Meet Murphy - Bichon/Poodle Mix Boy looking for a "furever" home!


If you are looking for a new companion for the coming new year, you might want to consider my buddy, Murphy, who is currently living at Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue in Mukwonago, WI, while waiting to find his "furever" home.

Murphy came to Bichon Rescue as an owner surrender.  He was one scared little boy when he first arrived and wasn't sure he wanted to be taken out for a walk.  After working with him, he has turned into a friendly, happy little fellow who now is just waiting to go out for walks.  First thing he does when he sees one of us volunteers come into the rescue is grab one of his stuffed toys and stands up by his door wiggling his butt to go out.  He LOVES going for walks and will sit on command if you have a treat for him.  He is 7 years old, but acts more like a 2 year old!  He would love to be in a loving home in the new year!! He has such a cute face...big brown eyes.  

If you are interested in learning more about Murphy or some of the other rescue dogs available for adoption at Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue in Mukwonago, WI., click on the links below.  The first link will take you to MURPHY'S page, and the second link will take you to Bichon's web page.

New handknit fiber necklace with lampwork glass leaf focal bead

with matching Swarovski crystal earrings - Only $24.00

Swarovski Crystal Matching Earrings

I just added this beautiful, necklace/earring set to my DZFANTASY shop on ARTFIRE to try and raise money for an organization very dear to my heart, BICHON AND LITTLE BUDDIES RESCUE in Mukwonago, WI, where I have been volunteering for the past 2 years.

I will be adding other new original designed necklaces and earrings in the upcoming weeks with hopes to raise enough money to be able to help pay for the surgery of this new little buddy who recently came to the rescue. Medical care is one of the big expenses facing the rescue, when they try to do what is very best for all the little dogs and cats that come to them looking to find their forever homes.

I donate 100% of all sales made with my DZFANTASY art both on ARTFIRE and my work sold through the BLUE HERONE ARTISAN'S GALLERY in Port Washington, WI. 

Below is information from Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue about Twill and her upcoming surgery.

Twill was examined by a vet today and she has inaugural hernias. They are very large and she is lucky they haven't caused her any issues in the past. We will be having surgery done at Bay View Veterinary Clinic in Mukwonago, WI next Wed. This will be a tough surgery, but she is such a sweetie she deserves to get healthy. If you have a little extra money we could use the donation to help pay for her surgery. Our paypal link can be found at http://www.bichonrescues.comwishlist.html or you can call the vet at 262-363-9993 and donate directly to our vet account. We thank you and Twill thanks you for wanting to make her feel better.
Be sure to pay a visit to my DZFANTASY shop on ARTFIRE to see what other items are available for purchase and which will help the "little buddies" at Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue.  The Seahorse Necklace below is another new item in my shop.



Thanks for visiting DZFANTASY.  If you  have any questions please feel free to contact me...Donna at
