Bichon Frise puppies are little white puffballs. They have slightly rounded heads and dark eyes that are emphasized by black rims and dark haloes. The eyes of the Bichon express alertness and friendliness. Their ears are well covered with fur, are a medium length and hang close to their head.
The muzzles of Bichon Frise puppies are not thick, nor are they pointy. They have flat cheeks, and a round black nose that is both soft and shiney. The Bichon has strong jaws, a complete scissor bite, and thin black lips.
When observing the body of a Bichon Frise you will notice that his neck is well arched and is a decent length. This allows him to carry his head high and proud. Just as he carries his head proud, so does he carry his tail. The tail is carried in line with the back, and although it looks like touches his back, in actuality only the hair on his tail meets the back.
Bichon Frise puppies have straight front legs and well rounded hind legs that feature neatly bent knees. The feet are rounded and knuckle upwards. The nails and paw pads are black. The shape of the Bichon’s feet give him his supreme balance, and are what allow him to remain steady, giving him the power to easily perform tricks and smooth movements.
The most distinguishing characteristic of the Bichon Frise is his pure white, fine, silky, and loose curled coat. However, should you notice that the Bichon Frise puppies have cream or apricot colored markings mixed in with their white fur, this is not uncommon, and can last up to 18 months.
In addition, you will find that while the Bichon has a pure coat of white, his skin is quite the opposite. Most Bichons have black, beige or blue makrings on their skin, and look as if they’re covered in birthmarks. This is normal and nothing to worry about.
The above description is information about the breed standard, which is something you need to seriously consider and look for when selecting breeders and from Bichon puppies.
