Yep he sure was. The entire litter and the parents were turned in to a local shelter. Then they made it over to Maryland Bichon Frise Rescue. They said he was a full bichon and charged the hell...o outta me cause of it. As a matter of fact when I told the woman who fostered him that Zoes former owner wanted $350 for her she told me that was a ridiculous amount to pay for pup that wasn't full breed.
So then I get a copy of the original paperwork from the original shelter so that I can give it to my vet, and the original owners - the people who bred the litter - listed them as PooChons aka poodle/bichon mixes. Really upset me off and I got into a huge email fight with about 7 people from the rescue. I told them to give me half my money back since he was only half bichon. I am so angry with them but it seems I was screwed and not much I can do about it.
