Pico the Bichon Frise

This week’s Klip Joint dog of the week is Pico, a soft and cuddly Bichon Frise.

As with many dog breeds, the exact origin of the Bichon Frise is uncertain. Common belief holds that the Bichon descended from the Barbet, a medium-sized, woolly water dog, and that the word Bichon is derived from barbichon, which is the diminutive of the word barbet. The Barbichon family of dogs includes the Bichon Frise, the Bolgnese, the Coton de Tulear, the Havanese, and the Maltese. All originated in the Mediterranean and have a similar look and disposition.

Because they don’t shed like other breeds, Bichons often are recommended for people with allergies. This is something you should discuss with your allergist, since not everyone reacts the same way to a Bichon. Before making a commitment to getting a Bichon — or any type of dog — be sure to spend some time in the presence of the breed if you have allergies.

If you’re looking for a wonderful family pet, consider the Bichon. This dog loves to play. He’s always happy (except when left alone for long periods of time), and his demeanor is affectionate and gentle.

No matter what breed your dog is, the Klip Joint will keep it looking lovely. Make an appointment today!
