Bichon Frise

Bichon Baby

They are very social, and are happiest when they are with people. In general, they are good with kids and other animals, and easy to train. They love to show off in front of a crowd, and are also good watchdogs.

Health Problems: Prone to watery eyes, cataracts, skin and ear ailments, epilepsy, dislocated kneecaps, and have a sensitivity to flea bites.

Exercise/Living Conditions: These dogs will keep themselves active indoors, but they enjoy going on walks and playing outdoors.

Life Expectancy: 12-15 years (sometimes even longer).

Grooming: They don’t shed, but they do need to be brushed fairly often. They should be bathed and clipped at least once a month.Baby again
