So you’re looking to adopt an Bolognese, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The Bolognese is small, stocky, and squarely built. He is rather serene and inactive, and devoted to his master and his people. They can be shy towards strangers, but warm up quickly if they are properly socialized. Prone to separation anxiety, the Bolognese does not do well alone for long periods of time. They would be ill-suited for people with a 9-5 workday. Bolos are an old breed, known by royals and noblemen in Roman times, and were given as precious gifts between the wealthy and powerful. A small companion breed originating in Italy, the Bolognese is a calm, faithful dog with a long, fluffy pure-white coat. They are very playful, easy-going and love people.”
An Bolognese typically ranges from 25.4cm to 30.48cm in height, and weighs from 2.4947580350000003kg to 4.082331330000001kg.
