Bichon Frise Adoption

Is Bichon Frise Adoption Right For You?

If you are considering a Bichon Frise adoption there's a few keys things to consider. Obviously, you want to be sure you have given the idea a lot of thought, and you are ready to make a serious commitment of your time and money towards raising a Bichon Frise. It's not a good idea to jump right in to a Bichon Frise adoption without knowing much about these adorable white fluff balls.

Let's jump right in and check out the top five reasons you should adopt a Bichon Frise.

The Good:

  1. Hypoallergenic: Bichons do not shed. If you have family members in your home who are typically sensitive to pet hair and dander, the Bichon is a wonderful option.
  2. Perfect Lap Dog: Your Bichon Frise will happily sit on your lap or curled up next to you on the couch for practically as long as you'll let him. They are incredibly sweet, and love to spend every moment with their humans.
  3. Gentle Disposition: If you have children or other pets in your home, you don't have to worry that your new Bichon Frise will hurt them. The Bichon is a laid back breed who doesn't have an aggressive nature.

The Bad:

  1. Excessive Grooming: You must brush you brush your Bichon Frise everyday, and take them to the groomer for a professional bathing and fur trimming every four to six weeks. Otherwise your Bichon will experience painful, horrible matting of his fur.With a professional grooming averaging anywhere between 30 to 60 dollars, these visits can quickly add up.
  2. Separation Anxiety: A Bichon Frise will not be happy when you are away for long periods of time. You can expect to endure an anxious, destructive, poorly behaved pet if you don't give it lots of attention and time around people. These dogs are best placed with a family who isn't going to frequently leave them alone.
  3. Difficult to Housebreak: While all dogs require a good amount of time and patience during the house breaking phase, the Bichon Frise is notorious for being one of the more difficult to fully train. These are smart, well behaved dogs, they just take a bit longer to figure it out for some reason. Be prepared to give your Bichon losts of time and your devoted patience while you go through the house breaking process.

Commit to learning all you can about the Bichon Frise breed. The more you know, the happier and healthier your Bichon will be. Finalizing your Bichon Frise adoption is just the beginning for you both.
