"Coton Frise puppies—this is a hybrid I started about 9 years ago with my sweet Gracie (a Frise) and my loyal Tobey (a Coton) before ‘designer dog’ was a term. This is a superior hybrid in temperament and looks. I tell people they have a heart larger than their body."
The Biton is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Bichon Frise and the Coton de Tulear. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
