Ever wonder why reputable
breeders become upset with
puppy mills, backyard breeders
and pet stores?
Here is a good example!
This is NOT what a Bichon
Frise should look like!
SAD, BUT TRUE...
This was sold (and not cheaply) as a Bichon
Frise puppy in a pet store.
Who bred this poor animal for sale via
a pet store....we'll never know!
We can only hope that they are no longer
breeding and the pet store in question is no longer in business!
Although greatly improved after months
of tender loving care, this animal can hardly claim to be within the breed

NOW COMPARE IT TO A BICHON
FRISE WITHIN THE BREED STANDARD
That's what it's all about folks!
This is just one example of why reputable breeders sometimes come on strong when faced with poor breeding practices
which may destroy our breed!
Hope this helps you to understand!
