Hello, my name is Jacinda! I am a beautiful adult female Bichon Frise who not only has a fun, bright and inquisitive personality but I am eager to learn all sorts of new things!

My favorite hobbies include laying in the sun, lounging in a dog bed, following my foster fur friends around the house and keeping track of my people. When I’m not busy with that I do like treat time and chewing on foster mom’s favorite shoes. What?! Oh yes, I did!! Heee heee! Foster mom has learned her lesson to clean up and now I have a wonderful toy box available.

My people wanted to share that I am a very smart girl and working hard on all the important dog skills. I am crate trained! I already know what “go potty” means and I’m doing great with going quickly outside.  I’m a very smart girl and a quick study so I’m confident that with continued patience, more practice and loving encouragement I will be a pro in no time!

I need more practice with leash training, and must always be leashed outside if my forever family doesn't have a fence. We are working on leash training, but why use the leash when I can chase around the fenced backyard! I am good with other dogs, so I have a fantastic time in the yard. There are so many things to see and smell!

My people want to share that I am a sweet and gentle girl – and a little shy. I get worried around strangers and look to my people for comfort. I know with time and a routine I will come out of my shell and we will be best friends! I would be the perfect lapdog once we get to know each other. 

Anyway, I really am an incredibly delightful girl who wants nothing more than to find a patient and unconditionally furever family who is looking for an amazing companion! I promise that MY love is forever, and I will fill a void in your life that you never knew existed!! Love, Jacinda 

**Grooming - this dog's coat may have been neglected before arriving at Underdog and it can sometimes take months to get their coat healthy as poodles and poodle mixes require daily brushing. Underdog Rescue cannot guarantee the non-shedding or hypoallergenic qualities of this dog.

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
