Papillon means 'Butterfly' in French, and it's also the same of a certain type of companion dog, with was originally bred in France to be lap dogs for French royalty. They're depicted in French paintings dating back centuries ago, and (to me at least!) they're the best dogs ever. They're descended from both the Spitz family of dogs and the Spaniels, and were originally called 'Squirrel Spaniels' because of the fluffy, curled tail. Then they were called Papillons because of the unique, butterfly-shaped ears.
Personality-wise, they're very athletic and love to run, rarely bark, they bond quickly with their owners, and get separation anxiety a lot.
They stand 8 to 11 inches high at the shoulder, weight 4 to 9 pounds, and are very healthy with relatively long lifespans- 12 to 16 years. They also have long and silky coats that don't tangle because they're so silky.
Papillons are ALWAYS either White and brown, white and black, or white, brown and black. If they're a solid color or any colors other than those, it means they're not purepred. It's common to see Pomeranian + Papillon mixes.
(I need to stop now. I could about them all day.)
