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

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.
