Bichon Frise

Nothing comes between a girl and her shoes. Except maybe Puppy Spot who delivered me to this nice family who got me all of these nice shoes. The whole process was smooth, informative, and overall a very pleasant process. If you want a high quality puppy like me, this is where to find them.

Bichon Frise Characteristics

Bichon Frise will have no problem being your happiest and most enthusiastic furry companion. They’re an energetic, playful, and smart breed that is loved by all. With its smiling face and charming attitude, this breed is a perfect introduction to dog ownership for beginner dog parents and apartment dwellers alike.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

Often mistaken for Teacup Poodles, the Bichon Frise typically stands at around 9-11 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh between 7-11 pounds.  Often with white, black, or brown coats, Bichons are rumored to have originated in the Mediterranean and to have been taken along on trade routes into other countries. Despite their small stature, they're not classified as a Toy breed by the AKC; instead, they're members of the Non-Sporting Group.

 

Because they don't shed like other breeds, Bichons often are recommended for people with allergies. You may want to consult a doctor before purchasing one, however, because not everyone reacts the same way to a Bichon's hair. Like other small breeds, Bichon's can be trained easily to perform well at agility, obedience, and other competitions. This breed also excels in therapy work due to its gentle nature and doll-like appearance.

 

Many people are likely to overprotect their Bichon Frise due to their size and cuddly nature, but this can ultimately make your dog more fearful and spoiled. It’s good to be mindful of dangerous situations that your dog might be in, but allowing your dog to navigate encounters with other dogs, animals, and people without interfering unnecessarily will help instill your dog with confidence.

How dog-friendly is Oregon?

Super dog-friendly! Oregon is regularly ranked in the top five best states for pets. Two of the best review sites for pet safety and comfort are Pawsafe and Safewise. Both give Oregon excellent marks. 


Pawsafe’s study examined each state according to some pet-friendly metrics. They evaluated things like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.


In the Pawsafe study, Oregon ranked as the 4th most pet-friendly state in the country. The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws, which related to animal abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


In their own separate study, Safewise also ranked Oregon as the 4th most pet-friendly state, for many of the same factors. Combining these two studies puts Oregon at the front of the pack of pet-friendly states!

Are cities in Oregon pet-friendly?

Consumer review site Wallethub has an extensive survey of the 100 largest cities in the country and then ranks them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how a few Oregon cities did.

Portland

In a Trust for Public Land (TPL) study that ranks cities for dog parks per capita, Portland ranked 2nd on the list at 5.4 per 100,000 residents.
