Description: The BICH-POO is a cross between the Poodle and the Bichon Frise. For the best all-round knowledge of the type of dog you may get it is best to read up on both breeds and see if this dog will fit into your life.
This mix has a small frame and the body is normally muscular. They tend to have long and hanging ears that reach passed the chin. The eyes of the Bich-poo stand out on the face like the Bichon Frise.
The Bichpoo nose is large and dark in color. The tail is long, fluffy and is set low. The coat is good for allergy sufferers, and you are going to get a good cross both of the parents are good and low to non-shedders.
The coat will be curly haired but how tight the curls are will be affected by the parents. The colors are a variety of solid colors some color are white, cream and black and blue.
The height is 9-12 inches and the weight is 6-12 pounds. Life expectancy is about 14 years but this is not really known at this time.
History: The Bich-poo is a new designer dog or hybrid breed that has a great history within the two breeds of the parent but is in the process of making its own history to date. The Bich-poo is a member of the American Canine Hybrid Club.
Temperament: The Bich-poo is a high spirited dog and is intelligent, like its parents and will train well. Being easy to potty train is a plus for this dog.
The dog is a friendly dog, and they will love to be with their family and will be good to invited guests but they have a protective nature and are wary of people that they are not sure if they should be there, and warn you. This is not to be confused with a dog that will attack, but they will call you to sort out the problem.
This breed is good with other pets in the home and are good with children, more so if they have been raised together. This dog needs good leadership and house rules, which are kept in a kind but firm manner.
They love their walks and enjoy a good play, this doesn’t have to be lots, but they do need walks, daily. This dog should enjoy water and swimming. As this dog can be trained well it should be a good dog to have with a busy family as it also needs walks but not for hours each day.
This breed will want to be with the family and will not like to be left on its own for hours and hours at a time.
Health issues: Read up on both lines that make up this new breed but to date this dog has no big health problems. Both lines this dog comes from do have some health worries that show in later life and so at this time it would be too hard to say if this breed has inherited any of these health concerns.
Grooming: The Bich-poo coat can become matted and tangled, so some time has to be spent keeping the coat smooth and tangle free. You will have to have professional grooming done once or twice a year.
Living conditions: The Bich-poo can live in an apartment providing that they have exercise daily and the use of a garden which should be well fenced and offer some shelter if required.

What is the Bich-poo? It is a cross between the Bichon Frise and Poodle dog.
Mixed breed dogs tend to be healthier than full blood dogs and this is why designer or hybrid dogs are quickly becoming as popular as many of the AKC registered breeds.
There are many registries where you can get registry papers including 5 generation pedigrees also. The best advice I can give you is study each individual breed and determine both the temperament and characteristics in each of the breeds.
Most of your designer or hybrid breeds come in many different sizes, including: Teacup, Tiny Toy, Miniature and Standard.
It’s best to ask the breeder the size and weight of the parents to get a better idea of what size the puppy your interested will be as an adult. It is harder with the mixed breeds to determine an exact adult weight.
