The Bichon is affectionate and gentle, and they make a wonderful dog for the elderly and young children. These dogs are very social and thrive when they are spending time with their family. This breed will enjoy daily play sessions followed by a lazy evening hanging out and watching television.
Origin of the Bichon
The Bichon Frise is said to have originated in the Canary Islands. They were a favored breed of royalty and nobles in Spain, France, and Italy during the Renaissance. During the French Revolution their career changed from papered nobility to entertaining on a street corner or in the circus due to their agility and their ability to be easily trained.
