If you’re looking for a small dog who’s sweet, happy and alert but not aggressive or noisy, the Papillon is the pup for you. It’s hard to resist this dog’s cute little face, fluffy butterfly-like ears and petite little body weighing no more than 10 pounds. He’s happy and outgoing with a dash of elegance.
Around since at least the 16th century, the Papillon was developed in France and soon branched out to Spain and Italy as it rose in popularity. The breed is surprisingly robust and sturdy for its small frame. Active and curious, he loves getting exercise and takes well to training.
