Get to know Bella

Bichon Frise, 8 Months old

🏠 Suburbs dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Bella is...

She is bright white but only happy when she’s full of mud! She is very clever and mischievous, but I wouldn’t change her for the world.

The biggest challenge with Bella is...

Getting her to come in rain or snow, and to get in bed before her or you lose your space!

The most surprising thing about owning a Bichon Frise is...

Highly intelligent, loving, active and very caring.

What I wish I’d known about Bichon Frises is...

How lovely they are or I’d of got one years ago.

Did you know?

The origin of the name Bichon Frise is up for debate. Some argue it comes from the Old French term for female dog ‘biche’ while others say that it’s a shortening of ‘barbichon’, which means small poodle, and derives from ‘barbiche’, meaning shaggy dog. Later on, the French coined the term ‘bichon à poil frisé’ which was shortened and simplified by the English to become Bichon Frise.
