#5 Bichon Frise
The name of the Bichon Frise means “curly lap dog” and the breed originated in the 13th century, in Spain, when sailors began transporting it from continent to continent. In the 16th century, the Bichon Frise finally became a favorite type of dog for the French royal courts. The breed has a very distinct and refined appearance, yet his personality is anything but haughty. Very playful and cuddly, it is a trustworthy, fun partner to have around the house.
