Bichon Frise

Bichon Frise


Height: 9-12 inches

Weight: 10-14 lbs.

Life Span: 12-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Companion Dogs

Overview
The bichon frise is gentle, playful, and affectionate and gets along with children and other animals.

It loves to please and so is an outstanding obedience-class student, though sometimes it has difficulty with house training. This is an ideal dog for the city or suburbs, for the young or elderly.

Appearance
The undercoat is soft and dense, the outercoat coarser and curlier. The combination of the two feels like plush or velvet and springs back when patted. Coat color is white, possibly with shades of buff, cream, or apricot on the ears.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The bichon frise requires extensive daily brushing to avoid an unkempt, matted appearance. Professional grooming every eight to twelve weeks is recommended.

The bichon frise requires only a few leisurely walks around the block and some playtime daily.

Origins
The bichon frise originated in the Mediterranean area in the Middle Ages, but its ancestry is not known. A favorite of European royalty, it was bred to be an ideal companion.

Special Alerts
It is especially important to obtain a bichon frise from a reputable breeder.

Breed-related health concerns: patellar luxation, epilepsy, dental problems.
