreated dry eye (but can see shadows) and sees well enough to get around her surroundings once she knows them and to walk outside with you on a leash (just watch for holes or things sticking up out of the ground and steer her away from them as she doesn't see little things well) She is also has diminished hearing but can hear loud claps or vibrations or very loud voices. Due to her weight and site issues she can not climb stairs (one or 2 is ok with the help of a leash) but no more than that. She is about 22 lbs and pretty heavy to pick up and carry (if you ever did have to go up stairs) If you are from the NORTHERN NJ or surrounding area....and you think you can give Shallbe the attention and love she needs. Won't you consider opening your home and heart to this little cutie? If you are interested in possibly adopting Shallbe, please fill out our Adoption application at: http://www.bichonrescuenj.com/bichon-frise-rescue-nnj-adoption-app.html Due to the volume of emails we receive, we cannot answer individual emails; if we feel your home may be a match for a dog, we will contact you usually within one week of application submission

More About Coton de Tulear Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

    • Poochon Dog For Adoption in East Hanover, NJ, USA

      Fluffy

      rescue
      Breed: Poochon
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Bichon Frise / Mixed (short coat). Fluffy is an AMAZING BOY! His fosters say he is very, very smart! He loves other dogs, loves people and is a happy, active, funny little boy. He loves to play and is a bouncy and active little guy. He has been a big hit on all his walks and loves to meet friends on his way. He knows several commands and likes his crate to hang out in. He would be a great addition to almost any home, but we would prefer a home with no small children under 12. Fluffy is 11 lbs, up to date on vaccines and was just neutered and had a dental cleaning. He is currently shaved a little short as he was matted to the skin when he arrived at NY ACC. The photos show him at the NYC Shelter, then 2 photos of him after my foster cut out some of the matts and then after a grooming... then the latest photos after his second grooming. He is just a GREAT GREAT BOY and a real lover that wants to be loved. His only issue is he sometimes may guard his treats and may growl if you go near them or try to take them away. There is a simple solution to this issue…. just don’t give him treats, or only give him treats that he eats right away and not treats like pig ears or dental chews that require him to chew on for hours or days at a time. He does not display any other guarding issues with food, toys, furniture or anything (only treats). This is a great boy and will be a loving companion to some lucky person or couple. If you are interested in adopting Fluffy please fill out an application at this link: http://www.bichonrescuenj.com/bichon-frise-rescue-nnj-adoption-app.html If you have already filled out an app with OUR rescue in the past, email me at nnjBichonRescue@yahoo.com and let me know you are interested and I will look up your app by your email address. Please note: you should live a reasonable driving distance from Northern NJ/NY Area (NJ / NY / Upstate NY and CT all welcome to apply).

      rescue
      Breed: Bichon Frise
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bichon Frise (short coat). James is a very sweet, affectionate and loving Male Bichon, Age 10, 20 lbs, who's elderly owner was just put into an assisted living. He is currently staying with the son's family, but their dog is not happy that James is there, so James needs a new furever home asap. James is up to date on vaccines, neutered and healthy. His only issues are that he has some allergies and some anxiety which he is on meds for and which has done wonders for him. James is great with other dogs, cats and kids, James was wee wee pad trained as his elderly owner could not walk him frequently enough so you would have to continue putting a pad down till you are sure he is fully trained again to only go outside and used to your schedule. He is very very good about only going on the pad and not anywhere else. James would do great in a home with a retired person, work from home person or someone that works part time as he just loves to be with people. If you are interested in adopting James please fill out an application at this link: http://www.bichonrescuenj.com/bichon-frise-rescue-nnj-adoption-app.html If you have already filled out an app with OUR rescue in the past, email me at nnjBichonRescue@yahoo.com and let me know you are interested and I will look up your app by your email address. Please note: you should live a reasonable driving distance from upstate NY (Rochester) where James is currently ...so anywhere within a 175-200 mile radius of Rochester would be considered.

      rescue
      Breed: Bichon Frise
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bichon Frise (short coat). Lady is a 10 year old Bichon, up to date on vaccines, sweet and loves both adults and kids alike. She is good with other small dogs her size but can be a bit excited when first meeting them. She may bark at Large dogs. She has never been tested with cats. She loves to sleep in your room at night or in bed with you. She will follow you around everywhere. She is still rather active and playful for a 10 year old and loves to play outside. Her mom has lost her home and has run out of time trying to find an apartment that accepts pets. So she was forced to take a place where pets were not allowed in order to secure a home for her and her kids. Lady is healthy with the exception that she gets hot spots which the vet has prescribed a medicated spray for when she gets them. She is house trained and will stand by the door when she wants to go out for potty. She may have an occasional accident if you do not pick up on her cues or take her out at least 3 times a day (her family used to walk her 2 times a day and let her out in the yard any other time she needed to go) If you are interested in adopting Lady or even fostering her in the hopes of adoption or till another home can be found, please fill out an application at this link: http://www.bichonrescuenj.com/bichon-frise-rescue-nnj-adoption-app.html If you have already filled out an app with OUR rescue in the past, email me at nnjBichonRescue@yahoo.com and let me know you are interested and I will look up your app. Please note: you should live within 3 hours driving distance of NJ to adopt from our rescue.

      Ziggy

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Poochon
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bichon Frise / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (short coat). Ziggy is a very sweet & affectionate Poo-chon (Bichon & Miniature Poodle Mix), Age 12, neutered, up to date on Vaccines, teeth cleaned & microchipped. He is good with kids and lived with a Cat. He is good around other dogs, but has not lived with one. His only issue is he has separation anxiety when left all alone and will bark and cry. His family just moved into an apt in Brooklyn and signed a lease they can't get out of, and the neighbors have been complaining to the landlord that he barks all day when they our out at work and school. They sadly have to give up Ziggy after having him for 12 years, and we need to find him a home with someone that either works from home, is a stay at home mom or retired person or couple looking for a very affectionate dog that loves to give kisses and cuddle next to you all the time. (As you can see from the photos... he loves to be right next to you and loves children too. Won't someone give this wonderful boy a furever home? He would be a GREAT dog for retirees! If you would like to adopt Ziggy please fill out an application at this link: http://www.bichonrescuenj.com/bichon-frise-rescue-nnj-adoption-app.html If you have already filled out an application at OUR Rescue already, then email me at NNJBichonRescue@yahoo.com with your email address used in the app and I will look it up. All adopters will need to submit to a virtual or in person home check, and vet reference checks. You need to live within 3 hours drive of the NYC/Northern NJ area to qualify. Some exceptions will be considered from farther as long as you are willing to drive to come get him
