The Papillon is a toy spaniel that originated in France in the 16th century. The name “Papillon” means butterfly in French and it was named this because of its fringed ears that are shaped like a butterfly. The variety of Papillon that has dropped ears is called a “Phalène”, which means moth in French. They were often painted in famous works of art during the Renaissance. Papillons were bred purely for companionship, and became the beloved pets of many noblewomen during this era. They were brought to the United States and were officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1935.
Papillons are small dogs that weigh about 5 to 10 pounds. They have a long, silky coat with unique, erect ears covered in fur that gives them the name “Papillon”. They have short, slender snouts and delicate legs and paws. They come in a variety of colors that has a base color of white with many colors and patterns of markings. Most Papillons have white on their muzzles and a white blaze between their eyes. They have long tails that are curled over their bodies and covered with long fur. There are two different varieties of ears: Papillon (erect ears), and Phalène (dropped ears). These two types are can be born in the same litter, but most breeders avoid mixing the two types because it can result in ears that are an intermediate between the two desired types.
Papillons are friendly, intelligent, and gentle dogs. They are small and delicate dogs, however, so young children should be supervised around them so that they are not injured. They are very easy to train because of their intelligence and willingness to learn. Papillons make excellent apartment dogs because of their small size. They love to play, but can be exercised indoors or outdoors. Many Papillons even compete in competitions such as agility and obedience trials. They also enjoy going for walks with their owners. They are excellent lapdogs and companions, which makes them a great pet for all different types of people and families.
Papillons require regular brushing and grooming because of their long coats. They do not shed as much as some other breeds because they don’t have an undercoat. The Papillon is generally a healthy breed, although some do have problems with their kneecaps. This condition is fairly rare, however. The Papillon is a loyal companion who makes a wonderful family pet.This text was written by jayjay821
