Meet Zion



Zion is my three month old Bichon-poo. He is a cross between a Bichon frise and a toy poodle. Bichon-poos, Bichpoos, or Poochons are considered one of the popular designer dog breeds. I choose this breed because of it`s "hypo-allergenic" coat. The poodle coat grows continuously and shedding is almost non existing. They produce minimal dander, making this breed mix an excellent choice for people who suffer from allergies!



My first dog was a Toy Manchester Terrier. I loved manny! I was devastated when I had to find a new home because of my allergies to him. I had minimal response to him, when I first got him. As time went on, I had full blown symptoms: Watery itchy eyes, sneezing, and wheezing.



After a year, I was still yearning for Manny. I did my home work and settled on this breed. Poodles are very intelligent dogs and easy to train. Bichons have cheerful temperaments and love to please their human parents! I drove three and a half hours to meet my boy. The breeder released all the dogs from the Bichon-poo liter. All of his other siblings were all over the place. This puppy walked up to me. When I picked him up, he stretched out his paws on me and began to lick me. I know he was going home with me! I had no allergic reactions. No watery eyes, no sneezing!




I had him for one month. At three months old, my boy is wee wee pad trained and follows basic commands that I taught him: sit, come, and stay.



I love my Zion as I love jesus! His name means Land of Israel or Jerusalem. In the Rastafarian religion, Zion stands for place of unity, peace and freedom. I feel at peace when I`am with him!




"By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea we wept, when we remembered Zion." Psalm 137:1 KJV
