Based on 63 reviews

The Bichon Frise has a long history and is considered part of the Barbichon breed types. This referred to the ancient dog breeds that made up a clan of little white dogs and includes the Bichon Frise, Bolognese, Maltese, and Havanese. The Spanish used the bichon breed type as sailing dogs and brought them to Tenerife, which is the largest island of the Canary Island, and where they became known as the Bichon Tenerife. They were also popular with Italian nobility in the 14th century. However, it was the French that developed the Bichon into the gentle lap dog we know as today’s Bichon Frise. The AKC first recognized the Bichon Frise in 1971 and it gained full breed recognition in 1973 as part of the Non-Sporting Group.
