The Poochon is a mongrel dog, a cross between the Toy Poodle and Bichon Frise dog breeds. Small, lively and intelligent, these puppies inherit some of the best qualities of both their parents. Researching their parents can offer a lot of information about their personalities and characteristics.Poochons are also called Bichpoo, Bichon Poo and Bichon Poodle. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed-breed dogs in breed-specific shelters and rescues, so remember to adopt. These adorable puppies would make a great addition to a large family or single-person household. They would also do well in a flat. Just be sure to start training them early to curb excessive barking. If you want a playful, cuddly, low hair puppy that will love you unconditionally, the Poochon may be the right dog for you.

The Poochon dog breed may have existed naturally over the years, but designer breeders began intentionally mixing Poodles and Bichon Frises in the late 1990s in Australia. Breeders wanted to mix the two breeds to combine the proud and intelligent Toy Poodle with the playful and lovable Bichon Frise. Mixing the two breeds separately can also help eliminate the health problems associated with purebreds and inbreeding. Although the Poochon breed began as a designer breed, many have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. Consider adoption if you decide this is the breed for you. They are high maintenance dogs. Check with local shelters, look for Poochon and Bichpoo rescues, or check with breed-specific Poodle and Bichon Frise rescues, as they sometimes take mixed breed dogs.
