My 12 year old bichon Riley just recently passed away. When the time is right I want to get another. But my fiancee wants to get something as he states a little more manly (like a boxer) We live in a large two bedroom apt with plenty of space and I work out of the house in Florida. We have decided we want to get two dogs, but I would like to know what breed would work well with a bichon, does not shed (i have allergies) and doesnt get real large. I want to get them both as puppies. Any comments
If you are looking for something similar to a bichon, I would suggest a Zuchon which is a Shih tzu/Bichon mix. We have one and from our experience so far she has been wonderful. They are hypoallergenic and they do not shed. My husband also wanted a bigger dog, but he loves to play with her b/c shes so fun and full of energy
Actually Dusty, there really is a hypoallergenic or shed free dog that is available today. It's called a "Nerf Dog." Comes in many colors. Best thing though, if you seriously had a bad day at work, you can come home and REALLY kick it... Awesome! Nerf Dog, Sit, Stay there, Don't move, Still, are some of the cool commands it is born with... Get one TODAY!
