We are Josie and Jodie, two 11 month old Bichon/Maltese pups. Our foster parents said to tell you that I, Josie, am a cute bundle of love and playful energy and that Jodie is a sweet and gentle cuddlebug. We weigh about 10.6 and 10.5 pounds respectively now and are almost fully grown – so we won’t be quite as big as most bichons are supposed to be.
I am happy romping around playing with doggie toys or snuggling with Jodie. I also like to try to wrestle with my doggy foster sister. Dad says sometimes it’s a three ring circus at our house. Mom says that Jodie and I like to play with one another and that I’m the “initiator. She says that when we are finished with all that ‘play stuff’, we lie down quietly and take a nap together- happy to have worn off some of our puppy energy!)
Dad says I’m more of the “explorer dog” type – and that the back yard is a perfect place for me to do that. He says that both of us like to hang out in his office while he works (and we snuggle) then we give doggy kisses because both of us LOVE to be with people!) Oh and there is something REALLY cute that we both do! (Well, there are actually LOTS of cute things we do but (drum roll please!) we like to watch dogs on TV! We will sit for minutes on end to watch any dog that happens to be on any channel. We cock our heads and listen for all we are worth (and that’s a lot!) Mom and Dad think that we are super smart, too.
Now for my sister, Jodie…Mom says she is a sweet little angel and that she has the cutest ways about her. If you sit down to read a book or watch TV, Jodie will curl up next to you and stay there forever. Dad says that Jodie has a very sweet and playful spirit – and if you meet her in person, you will fall in love with her big brown eyes and all they communicate. Well, I think she’s pretty cute too but I don’t know that her eyes are more expressive than mine, Come on now, Dad.
When Bichon FurKids found us we were pretty scared, very skinny and were terribly matted as well. We had somehow survived living on the streets- despite how little we are! Now Jodie and I are brave, not scared, and our hair is growing back beautifully (after being shaved quite a bit). We are drinking good water and eating good food! (Mom says no table scraps) and we have a yard to run and sun in and doggy foster siblings to play with if we choose. And we are smart and SO want to please! We mastered the doggy door already and know to go outside to do our ‘business’, then come in and sit nicely for a treat!
Because we are young and have a lot of exciting new things to learn, we need people to teach us. Once we are adopted, Bichon FurKids also wants us to attend doggy obedience class so we can be the bestest little pups in the world.
Our Ideal Home:
- Someone home most of the time
- An active family with kids age 7 or older – other youngish FurKids are ok too!
- A family committed to training and further socializing us
- A consistent and loving environment
- Must have yard and sun to play in
- Recent experience with a young, active pup a plus
- Previous experience as a doggy parent
- Have had dogs as an adult
We have been through SO much together that we must also be adopted together- so if you are interested in meeting us, please complete our adoption application and we’ll be in touch.
Tail wags and cuddles,
Josie and Jodie
