What’s good and bad about the Papillon?

Pros:

  • He’s perfect size for apartment and condo dwellers
  • An affectionate, devoted companion who enjoys being fussed over
  • Very smart and trainable; you’ll see many Papillons in dog competitions

Cons:

  • Daily grooming is best; shedding is noticeable
  • Large households may overwhelm him
  • Too fragile for roughhousing
  • His fragility combined with his energy can be difficult for some owners to manage

They are cute.
