  • Very treat motivated

  • Not a picky eater - will gobble up plain kibble

  • Walks well on a leash (harness is recommended for all our dogs)

  • Has not been with cats under our care so we don't know how she is with them; however she saw one from afar at our vet's office and she was interested

  • Lives in a home with parrots and doesn't pay attention to them.

  • Currently being housetrained using the crate training method.  Vienne does not know how to ask to go out since her foster mom who has many dogs from shelters in her home  takes them out all together in her backyard several times a day to go potty and doesn't wait for each one to individually ask to go out.

  • Bichon Frise/Miniature Poodle

  • Hypoallergenic so perfect for someone wanting a non-shedding dog

  • Requires regular professional grooming.  If a Bichon/Poodle isn't groomed it easily gets matted which can be painful to the dog and cause "hot spots" leading to skin infections requiring the dog to take antibiotics to get cured. 

  • We had Vienne professionally groomed Nov 12th.

  • Silky soft coat

  • 18  months old

  • 10 lbs

  • Microchipped

  • Shots up to date

  • Vienne is very allergic to fleas.  Her previous owner did not put flea preventative medication on her.  This caused Vienne to lick her back towards her tail to relieve itching caused by the fleas.  Right now Vienne has orange hair on her back towards her tail because a dog's saliva turns white hair orange.  Vienne's not itching anymore since she's been given flea preventative medication and has no more fleas.  No further treatment is needed just give her flea medication regularly.  Her orange hair will come in white so she'll be snow white all over!

  • All medical paperwork provided

  • Respectful children 10 and up

  • San Diego County residents only

  • Adoption fee $450
