Bichons are a bouncy and perky breed.

They have such a happy-go-lucky demeanor that they are loved by everyone, including strangers, family, owners, kids and even other pets. Bichon Frise dogs can also be described as affectionate and sensitive. At Furry Babies, we always have Bichon Frise dogs for sale. Take a look in our available puppies gallery.

Most dogs are playful, we get it, but Bichon Frise dogs take it another level and beat them all in this department! They’re a wonderful addition to any family and thankfully they are kid-friendly. In fact, they are one of the top small dogs that are also kid-friendly.
