The Pom-A-Chon, more formally known as the Bichonarianian and affectionately nicknamed the Pom Frise, is a recent designer crossbreed. The parents of this breed are the Pomeranian and the Bichon Frise. Not unlike its parent breeds, the Pom-A-Chon is adorable, cuddly, feisty, and affectionate. Depending on which parent they take after more, the Pomachon will either be a fluffy toy pooch or a small-sized pup with curly fur.
Both parent breeds are exceptionally intelligent, making the Pom-A-Chon just as intelligent. Training should be easy as these dogs are very teachable. Of course, they may inherit their Pomeranian parent’s sassy trait and be a bit headstrong at times. A little positive reinforcement and patience can overcome this.
Pom-A-Chons are spirited and happy-go-lucky dogs that do very well with children of all ages as well as other dogs. They love being the center of attention and enjoy meeting new people. While this breed isn’t as needy as most small designer breeds, they can still develop separation anxiety and shouldn’t be left alone for long periods of time.
Pom-A-Chons are energetic but not too active. They only require moderate exercise in the form of two short walks and interactive playtime to be happy and healthy.
