Welcome to the exciting world of the Cavachon!
The Cavachon is a cross breed from a Bichon Frise and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They come in a myraid of color combinations from Tri-colored ( a mixture of black, brown, and white) blenheim (white and a carmel tan) and apricot ( a very light tan, usually mixed with white). Although the color possibilities are endless, these are the three I have come across myself.
The Cavachon's parents ( a Bichon Frise and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) have both had a long standing reputation with royalty. The Cavalier dates back to the 13th century, serving as companions to ladies and small children, and lap warmers for residents of chilly castles and travelers in drafty coaches. The Bichon, since the Renaissance, has been known as the Bichon Teneriffe; taken from the largest of the Canary Islands. From there they were taken for Italian and Spanish noblemen. After the French invaded they were established in the french royal court society in the 1500s. The monarch, unwilling to be seperated from their new cute companion, started to carry them in baskets or clutched under an arm, to have their favored pets always at their fingertips.
The Cavachon is a low to non sheading breed that is also said to be hypoallergenic. They are a very lovable and playful breed. Interacting with children and other breeds is a breeze for the Cavachon. Always curious and ready for a belly rub, the Cavachon is a great choice for many different family types.
