Choosing a Bichon Frise
What should you look for?
Bichon Frise are beautiful, white and fluffy dogs that are loving companions for your home. These dogs are recognized by the American Kennel Club and have an outstanding disposition to complement their stunning physical appearance. If you are interested in adopting a Bichon Frise and bringing one of these dogs into your home, then it is important that you work with a trusted and experienced breeder to ensure that you are adopting a sound and healthy puppy. At Toy Puppies by Myra, I have been raising puppies for more than 30 years and have produced numerous litters of quality Bichon Frise puppies that would make wonderful additions to almost any home. When looking to buy a Bichon Frise dog, there are some things that you should consider and be on the lookout for in order to ensure that you are adopting a healthy puppy:
- Coat - The Bichon Frise coat is unique to the breed and is one of the most easily recognized characteristics of the dog. The fluffy coat should have a cotton ball-like appearance when groomed, and the hair should stick straight off the body. The undercoat should be silky and smooth, and the outer coat should have slightly coarser and curlier texture. Bichon Frise should be predominantly white, with only small amounts of cream coloring. These dogs are hypoallergenic, which makes them fantastic indoor dogs.
- Size - A Bichon Frise should be relatively small in stature and usually weighs less than 12 pounds, which makes them ideal for condos and apartments. A well-proportioned dog with good bone density could possibly be considered a show dog.
- Temperament - Bichon Frise dogs are known to be gentle and loving. Puppies should be playful and outgoing; adults are of sound temperament friendly, and curious.
When you are selecting your Bichon Frise, it is important to visit the breeder and get to know the litter and meet the parents. A well-established breeder will not breed dogs for high turnover rate, but rather to ensure that their puppies are healthy and happy. Each litter that is bred by Myra, will have been carefully selected for their genetic traits in both temperament, genetics and physical appearance.
The puppies are paper trained as early as six weeks old and socialized with children as soon as they get their first shots. My Bichon Frise dogs are raised in my home, not in a cage or pet store. If you are interested in bringing home a beautiful Bichon Frise, then contact Myra today and inquire about litters. I can also arrange safe airline shipping to ensure that your puppy arrives at your home happy and healthy.
