My Dog Does Not Bark, Instead He Howls.?

I just bought a dog from a rescue place. He is a four year old bichon frise.
He will not bark, he just howls instead.
Anybody ever heard of this?
What the heck is going on?
J-Something. Thanks for answering my question, but SHEESH!
I'm NOT botherign the dog. I was just wondering about him not barking and howling instead.
I thought maybe something was done to him at the puppy mill where he was raised.

Now I feel better knowing it is normal.

its nothing weird…some dogs just dont bark…they prefer to howl…Huskys do the same thing and many hound dogs prefer to howl as well…I think the howl is cute icon smile My dog does not bark, instead he howls.? you just have a unique pup

    So? Some dogs don't bark even though they have the ability. It's just the form of communication this dog has gotten in the habit of doing. Relax. Leave the poor dog alone.

    dogs don't bark for nothing.
    my barks sometimes only if i scold it.
    most of the time he just howls.
    it takes time before he barks anyway.

    YEAH I HAVE A MINIATURE BEAGLE AND THATS WHAT HE DOES ALSO HOWLS LIKE NO OTHER. MOST DOGS TAKE ON THEIR NATURAL BARK WHICH IS A HOWL, INSTEAD OF A BARK, THEY TAKE AFTER THEIR COUSINS THE WOLVES.
