Description: The Bichon Frise is a small, sturdy dog whose merry temperament is evident by their plumed tail carried jauntily over their back. The Bichon's coat puffs out all over, rather than hanging down. They are slightly larger than a Maltese. Bichon Frises love to be the center of attention and are always eager to please. Bichons are perky, playful and friendly to all. They are affectionate, responsive, and are apt to cuddling. They make a delightful and amusing companion. Used in the show ring often, their coats require much grooming and intricate care to maintain the accepted puffy appearance. The Bichon is also free of skin problems, as many small white-haired dogs are not. Gentle-mannered, sensitive, and very playful the Bichon Frise is good with children and other pets.

Special Needs: Grooming, socialization, and training
