BBS Breed Spotlight: Bichon Frisé
Best Bully Sticks is highlighting a very delightful dog today, the Bichon Frisé! This little dog is full of energy and extremely loving, not to mention absolutely adorable! The Bichon also has a very interesting background that we were surprised to learn and we hope you are too!
History & Background: The Bichon Frisé is an early descendant from the Portuguese Spaniel and still has a liking toward water and retrieving. This dog was traded by Spanish sailors and were kept on board many boats as a companion. Because it visited and was used as barter on many continents, the Bichon became a favorite of many royal courts. Still today, Bichons are known as a great companion dog.
Height: 9 – 12 in (from withers)
Weight: 10 - 20 lbs
Coat: The Bichon has a soft and dense undercoat and a coarser and curlier outer-coat, which together makes this thick but soft to the touch. The coat is springy and velvety. This breed is usually listed as a hypoallergenic dog, which doesn’t shed, but this is somewhat false. The curl in the coat of the Bichon limits the amount of dead hair and dander that will get into the air. Also, the grooming that this dog needs will remove any excess hair. Read more
