Introducing Baymax (aka Dalang), an adorable one-year-old Bichon who is looking for his forever home. He may be shy at first, but with a little patience, he warms up quickly and is the sweetest dog you’ll ever meet. As a former puppy mill rescue, he’s learning how to live in a home and be a part of a family for the first time, so he needs someone who understands his needs and is willing to give him time to adjust.

Baymax loves to run off energy first thing in the morning, so he needs room to run and needs someone to play with him to burn off the energy.  He is small enough to be able to run around a house but he enjoys time outside if his human is with him. Once he gets a good 15 minutes of playtime, he keeps himself busy with his toys that he is just learning to play with or lounges around. He has never shown any aggression, even when out of his comfort zone around kids and new people. He is still learning what he is and isn’t allowed to chew on, so this will be ongoing training he will need. Baymax needs someone who will be patient as he adapts to new surroundings.

Baymax sleeps in his crate at night and has done well in crate when his humans have to leave for a short time. His foster mom works from home, so we are unsure how he will do if left alone for long periods. He is still working on potty training and getting comfortable on a leash.

Baymax will do best in a home with calm and patient people who will give him time to warm up and explore at his own pace. Baymax gets skittish around big movements, such as a person moving fast or someone reaching out to pet him without him knowing, which is why he would do best in a home with kids who are 10 years or older. He is also skittish of loud and unfamiliar noises but once familiar with them he adjusts quite well.

We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a dog as a member of their family. Baymax is patiently waiting!
