Bichon Poodle as Pet

posted in: Uncategorized

If I would eventually have another puppy, I would like it to be a Bichon Poodle, and I would name it Mindy. As you may have noticed already, what with all my posts and pictures of them in here, I have a love for dogs and anything related to them. In fact I have two of them right now, a Teacup Pomeranian named Molly and a Dachshund named Missy; yes we are all girls, the three of us. I would have wished for more, and I know Molly and Missy wouldn’t have minded, but if I did get another, I would have to move as my apartment is just enough for the three of us.

Bichon Poodles are relatively small dogs probably the size of a miniature poodle, and is a product of the cross breeding between a Bichon Frise and a regular Poodle. The most common characteristic traits of Bichon Poodles are their coat and also their ears. Their coats are both curly and loose which always tends to look scruffily fluffy most of the time, and owing to the Poodle’s inherent trait, their hair rarely sheds. Their ears meanwhile are long and generally tend to always hang loosely on the sides of their heads which is a common trait of the Bichon.

Bichon Poodles, like other poodle mixes, come in a variety of colors, usually depending on which breed’s blood is dominant during breeding, but it is the Poodle’s traits that is much more commonly obtained. Colors are diverse and may range from brown, red, beige, apricot, and most predominantly, white and it’s other variants. Their weight on the other hand may range anywhere from eight to fifteen pounds and Bichon Poodles usually have a lifespan of about fifteen years.

Bichon Poodles are also like the common poodle with regards to the way they act and behave. They are very intelligent kinds of dogs that are easily disciplined and also respond well to training. They are also dogs brimming with energy and are very suitable with houses that have backyards, as they love to always romp around. Their relationship with children is a perfect match as Bichon Poodles are very good natured and loves to always fool around.

With regards to their health concerns, Bichon Poodles are also affected with sickness typical with their breeds. Poodles are known to have weak hearts and are always at risk for various kinds of heart ailments, they are also prone to diabetes and several other genetic disorders, while the Frise are known to commonly suffer from eye problems such as always watery eyes and cataracts.

But if ever I get my hands on one of these kinds of dogs, my three little lady musketeers would be finally completed. Yes, I know I have to move as my apartments not too big for the four of us, and I think the land lord is already on to me, and is giving me the eye, as the common practice here is only one dog per apartment but was relaxed for me because my dogs are just teeny ones. We’ll see about that in the coming days.
