The Bichon, also known as Tenerife Dog, is one of the most popular breeds in the world and for good reason. They are adorable little dogs that have wonderful, affectionate and lovable personalities. Bichons are known to be good with children, which is another plus, as many smaller dogs have a hard time when children are around. The Bichon is thought to have originated in the Mediterranean region of Europe and is often referred to as "Tenerife Dog" as sailors found them on the island of Tenerife in the 14th century and in the centuries that followed, Bichons found their way into the hearts and homes of people all over the world.
