I have posted before about my situation. Essentially moving into an in law apt so I will be in small quarters as well as possibly living with my grandmother. So I will require a not so yappy smaller dog that is good for both children and the elderly. I originally decided on a shih poo because they are lower energy dogs and are not yappy. Recently I have been walking a friend's Bichon Frise dog and realized how docile and quite she is. I have always like mixing with a poodle due to their intelligence. So I was thinking that maybe a Bich poo/poo chon would be perfect too. Please for all you owners out there tell me if Bich poo/Poo chon are docile, friendly, and not so yappy as I suspect. I have been researching and can not find too much information on these dogs. For you shih poo owners, are shih poos yappy or more quiet. Thank you so much for your input. All information would be greatly appreciated.
