A little about the Papillon

 

The Papillon is known for his dainty physique and flared butterfly-like ears. They are outgoing and keen people pleasers. They will socialise well with cats and other dogs in the home, even larger dogs will not typically phase him. They are highly obedient, receptive to training and easy to care for. They do not need much exercise, are very adaptable, and thus are suited to city living.
