Acquired: Breeder (professional)
Posted November 10, 2015
Ginny wasn’t really my dog, but she was my grandmothers and I actually got to spend a lot of time taking care of her while my grandmother was at work or going to the casino or bingo. But my take on Bichons are amazing!
I have never before met such a smart breed of dog before. If you asked her if she had water, she would run over to the bowl to check. If you asked her a question, she would sneeze to denote a ‘yes’ or run around in a circle to show a ‘no’. You ask where ‘mom’ was? She would run by the door because my grandmother was out of the house. She was a brilliant little girl that lived to be about fifteen.
They’re a loving breed of dog, but they are also pretty independent. They can be left alone for quite a while, but as they age they do require a little bit of higher maintenance.
They have a wool style hair so that adds some difficulty when it comes to grooming, after some practice you can do it on your own, but you need to invest on a decent pair of shears! Their ginger additions in their ‘wool’ add excellent beauty and adds to their elegance.
Would I suggest someone to own a Bichon Brise? Definitely! Such well-behaved, gentle babies!
