If you are looking for a puppy, you may wish to work very closely with a breeder or a rescue organization. If you are working with a breeder, make sure they belong to at least one national group. In fact, it would be great if they show you their membership certificate. When possible, before getting a puppy it is best to meet his mother. Study his mom for her personality traits.

It is important that you tell your breeder or rescue group as much information as you can about your family and life style. For example, if your family likes to take long walks, hikes etc. make sure you pass this information on. Do you lead an active or sedentary life style? etc. Also, make sure you ask several questions about the temperament of the dog you are looking to adopt. Again, make sure the dog's temperament will match your families. Matched with the right family, you will find the Bichon Frise to be a real treat to get to know.
