Bichon Frise Puppies
Bichon Frise
© Paulette Braun, Pet Prints Inc.

History
Descended from the Barbet or Water Spaniel, this breed's name was derived from the name "Barbichan" which was later shortened to Bichon. The Bichon Frise originated in the Mediterranean area and was frequently used as an item of barter by sailors who transported them from continent to continent.

Disposition
Gentle-mannered and sensitive, the breed is known for its affectionate cheerful attitude.

Features
The Bichon Frise has a thick, loosely curled coat colored white or white with patches of gray, orange, or pale yellow. It has a broad, slightly rounded head. The Bichon Frise stands from 8 to 12 inches (20 to 30 centimeters) high and weighs from 12 to 15 pounds (5.4 to 6.8 kilograms). Bichons are non-shedding and are, therefore, promoted as hypo-allergenic.

Bichon Frise puppies are available from Andora Kennels several times a year. Most are ready to leave or be shipped by 8 to 10 weeks of age. We don't ship any puppies unless we feel they are ready to make the trip. Puppies will have been given all their necessary shots before their departure.
