Review for Bichons and Buddies, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Almost 6 years ago, I went searching for a dog for my 90 year old mother who was in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. My dad was very ill, at the end of his life and she was lonely and had been asking for a pup for a long time. I made it my mission to find just the right dog to fit in with my ailing dad, his aides and my mom. In my search, I found Jeanine Curcione and Bichons and Buddies. I realized that we were not necessarily the average rescue applicant but Jeanine took on the challenge. When I discovered her website, she had just posted an impassioned plea about rescuing older dogs. That's exactly what I was looking for. An older dog who was trained, housebroken, good on a leash with a wonderful personality. I found Maury! 9.5 yo bichon who was an owner surrender. He was everything we were looking for and more. The absolute perfect fit! When my dad passed away, I moved in with my mom and brought my two cats with me. Maury took it all in stride and loved every one of us. We loved him back and for 5.5 years he brought pure joy and happiness into our lives.
Jeanine Curcione is the most caring, unselfish, giving, thoughtful woman who truly cares about the pups she rescues and the homes she places them in. This is the most worthwhile charity.
