Posted Breed: Bichon Frise (medium coat). See my video: || DOB: August 2011 || BREED/COLORING: Purebred white Bichon Frise (with natural tail) || SIZE: CeeDee weighs about 10lbs and is full grown || HISTORY: CeeDee was found in Valencia after being attacked by a coyote and taken to Castaic Shelter. The shelter sent him to a private vet for treatment of several bite wounds. When we saw him he was in a lot of pain and scared - so we got him out of the shelter so that he could heal both physically and emotionally. He has been with us several months and is all healed and needs a home. || PERSONALITY: CeeDee is a very sweet and needy little boy... but he takes a little time to get to know people. He's not a fan of strangers, so he will need slow introduction to new people. Once he knows you, he will want to be next to you all of the time. He does not like to be alone. || TRAINING: CeeDee seems to be housebroken but will need some training. He walks great on leash but does not potty well on leash. || WOULD DO BEST: CeeDee would do best in an adult-only home that doesn't leave him home alone too much... He needs a yard or outdoor space where he can potty off-leash. || CATS/DOGS/KIDS: CeeDee does well with some dogs and seems to be great with cats - but he is not recommended for children. || VET RECORD :All of our dogs are currently vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. There will be no residual medical concerns once his wounds heal - he will be back to 100%. || AVAILABILITY: This dog is available for adoption now and is being fostered or kenneled in the San Fernando Valley area. Please email us and we will send you an adoption application. Local adoptions only. || Visit our website: || Visit us on Facebook: || Make a donation to help us continue to save lives:

More About Bichon Frise Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.
