Review for Bichons and Buddies, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Bichons and Buddies changed our lives 7 years ago! We decided to adopt a dog during a disappointing time of not being able to have kids. We went first to another organization, found a dog we loved, applied, waited two weeks while preparing and getting excited, then found out they picked someone else! So I saw Happy’s picture ( then named “Cookie”) on the Bichons and Buddies website, and we drove up to meet her. Staff was so friendly and encouraging, different from our other experience where we were asked to prove why we were good enough to adopt a dog. We met Happy and fell in love, their description of her personality on the website matched perfectly. We expected to apply and wait as we had before, but one hour after we arrived, we drove home with Happy! She went to work with me each day for a long time and the atmosphere in the office became much more stress free! She’s been the most gentle, loving, affectionate dog and the perfect companion for our two kids who eventually came along. We are so thankful to Bichons and Buddies for rescuing her!
