Bichon Frise and Bichon Frise pictures

The Bichon Frise is a small, sturdy, white powder puff of a dog whose merry temperament is evident by his plumed tail carried jauntily over his back. He loves to be the center of attention and is always eager to please. He makes a delightful and amusing companion. The exact origin of the Bichon Frise is still unknown today. Though many agree that he existed before the time of Christ. Some say he descends from the Maltese, others claim he was a dwarf breed that resulted from crossing of a miniature Spaniel and a miniature Poodle with Cayenne dogs.
