  • LOCATION:  Derby
  • I am a small size Bichon Frise, rescued from China and I am approximately 9 months old,
  • I was very scared when I arrived in foster care, but  I am slowly improving each day and my confidence is growing all the time.  I am still very nervous when outside, and will need help, time and patience to encourage me to walk on a harness and lead, and begin to explore the big wide world.
  • I love lots of fuss and attention and love to sit on my foster mum’s knee.
  • I currently live with 2 Romania foster siblings and I get on with them just fine
  • I love to play with them, and also love to play with my toys
  • I am looking for a home where someone is around most of the time, and who can continue to build my confidence.
  • I am fine being left for reasonable periods of time
  • Because I am nervous outside, I am looking for a home with another confident, playful young dog of a similar size for me to continue to learn from and show me that there is nothing to be scared of
  • I have a good appetite and enjoy my food and treats.
  • I sleep in a bed in my own room, with puppy pads and a stair gate and I settle fine.  My foster doggie friends sleep on the other side of the gate in their beds, so I can see them.
  • I am currently not house trained because I am so nervous to go outside, so I toilet on puppy pads, but with a little time and patience I will soon be more confident outside,  My foster mum takes me outside each day and I am getting a little better, but would still need work in this area.
  • I travel well in the car with no issues at all.
  • I am fine around children, but any resident or visiting children would need to aged 7+
  • I am microchipped, vaccinated and neutered
  • I am currently in a foster home in Derby.
