Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

I don't want to spend the large amount of money to get a dog dna test, but I can't stop wondering if my dog is a Bichon Frise. I've been told he looks exactly like a Bichon Frise or could be a Bichon Frise Poodle mix. I've researched alot and he has many of the same characteristics that definitely add up. Please tell me what you think by looking at his pictures. Thanks!

    Does his tail carry over his back? If not he might be a Poochon. My friend has a poochon and looks very simular!

    A "poochon" is NOT a breed! He looks more like a mix to me, the head is not right for either a poodle OR a bichon and he appears pretty big for a bichon. The beauty with a mix like him is that you can either have him groomed to look like a bichon OR a poodle, so enjoy!!!
