Rocky is my second Bichon Frise. These adorable little dogs are independent and do not crave much attention. They love to play, but also love to sleep. My Rocky is like a playful cat. He’s also hypoallergenic. So, if you have allergy problems like me, this breed definitely should be kept into consideration. Bichons like to eat, so be careful with how much you feed them. They may beg you for food, but do not over feed them. Although I feel evil not sharing food sometimes, I know it’s for my Rocky’s own good! He could eat till he passes out. Also, they have such beautiful coats, and there are many different styling options. The main thing I don’t like about this breed is that they tend to have allergies and health problems. All Bichons that I have owned have had pretty bad allergy issues. I try my best to help them, but they still itch and itch away, sometimes to the point of bleeding from itching so much. My Rocky also suffers from seizures, but I have him on medication given by the vet, and he is doing much better now. If you want an independent companion, then Bichons are a great option.
