Gentle and playful, the Bichon Frise
unleashes occasional short bursts of activity of racing through your home or around the yard in a frenzy. Just as suddenly, he stops and goes back to being a lap-lounging dog. These play bursts and a short daily walk are all he needs to maintain his sunny disposition. The Bichon is a small dog who weighs 10 to 18 pounds, just right for snuggling in your lap or nestling by your side.
