According to Dog Breed, Bich-poos vary in appearance depending on hybrid type. A Bich-poo that is 50 percent Bichon Frise and 50 percent poodle tends to be a little bigger, a small to medium-sized dog. A Bich-poo with more Bichon Frise than poodle is toy-sized. Size also depends on the type of poodle, which come in several different sizes.
