    Great story. Bichon's are awesome dogs. And i say this as I prefer large dogs. But I have a bichon and it is a great dog … super easy and super smart.

    Hits home: I'm fostering a 6 week old kitten right now. Found it flea infested, infected eyes, and horribly malnurished. Now he's happy, healthy, and LOVES people. Next week Monte goes to his permanent home!

    I've been following these guys for a while on Facebook… Quite a legit rescue group. He needs to teach his techniques, so others can do this around the country.

    I truly hope there's a special circle in hell for people who treat animals poorly. God Bless Fiona, and all the animals like her who haven't been rescued yet!

    PS – I think Fiona has earned a KCCO t-shirt! You have them for dogs, right? If you don't, you definitely should!

    My dog this last summer passed away. She was, we believe, 13 and we rescued her when she was 2. We found her at a pretty awesome spot. In my area in Maryland so many animal shelters were full to capacity and often won't take any animal without knowing they already have had shots or other seemingly random things to expect from a stray or unwanted animal. But a group of people set up "foster" homes for animals where they'd take as many as they could and give them a temporary home. We found Missie, our beagle, in one of these homes where she was living with about 6 other dogs. The caretaker told us her story, how she and her littermates when they were still puppies were raised to be hunting dogs but then tied up and abandoned. How only Missie survived. Under normal circumstances she would of been put down long before we found her. They way I look at it, we gave her 11 wonderful years she otherwise never would of gotten if not for my family rescuing her, and the awesome program that rescued her from a shelter too. She was always timid, but the sweetest dog ever.

    #6 It's too bad that the laws aren't very good when it comes to animal cruelty. How someone could do that to any animal is simply beyond me.

    While we all recognize how awesome it was that someone helped her, I'm sure that no soul appreciates it more than that little dog.
