Sylvia Melville, NY 1/30/2011 7:15:37 AM I, too, got involved with the wonderful Small Paws Rescue and am fostering a senior Bichon who was rescued from a puppy mill in ALA. He came to me scared of everything and everyone. He is now a very loving guy and much loved. That made me a 2 Bichon family. Then Small Paws put out an SOS that they rescued 44 dogs from a hoarder in OK and I fell in love at first sight with them all. I quickly adopted one of them, a 3 year old Bichon who was just as scared as my foster. I am now training her to do agility but she is so very shy. I am working at building up her self-confidence and know I will succeed with her. My Bichons are all beautiful and loving and I thank Small Paws every day for the wonderful work they continue to do.
