The Bichon Bolonais is a very old Italian breed. The International Cynological Federation recognizes these small white dogs as the Bolognese.
Known as the Maltese bichon in Roman times, this dog was a very popular gift at that time. Its origin is from Italy. Philippe II received as a gift 2 Bolognese bichons and he said: "it is the most royal gift that one can give to an emperor".
Little restless, agile, attached to his master and likes to play (when he wants)
