I recently took isabella to petsmart for a grooming. A doctor from the banfield clinic came over to play with her. I told her that she was a bichon-pom. The vet said, I think you are mistaken.She told me that isabella was mixed with a maltese and either a pomeranian or a bichon.She said definately maltese. What would this combination look like. The groomer agreed with the vet.I love my isabella and would not give her up, I just want to know what dog I paid a small fortune.
Well she looks nothing like any of those puppies. Her hair is more silky and wavy only down her backside. Her tail does however curl on top of her back. I hope that discription helps some. Also her entire body is white, except for her ear tips which have black streaks, and a touch of brown highlights.
puppymom, although you might be disappointed that you didn't get a "Bichon-a-Ranian".. there's really nothing lost here. You have a dog that you love, and a dog that loves you.. what else do you need?
Maltese or not, there's nothing you can do.. you bought a designer dog. Half the time these so called "breeders" don't know what these puppies are mixed with. They throw them in a kennel with a few male dogs and see which one tags her first.
You paid a small fortune? and you got a loving dog. What's the complaining about?
I'm not complaining, as I said in the begining I would just like to know. People ask me often what she is, and now I know what she is, to reply. I love my baby, but how would you feel if someone asked you what is your name, and you didn't know?
There really is no way to know for sure. Not all puppies in every litter look exactly alike no matter what they are. There is a really good chance the "breeder" doesn't even know for sure. I really don't see what difference it makes, you have a mixed breed puppy. It is adorable, & you love it. So who cares - unless you named her Anna - no one will really care who her daddy was!!!
I have a maltese and a bichon frise mix- she is 6 months old. I dont know how to post pic either on her or to post her dogster page- Maybe when hubby gets up i will have him try to post the pic for me- i can put her pic in the little avator box but you really cant see her. daisy is all white tho and has one cream colored ear and one spot of cream on her butt..lol Daiys tail curls up on to her back and she has long straight hair- no curl to it at all. i also have a bichon and toy poodle mix and bentley is all white but is all curl when its shorter but the curl will relax some if i let it get longer. daisy also is about 10 pounds a solid little girl-
