The Bichon Frise is a small, white, friendly, fluffy, agile dog with short legs and a silky coat. This companion dog is also known as the Tenerife dog.

The Bichon Frise was originally bred in the 1400's as a companion dog for royalty in Spain and France. It is descended from the Water-Spaniel. In the 1800's, the Bichon Frise was used in circuses and by organ grinders.

Anatomy: The Bichon Frise is from 9 to 12 inches (23-31 cm) tall at the shoulders and weighs from 7 to 12 pounds (3-6 kg). It has a white, silky, double coat, giving it a powder-puff look. The under coat is soft and dense; the outer coat is coarser with corkscrew curls. The ears droop down and are covered with long, curly hair.
