Big personality in one fluffy little body – meet MICKEY ROONEY! This Bichon mix just got his hair did and is looking FRESH for potential new adopters. MICKEY can be a quirky little dude but overall is quite adaptive to most situations. He would be fine living in an apartment but wouldn’t say no to a huge house with his own room either. He enjoys his walks but because he suffers from Disc Disease he is limited to low impact exercise – this means absolutely no jumping, running or rough-housing. If he does any of this he could have a flare up and will need pain and anti-inflammatory meds. If you have high furniture you should consider a set of little stairs for him to go up and down, for reals. He’s the perfect size to be a lap dog which is awesome because you’re going to want to sit there touching those fluffy clouds he calls ears all day long. MICKEY is from LA but doesn’t have any of that superstar attitude – he’s just happy to follow you around the house all day like puppy paparazzi. He can be a little nervous around big crowds and will steal food off your plate if you turn your back, but pretty sure that’s your own fault. MICKEY is very affectionate but should only go to a home with older kids, like 10 years and up. Overall he has a great temperament, playful and curious when the time is right and A+ cuddle buddy when you need him to be. He’s house trained, good on leash and working on basic commands in foster care. He’s good with other dogs but doesn’t care for cats – they’re always trying to groom him and mess up hair.
