Bichon Frise

 

Origin:

 

The Bichon Frise originated in the Mediterranean as far back as 300 B.C. This little dog once held the job of leader dog for the blind and circus performers prior to becoming the companion they are today.

History

A cheerful, happy dog, the Bichon Frise is small and sturdy with a dark-eyed inquisitive expression and a plumed tail it carries merrily over the back. The breed is often compared to a cotton ball due to its curled double coat, which consists of a textured outer coat and a silky undercoat. The Bichon Frise’s coat must be white, but may have shadings of buff, cream or apricot around the ears or on the body.
