Bichon Puppies for Sale in Florida

The bichon frise was originally used as a sailing dog by the Spanish in the 14th century, although the French began developing bichon frises into gentle lapdogs in the 16th century. Modern bichons are friendly and playful and get along well with children and other animals.

Breed Characteristics

An adult bichon frise typically weighs 10 to 20 pounds, although slightly larger dogs aren’t uncommon. The hair is white and very curly in most cases, although some members of this breed have less curly hair. Other colors such as buff, cream and apricot may also be found around the ears, paws and snout, although they normally don’t exceed 10 percent of the body. The dense undercoat doesn’t really shed, owing to this breed’s poodle ancestry.

Bichons are bred to be friendly companion dogs with an alert temperament. The standard for this breed calls for them to be affectionate and playful with a sensitive, gentle manner, making them very social and suitable for taking on outings. They generally do well in smaller homes and apartments that don’t have yards and only need a short walk around the block.
