The Poochon is created by the crossing of two non shedding breeds, the Bichon Frise and Poodle. While they are not a very common designer breed, Poochons are becoming popular companions. The most distinctive characteristic of this breed is its non shedding wool coat. The Poochon is an energetic and adorable little breed that is suitable for most allergy sufferers. Often the hardest part about owning a Poochon is going for a walk without being stopped by strangers who want to pat their adorable curly dog!


Gentle mannered, sensitive, playful and affectionate. Bichons are extremely intelligent and adaptive with unique personalities and make the ideal companion for all ages, especially kids and even other animals! Bichons are full of love to give and life to live! A cheerful attitude is the hallmark of the breed. They are hypo-allergenic and do not shed, so need regular grooming. The sweet-natured Bichon with its self-assured, important manner could fit into any home where a dog with a lot of love and loyalty is desired.


The Toy or Mini Poodle dog breed is intelligent and full of liveliness and perkiness. The Toy or Mini Poodle is eager to please and easy to train. Their coat, which is hypo-allergenic non-shedding, requires brushing twice a week and clipping every two months. Toy or Mini Poodles are a good tempered breed and are devoted to their families, and affectionate with their owners.


As the Bichon Poodle puppy becomes an adult, their appearance does not change much. They retain their puppy look throughout adulthood and will retain much of their puppy color pattern. Their hair will continue to grow (since theyare non-shedding) and will need to be trimmed in a puppy cut if you like the shorter haired look. Though the adult look of a Bichon Poodle can be harder to predict that the appearance of a purebred Bichon or Toy or Mini Poodle, they always end up looking cute as a button :) The ideal Poochon should be robust, well-proportioned, and hardy. They are small in stature, possess a sturdy appearance, and exhibit a sweet expression. The most distinctive characteristic of this breed is its non shedding wool coat. The Poochon has similar facial features to the Bichon with a wider face than the Poodle, rounded skull, medium length ears and medium muzzle. If the face of the Poochon is not clipped, they will have their characteristic fuzzy face.


Besides its wool coat and fuzzy face, the other defining characteristic of the Poochon is its spirited and happy temperament. Affectionate, friendly, and loyal, the Poochon is spirited and has a pleasing personality. Poochons do best in a home with older, considerate children or with children they have been with from puppyhood. They are suitable for homes with dogs, cats, and other household pets. Poochons are suspicious of strangers and will bark to alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary sounds. It may have a tendency to want a significant amount of attention and special treatment.


The Poochon is well-suited for city and apartment living. They thrive on family interaction, securely leashed walks, and off-lead play time in a securely fenced yard. They are just as comfortable whether living with an active family or spending time on the couch with the family watching TV.


The Apricot/White puppies will usually lighten some in color as they get older. A puppy with black markings may turn lighter or stay black as they get older. The Dark Carmel Color will fade lighter as the puppy matures. The darker Apricot puppies normally stay darker as they mature.


Adults will range in height from 30-35 cm at the shoulders and 6-10kgs. The smaller sized adults will be the result of using the Toy poodle as the sire/dad
