The Bichon Frise . . .
Although France is often credited as the countryof their origin, 
the Bichon Frise actually has a Spanish heritage. In the 
fourteenth century they served as companions to Spanish 
sailors and merchants, and it wasn't until the sixteenth century 
that they became the favoured court dog of the French nobility.

The breed gained further popularity when they first arrived 
in the United States, as recently as the 1950's, and they 
were officially recognized by the American Kennel Club 
in 1973 and The Canadian Kennel Club in 1975.

Bred for companionship, the Bichon Frise is an alert, 
gentle mannered, playful and affectionate little white dog, 
measuring 9.5"-11.5" in height at the shoulder.
Like the Lowchen, they are quick learners and have 
done well in both Obedience and Agility Trials.

Adeuxpaw Bichons' breeding stock has been chosen from, or bred to Canadian and American Champion bloodlines. After much searching in Europe and the United States, rather than importing at this time, we have found wonderful, healthy bloodlines right here in Canada. Much research of each Bichon's family bloodline, health testing and planning has been done. Health, temperament, intelligence and structure, according to the breed standard, are all equal components that must be complied with. Eyes and patellas are tested annually.

Some of the stud dogs we have used in the past are:  

Ch.Neigenuveaux's Ex'cla-ma'tion; Ch.Talewagon's Hylandsnow Xavier;  Ch.Luvit Dalnavert's Ice Cream Brick
