Originally from France, the Papillon (fr. “The butterfly”) is not just adorable, but also extremely intelligent and self-assured. Sociable with both kids and strangers, this dog breed gets along quite well with other pets. It’s important for the owner to train their Papillon from an early age, otherwise he may develop an aggressive tendency towards other people and dogs. Unlike other breeds, you may like to know that Papillons have a very long life expectancy (up to 17 years) and judging by their adorable features, they will surely fill your life with joy and happiness.
