Would you believe that they were actually classified as gun dogs? They are typically good choices for a family with a young child, as long as the child is taught to respect the dog.

Here are a couple of links you might find interesting, Bichongal:

http://www.smallpawsrescue.org/
http://www.bichonrescue.org/

Aside from being rescue organizations (which I believe anyone interested in particular breeds should be knowledgeable about whether it's a possibility or not) it looks like there is some excellent information and good links, particularly on the second site.

Bichons are great dogs. My neighbors have one. He's a very sweet little guy. I myself am more of a "big dog" kind of person, but there are some small guys I like too . Welcome!

I don't believe there is such a thing as "girly". I am female yet I do not spend my days shopping and wearing pink clothing, LOL!!! There are certain breeds that look "fluffier" and "cutesier," but I don't believe there is such a thing as "girly".

Whatever, Fandogg, I wasn't trying to start a fight. If you want to fight, you can, but I'm not going to.

I think Bichons are cute little dogs! And no breed is 'girly'. There are 'girly' dogs, but not breeds. But whatever. (Although Poodles in that show cut.....bleah. lol)

Anyways, DogFancy's breed of the month was the Bichon Frise, so maybe you could pick up a magizine somewhere.
From what I know of them, they are cute, fluffy little dogs that are very freindly, they love animals, they are good with kids as long as the kids are good,they require playtime, are hard to housebreak, require lots of grooming, and can have seperation anxiety. (Oh, and they are also very smart and enjoy doing tricks.)
