Bichonpoo Characteristics

Bichonpoo's come from Poodle and Bichon Frise parents. You might also hear them called Bichon Poodles, Bichpoos, Poochons, and Bichon Poo as two separate words. These dogs are delightful companions who were able to inherit some of the best traits from their parents, including intelligence, affection, and high spirits. Early socialization and obedience training will ensure a well-behaved companion.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Bichonpoo was originally bred as a companion dog for people who are allergic to animals. The Bichonpoo was also meant to be a small breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Bichon Frise or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding. Because this is a newer breed, they can come in several varying sizes, rather than a predictable size like more established breeds.
 
Standing anywhere between 9-15 inches and weighing between 6 and 17 pounds, the Bichonpoo is a very portable companion. Great for apartment living, these dogs have a medium amount of energy, and if their barking habit can be quelled, they're the perfect dog to have in a small space. 
 
Like their parents, Bichonpoos are incredibly smart and alert dogs. They’re curious, active, and fun to be around, with very distinct personalities. Knowing you’re the alpha will help them feel safe and calm. They can also be quite acrobatic and are fun to play with. 
 
Like with any pet, be sure to take your Bichonpoo to the vet regularly, and focus especially on dental checkups. They can have crowding in their teeth and other dental issues. Taking good care of their health will keep them safe and happy for years!
 

How dog-friendly is Mississippi?

Mississippi has a ton of pet owners and dog lovers in the state! But a few factors consistently put Mississippi in the bottom or middle of the pack compared to the most pet-friendly states. The main issue is Mississippi’s somewhat lax approach to animal welfare laws. 


Animal advocacy and shelter group Pawsafe ranks Mississippi 48th overall for pet-friendliness. Definitely some room for improvement! 


They arrived at their state ranking through a study evaluating each of the 50 states by important factors like animal cruelty restrictions, pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. As we mentioned, the main issue for Mississippi is its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


A separate study by review site Safewise ranks Mississippi as 32nd. A little bit better! However, if we combine the two studies, Mississippi still ranks towards the bottom of the pack.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Mississippi

Here’s a positive note: BringFido lists Mississippi as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also lists Ocean Springs Beach and the Biloxi Shrimping Trip as popular dog-friendly attractions.


Another strength in the state is a ton of pet owners! Fifty-one percent of Mississippi residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 


What kinds of dogs do Mississippians love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Mississippi are Labradors, Beagles, and German Shepherds. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Basset Hounds, and Retrievers. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Mississippi

Mississippi saved 41,290 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 5,417 animals were killed over this same period. 


Nineteen out of 64 of the animal shelters within Mississippi are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 80%. This is well short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see some improvement in these numbers in the coming years!
