BICHON FRISEThis is a small, happy dog that always has an inquisitive expression in it’s dark eyes. It has a plumed tail and is often compared to a cotton ball because of it’s curled double coat consisting of a textured outer coat and a silky under coat. The coat is white but may have a creamed or apricot color around the ears or on the body.

According to information provided by the American Kennel Club, The Bichon Frise appeared in the 13th century as a descendent from the Water Spaniel. Traded by Spanish sailors and transported from continent to continent, the breed eventually became a favorite of those in the 16th century French royal courts. The breed was also favored by the painters of the Spanish school, who often included them in their works. Although the breed’s colorful past includes use as a circus dog, today the Bichon is enjoyed primarily as a companion animal.

The Bichon is a gentle dog . He’s also playful and loves exercise. He loves to fetch his dog toys and enjoys being played with often. They are also very good dogs for allergy sufferers because they don’t shed. Their hair keeps growing and must be groomed regularly.
