Breed of the week: Bichon Frisé

Psychical Characteristic

This spunky breed has beautiful silky snow white curls and a small but sturdy statue.


Weighing up to 11lbs,the Bichon Frisé is an affectionate breed that does well with kids and other pets. They love to play and very vibrant. However they don’t care to be left and alone so if you work long  hours, you may want to consider a professional dog walker.


This bundle of joy is an indoor pet and doesn’t do well with outdoor living. Even though they are of small statue, the Bichon Frisé require exercise. Running around in the yard/house or taking a stroll in the neighborhood will suffice. This breed doesn’t shed but grooming is needed to keep curls from knotting.


This breed can live up to 15 years or longer depending on health. They have a few health concerns

  • hyperadrenocorticism (crushing disease)
  • Allergies
  • patellar luxation (kneecap dislocates)
  • Cataract
  • Canine hip dysplasia
  • Liver problems

tip: you can have your vet run tests to find out if your pet suffers from any of these conditions.
