Here are two fluffy and adorable non-sporting dogs: Bichon Frise and Chow Chow.

 

Bichon Frise

This white powder puff of a dog traveled a good deal through ancientness. Spanish sailors carried the Bichon Frise ( Bee-shawn Free-zay) to the Canary Islands. They were rediscovered in the 14th century by Italian seamen, who brought them back to the Continent, where they turned great favorites of the nobility. This is a tough, squarely built dog whose gay temperament is shown by the plumed tail he carries jauntily over his back and through his dark-eyed questioning expression. Its head is covered with a topknot of

hair that melds into the long ear feathering, and when merged with the trappings of the beard and mustache, produces an overall rounded picture.

WEIGHT: 14-20 pounds

HEICHT. 9-12 inches

COLOR: white (may have buff, cream, or apricot shadings on ears or body).

 

Chow Chow 

The Chow Chow goes back more than 2,000 years to

the Han dynasty in China, where he was utilized as a hunting dog. Its name derives from a Pidgin English term describing bric-a-brac traded by Oriental merchants during the latter part of the 18th century. Aloof and scowling, it is a massive, squarely made dog having short back, well-rounded ribs, and deep, brawny chest. His head is big in proportion to his size, with broad nose, short muzzle, deep-set dark eyes, small upright ears, and true blue-black tongue. He is adorned in a heavily furred off standing coat, accented by a ruff around his neck.

WEIGHT 50-70 pounds

HEIGHT 18-20 inches

COLOR: any color (black, red, blue, and fawn most often seen).
