The Bichon Frise is a small, white dog with a curly coat. Originally from the Mediterranean region, the Bichon was a popular companion for sailors and traders. The Bichon Frise was also popular among nobles in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and became known as the “royal dog of France.” In the 18th century, the breed fell out of favor at the French court, but it remained a favorite among common people. The Bichon came to America in the early 20th century, and it has since become one of the most popular toy breeds.

Today, the breed is known for its happy disposition and loves to be around people. Despite their small size, Bichons are quite active and need regular exercise. They are also intelligent dogs and can be trained to perform tricks and tasks. While they do not need a lot of grooming, their coat does require regular brushing to prevent matting. Overall, Bichons make wonderful companions and bring joy to any home.

Bichon Puppies Temperament

The Bichon Frise is a small, lively dog breed that is known for its playful and friendly temperament. One of the most appealing things about this breed is their ability to get along well with both people and other animals. They are also very intelligent and trainable, making them a great choice for families with young children or first-time dog owners.

It’s important to note that Bichons can be quite independent, so they may not be the best breed for someone looking for a lapdog that will always be by their side. In short, the Bichon Frise makes an ideal pet for those looking for a loving and low-key companion.

Bichon Frise Puppy Health Considerations

Though generally very happy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 12-14 years — our Bichon Frise puppies are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Bichons. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones.

Bichon Frise puppies are at a somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  •    Allergies
  •    Epilepsy
  •    Hip dysplasia
  •    Seizures
  •    Cataracts

Some of the most common health concerns for this breed include allergies, epilepsy, and hip dysplasia. Allergies are relatively common in dogs, and this breed is no exception. The most common type of allergy seen in this breed is atopy, which is an allergic reaction to environmental irritants such as pollen or dust mites. Epilepsy is also fairly common in Bichons, and affected dogs may experience seizures. Hip dysplasia is a condition that can occur in any breed of dog, but it is especially prevalent in small breeds like the Bichon Frise. This condition occurs when the hip joint does not develop properly, leading to pain and lameness. Fortunately, there are treatments available for all of these conditions, and many Bichon enjoy long and healthy lives despite these health concerns.

With some basic knowledge of the breed’s health concerns, you can be sure to give your Bichon Frise the best possible chance at a long and healthy life. Finding a Bichon puppy for sale from a reputable breeder can also dramatically — although, not eliminate — the risk of your dog developing some of these conditions. At Keystone Puppies, we work exclusively with experienced breeders who are committed to producing healthy & happy pups.

Bichon Puppies Coat & Coat Care

Bichons are known for their fluffy white coats! Their coat is made up of two types of hair – a soft, downy undercoat and a coarser outercoat. The outercoat protects the dog from the elements and helps to repel dirt and water. The undercoat insulates the dog against both heat and cold. The Bichon Frise is considered a hypoallergenic breed, which means that they are less likely to trigger allergies in people.

These pups need regular grooming to keep their coats in good condition, however, the frequency of grooming will depend on the individual dog’s coat type. Some Bichons only need to be brushed once a week, while others may require daily brushing. It’s also important to regularly trim the hair around the eyes and ears to prevent irritation. When it comes to coat care, the Bichon Frise is a high-maintenance breed – but the rewards are definitely worth it!
