We are Donny and Marie, a pair of two year old bichon siblings who are as cute and bonded as we can be. Our foster parents said to tell you that I, Marie, am an outgoing, loving and cuddle-seeking pup and that Donny is a shy, somewhat inquisitive and gentle ‘baby brother.’
We weigh 14 and 16 pounds respectively. Even though Donny’s a ‘bit’ bigger than I am, Mom says I look after him – and he relies on me to know that he’s safe. We eat out of the same dish, drink out of the same bowl and generally sleep next to one another. Mom says my devotion to Donny is endearing!
I’m more likely to be the one following Mom from room to room (with Donny following me) and I’m the first one to approach new people with a shy smile and an open heart, as well as expressive big brown eyes! I give very soft gentle kisses that show I appreciate how wonderful my new life is. Dad says that I love anyone who gives me attention and that I like to cuddle with anyone ,big or small. I’m a darling little girl waiting to snuggle and so cute you’ll find me hard to resist.
As for my brother Donny, Mom says he is a sweet and shy guy whose personality is just now starting to ‘emerge’ and who has the cutest ways about him. Donny is curious about everything and is a first class ‘observer.’ (Mom says he likes to carefully watch the world around him.) He makes great eye contact, has the softest coat you will ever, ever want to pet, is super gentle and loyal with a capital L! Whatever I do, Donny wants to also do. While he is still more shy, with a little bit of coaxing Donny is becoming more brave and confident every day.
Both of us like to dance on our hind legs and wag our tails to show how happy we are. We also love, love, love to cuddle in the Big People’s bed ‘cause Life is Good!
Now you’ve probably figured out that we’re both good about the snuggling part. We love to be cuddled separately of course, and to also snuggle with each other. We don’t understand why, other than feeding us, Mom and Dad would want to do anything else!
We are working on being completely potty trained and are almost there. I, Marie, like my walks and rides in the car. Donny is learning about leashes and walks. We are both curious about the world and have shown an ‘interesting side’ to our foster family. You see, we are pretty amazing at climbing. Fences that no other pup even considered scaling we have mastered. Having proven that we could do that once, we tried and have succeeded again. Dad has added fencing where he never thought it would be necessary. And no other FurKid has ever done what we have done! As a result, our BFK Aunties are looking for an amazingly secure environment from which we cannot escape because we’re curious enough to try!
Our Ideal Home:
- Someone home most of the time
- Adults or a family with kids over 12
- Other FurKids are fine
- A VERY secure environment, preferably with 7 feet tall fences (not with wrought iron) or a townhome
- Have had dogs as an adult
- Recent/current dog experience
- Rescue dog experience a plus!
Mom says that our forever home will be very special — because it will have two of the sweetest FurKids in the world living inside. And our family says that anyone who meets us will be happier for the experience.
So if you are interested in meeting the two of us, (please know that we can only be adopted together) complete our adoption application — and we’ll be in touch.
Bichon smiles and waves,
Devoted and Darling Donny, Memorable and Magnetic Marie
