Here are two fluffy and adorable non-sporting dogs: Bichon Frise and Chow Chow.
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 ofhair that melds into the long ear feathering, and when merged with the trappings of the beard and mustache, produces an overall rounded picture.
