General Description

The Papillon, also called the Continental Toy Spaniel, is a breed of dog of the spaniel type. One of the oldest of the toy spaniels, it derives its name from its characteristic butterfly-like look of the long and fringed hair on the ears. A Papillon with dropped ears is called a Phalene.

General Health

Uterine inertia and eclampsia are common.

Character and Temperament

Friendly, energetic, happy, intelligent and alert


Papillons are lively little dogs but will just as happily jump at a chance of a cuddle, and they will play for a walk. Around 30 minutes of exercise daily is usually sufficient to keep them happy.
