Papillons are a lively Toy Breed which are dedicated to their families. There are two varieties, the erect ear (Papillon) , and the drop ear (Phalene). The word Papillon is French in origin and means Butterfly. Phalene is also French, and means Night Moth. These beautiful little dogs can adapt to most any climates and do well in an apartment dwelling or in the wide open spaces of country living. They love to ride in the car and typically love to meet other people and their dogs. Outgoing, curious, and strong-spirited, papillons rank as one of the top toy dogs in Obedience and Agility competitions.

I got my first Papillon in 1991 and I have loved them ever since. They easily steal your heart with their bubbly personality and willingness to please.
