Checkers (22-023 D)   

In shelter Dog

St Johns, MI, 48879
Pet name:
Checkers (22-023 D)
Bichon Frise
White / Cream
Checkers is a sensitive and goofy senior who is looking for his forever person. He loves to cuddle and wants to be loved, but he does have his crazy moments. He is good with dogs, but would prefer a home without cats ... he likes to chase them. He prefers his person most. He has some separation anxiety and would do best in an adult home where his person is available (retired or working remotely) to give him the patience, security and love he deserves. He prefers women and is anxious around men. Could you be that person?

Checkers does have Cushings disease and will need to be on medication for the rest of his life. He also needs a senior or reducing diet as Cushings causes weight gain. He has allergies and needs an allergy shot every 4 to 6 weeks. He is up to date on all shots and preventatives. Being part Bichon, he also needs a groom every 6-8 weeks to avoid matting.

Happy Feet Pet Rescue (Lansing, MI) is a foster-based rescue which means each of our animals are in home environments. We strive to pair each of our rescue animals up with the most appropriate homes. Our adoption process involves an adoption phone interview, reference checks, vet checks, an application review, and meet and greets. We do not adopt any dogs that are expected to be over 50lbs to anyone living in an apartment/condo setting. We do not believe in declawing cats, and we only adopt our cats as indoor cats. We do not have a physical building that you can visit. If you are interested in meeting one of our pets, please complete an adoption application on our website: We do not respond to the Pet-finder Inquiry emails.
