My name is Biscotti and I’m 13 pounds of cuteness and about 5 years old. My foster Mom says I’m spirited, loving, playful, loyal and very energetic! I’m amazing at playing fetch (I can play with my squeaky toys for hours!), give lots of puppy kisses in the morning and am known for my Bichon Buzz. (By the way I can throw my squeaky toys in the air while I’m buzzing. That’s quite amazing, don’t you think?)
Dad says I’m really smart! I’m housebroken, love to ride in the car and already know commands like “Sit”, “Stay” and “Paw” (He says that when he wants me to shake my paw.) Dad says I love my crate (he calls it a box) and sleep contentedly in it all through the night or chill out when he or Mom have to leave the house. I’m not destructive nor do I howl while you are gone because my crate is my safe place.
While I’m good with all people generally it does take me some time to get to know people initially. Older children are fine. I just don’t like being picked up by younger children or strangers (until I’m comfortable, that is.) Once I am, we can have a lot of fun because I’m very active and a LOT of fun! Mom says PRLONGED EXERCISE is “my thing”. I will need a family that will play with me as that what makes me happiest. And I also need a family that will keep working with me on boundaries – no nipping and no taking other dogs food. I’m responsive and easily corrected, but it does need to be done consistently.
Mom and Dad said I have built a special relationship with my doggy foster sister. She has a calm personality and is very confident. She is always willing to play with me when I want to — but also tells me when she is “done”. Mom says given how high energy I am, I would do best in a home with a very active family and a confident and happy doggy friend who likes to play. I may be only five years old but I’m very much a puppy at heart.
My Ideal Home:
- An active family
- Someone home most of the time
- Another active, confident and playful SMALL dog
- Kids at least 7 years old
- Have had dogs as an adult
- Recent/current dog experience
- Rescue dog experience a plus
I’m currently in my foster home in Southern California but may be moving to Northern California very soon.. So, if I sound like the right pup for you, please complete an application using the button below. I’ll look forward to hearing from you.
Bichon wags and kisses,
Breezy and Bright Biscotti
