Review for Bichons and Buddies, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Both of my dogs were rescued by Bichons And Buddies. I got Eddy Spaghetti first, he had been rescued from a high kill shelter by BnB and was sent to Victoria BC and Dog Bless rescue in the hopes of finding his forever home. She often sends her rescues to other trusted rescues around North America to broaden their chances of finding loving forever homes for them. When he was at the shelter in LA he was a mess, mange and no hair and scabs and even a black eye somehow. BnB got him all fixed up and healthy and when I got him I just fell IN LOVE. I am allergic to dogs but was determined to get a dog and a rescue dog at that. Which means I would be looking for a small, Maltese/poodle/terrier mutt type as those dogs are typically less allergenic. But there are not loads of organizations that specifically rescue these types. Hence I found Bichons and Buddies. Eddy was immediately absolutely my best friend and beloved fur baby of my whole family. He has traveled all over Canada, loves car rides, loves salmon, loves chilling in the dog buggy listening to 90’s hip hop and sleeps as close to your face as possible. But after 6 years of being an only child, we thought Eddy needed his own dog. And so we went to Bichons and Buddies to find the perfect dog for him. At first we were going to adopt a different dog, a little black one, but after getting to know that dog, Jeanine didn’t think it would be the right fit for our family, so that weekend she pulled a little girl mop from a high kill shelter named Twinkie with us in mind. After getting her all spayed and up to date on shots. She held her for us for 2 weeks before I could pick her up. Now named Apple, she is the total light of day, happy and crazy and hilarious and Eddy Spaghetti is OBSESSED with her. They ADORE each other. He taught her how to be a dog and they play like maniacs together, he protects her at the park and they cuddle and eat together and it’s actually so cute no one can handle it. Jeanine and Bichons and Buddies are THE BEST. She cares so much about the dogs he rescues and finding THE RIGHT people for them. Jeanine has worked for a very long time on her own hours with her own money to make life a beautiful thing for helpless scared animals and she works so so hard to make all these sad little dogs happy and healthy and find them homes where they will be treasured forever. Like mine. 1000 stars and 15 thumbs up. I recommend over over again to anyone that’s interested in rescuing a little dog.
