Please fill out the adoption application at if you are interested in meeting one of our dogs.

Shawna and ChiChi were transferred from another facility so we dont have a background or history. These two are adorable puppies who will need to learn all the things humans are supposed to teach their puppies like housetraining, walking on a leash, and what not to chew. They are friendly, happy, social and playful pups who are ready to start their adventures with a new family. Fill out the pre-adoption application and we will set up a time for you to meet them. If their listing is still online, then we are still accepting applications to try to find the perfect homes for them. We are not looking for a home for them together as adopting littermates can cause issues down the road, so you can come meet them and adopt the little girl that steals your heart.

We do our best to evaluate the dogs while they are with us, but they sometimes act different in the shelter environment than they do in a home. Many times we do not know the actual breed/mix or age of the dog, in that case we use our best guess as to breed and age.

The adoption procedures are listed below. Priority is given to potential adopters who fill out the application on our website. If a listing is on the adoption websites, we are still accepting applications. The listing is removed once we have received a sufficient number of applications or the pet leaves the shelter.

Adoption Procedures:

1. Completely fill out the pre-adoption application at Any missing information may have us moving onto another application.

2. If you application is approved, we will contact you to come meet the adoptables that you are interested in.

3. If it is a match, you will complete the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee. Please be prepared to take your adopted pet home when you come meet him/her. In most cases, you will be able to take the pet home the same day.

4. If you have filled out an application and we havent contacted you within a week, we may have missed your application, the pet may have been adopted by another applicant, or you may have been missing information on your application. You may contact us to find out the status of your application at this time. Please give us a week to process your application before contacting us!

The adoption fee through Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue is $200 - $500 depending on the age of the dog, which includes Wi State Sales Tax. Included in this fee is your new companion who will be spayed/neutered, have a current Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (as required by state law), current on age appropriate vaccinations, heartworm tested (if old enough) and started on preventative, microchipped, and given a general wormer. Other medical needs will also have been taken care of, such as dentals and treating ear infections.

To assist you and your new pet in adjusting to life together, you may chose to take an 8 week age appropriate obedience training course at For Pets Sake Dog Training in Mukwonago, WI for $75 (up to $230 value). You may opt to take Puppy Kindergarten, Adult Beginners, or Small Dogs Big Hearts. You must register for the class within 90 days of adoption for the reduced fee. For more information on the classes visit

All dogs are seen BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Bichon and Little Buddies is run by volunteers who have full time jobs in addition to the hours they spend with the rescue dogs. Having an application on file assures us that the potential adopter is really interested in adopting a dog. It also assists us in placing dogs in homes where both the dog and new owners are happy. The application puts you under no obligation to adopt a dog from Bichon and Little Buddies.

The Dog Pre-Adoption Application can be found at

Thanks for thinking about adopting your new pet!More important information:

***We are a Wisconsin based rescue and do not ship our pets. If you are considering adoption you must be willing to drive to meet and adopt the pet, as well as bring the pet back to us if the adoption doesnt work. We adopt primarily in WI and IL, but will consider applicants in MN, IA, and MI.***

***Please do not set up an appointment to meet the animals until you are ready to take your pet home. If the meeting results in a match, you can often take the dog/cat home the same day or within a couple days if the medical care hasnt been completed. We are not able to hold pets for adopters beyond this time. Thanks for understanding.***

***While we hope all of our adoptions lead to permanent homes for the animals we place, sometimes things just dont work out. We do have a 30 day trial period. For the first 30 days, if you or Bichon and Little Buddies decide that the adoption isnt a good match for either the humans or the pet, the adoption fee will be refunded minus $75 within 30 days of the return of the dog. Bichon and Little Buddies also requires adopters to return the pet to us at any time that they are unable or unwilling to care for the animal anymore.***

***We do not show dogs without an appointment. The first step in adoption is filling out the pre-adoption application at Please do not call/email until AFTER you have filled out an application.***

Bichon and Little Buddies is a State Licensed Rescue # 268555-DS
