As a mix between the athletic Mini Aussie and the adorable Bichon Frise, the Aussiechon has a uniquely gorgeous appearance. Aussiechons are petite dogs that sport a playful step and a perfectly happy demeanor. As a crossbreed, the Aussiechon size and appearance can both vary even between puppies in the same litter. That being said, the average height of a full grown Aussiechon should be between 10 and 18 inches while their weight should be in average of 8 to 20 pounds.

The cute Aussiechon dogs are athletic, well-proportioned, and strong. Their most adorable features are their inquisitive almond-shaped eyes, cute and ready-for-boops diamond noses, and floppy ears. These beautiful designer dogs can have black, brown, or blue-colored eyes depending on which of their parents they take after more. Their coat texture can be straight to wavy and of a medium length. Their coats can be solid-colored or have various color combinations with certain patterns.

The most common Aussiechon colors include white, black, tan, merle, red, apricot, and shades of brown. The Aussiechon is a light shedder and a hypoallergenic dog breed.  


Aussiechons are the precious little joy bringers of the canine world. They make life a fun-filled journey and they never hold back on affection. Because they inherit qualities from two different dog breeds, these dogs are bound to display a multitude of skills. They are sure to put on a show and impress with their circus-level tricks (which they get from their Bichon parent). They are likely to show off some Mini Aussie herding instincts/skills, just enough to cause a giggle or two while they attempt to herd all the chairs around into one pile. And they are certainly going to seek out attention by performing random tricks that they pick up during training. You'll never know boredom with an Aussiechon around because these dogs are driven to have fun. Some of their favorite activities include exploring new territories, making friends on their daily walks, fetching, playing dog games, hiking, swimming, and the list never ends with Aussiechon dogs.

Taking after their Bichon Frise parent, the Aussiechon dogs are not likely to show any trace of aggression, shyness, or jumpiness. They are quite friendly towards everyone they meet (dogs and cats alike) and they are big fans of human interactions. When it comes to children, Aussiechons may just be the ideal nanny dogs. Their temperament is calm, their nature is kind, and they are gentle enough to play even with the smallest toddlers. Moderation is key in everything, and Aussiechons seem to live by that rule. They fancy a moderate lifestyle with plenty of games, a generous number of cuddles, and just enough relaxation to recharge their “batteries”.  


Aussiechon Grooming

Aussiechons are a low-maintenance breed when it comes to grooming and care. Whether their coats are kept in a short puppy cut or a long hairstyle, they only require a brushing per week. It is beneficial to keep to the weekly brushing schedule as Aussiechons are light shedders and need to be combed or brushed to avoid any hair matting or tangles. They should also be bathed regularly, preferably on a monthly basis to keep their appearance clean and their coats healthy and shiny. In case they don’t wear off their nails naturally, they should be clipped after each monthly bath. Their ears and teeth should also be cleaned regularly to avoid any ear infections or dental issues that are common in dogs. 

Aussiechon Exercise Needs

As a moderately active dog breed, Aussiechons crave exercise and relaxation in equal measure. Despite their small size, these energetic dogs love to go on long walks, hikes, and even jogs. Their ideal daily routine should include at least 2 to 3 walks and plenty of fun indoor activities. Obstacle courses, dog puzzles, and interactive dog toys are also a great way to exercise their minds and keep them busy, engaged, and happy.  

Aussiechon Training

Aussiechon puppies are naturally obedient, smart, and driven to please, all of which makes them very easy to train. Teaching these puppies their basic commands should be an effortless and fun activity. They are enthusiastic about learning and completely happy to soak up all the attention that comes with training. As friendliness is written in their DNA, Aussiechon puppies rarely need socialization training. They are naturally open towards strangers, kids, other pets, and other dogs. Their curious nature and adventurous spirit keep them from being shy or easily scared by noises, crowds, or city distractions.

It’s always best to introduce young puppies to various sounds and distractions to get them accustomed to their surroundings. As Aussiechons are natural explorers at heart, this process should go smoothly with them. 
Potty training an Aussiechon puppy can pose some difficulties and require plenty of patience, as it is with all small puppies. It is recommended to take Aussiechon puppies on plenty of walks during their early weeks of puppyhood to help them associate their daily walks with their need to go potty.  


A cross between a purebred Miniature Australian Shepherd and a purebred Bichon Frise, the Aussiechon was designed to inherit all the key qualities its parent breeds are known and loved for.  These beautiful puppies were created in the United States at the beginning of the year 2000 by crossing two very popular dog breeds. The Mini Australian Shepherd and Bichon Frise were chosen for the mix due in equal part to their stunning appearances, hypoallergenic qualities, and delightful personalities.

Inheriting the best of two breeds, Aussiechons display great intelligence, excellent social skills, and a most adorable drive towards fun adventures. Delighting dog lovers with their blue eyes, fluffy coats, and big brains, these designer dogs made it to the top of US dog popularity charts as soon as they took their first paw steps into the world.  

Although new as a breed, having only been around for a little over 20 years, the Aussiechon doesn’t have an extensive history. To gain a better understanding of the designer dog, let’s first learn more about the breeds that make up the Aussiechon.  

The Miniature Australian Shepherd, also known as Mini Aussie, MAS, and Mini American Shepherd, is the most popular dog breed in Western America, its popularity remaining unaltered since the 1970s. Their unique appearance and small size coupled with their keen intelligence and strong loyal tendencies are among the most desirable traits a dog could possess, and, in this case, the reason why they were chosen for the Aussiechon mix. Mini Aussies are the smaller version of Standard Australian Shepherds, who made their way to the United States during the 1800s.  

The Bichon Frise, a jewel in its own right, is one of the most adorable and well-behaved dog breeds around. These little white dogs originate from Tenerife in the Canary Islands. A beautiful dog that enjoyed the favor of the wealthy for many centuries, the Bichon Frise has been, throughout its history, one of the most loved companion pets at royal courts. Bichons are sweet, energetic, and happy-go-lucky dogs that impress with their upbeat personality and generosity in love. These adorable white fluffs were chosen for the Aussiechon mix for their hypoallergenic qualities, cuddly-good looks, and delightful personalities.
