Bichon Frise

A white powder-puff dog known for his merry temperament, the Bichon Frise originated in the Mediterranean region in the 13th century. Gentle-mannered, sensitive and affectionate, the Bichon is an excellent family companion. This playful breed loves activity and requires regular exercise. Though the Bichon’s fluffy coat does not shed, it requires grooming to prevent mats.
