Description

The Wee-Chon is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Bichon Frise and the Westie. 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.

Tuttle the Wee-Chon at 5 years old—"Here is Tuttle resting after rolling around in the sand (sorry he's so dirty!). He was the best family dog for eleven wonderful years; he has unfortunately passed away. We adopted Tuttle when he was just a puppy and training him was very easy. He grew up with three young children and was great with them. He was really the best dog ever!"
