When I was little, I always wanted a tri-colored papillion named Maxine. They're so cute :)

No, NO!! His coat's not defective! It might not be show quality, but if it keeps him warm and dry, then it's not defective! :)

Each of the three have very different coats - all functional...but I purchased Stuff from a breeder for the purpose of showing him, so his coat is the closest of the three to the breed standard.

They typically have their full coat by the age of 2-3 years old...and the males typically get more coat than the females. I also used ShowSheen (from my horses) after each bath so that I didn't break any hairs as I combed him out. It takes a bit of work to maintain a show coat, but I wouldnt worry about that for a pet :) You'll make yourself nuts!

I LOVE your Pap and that you rescued him!

I just got a retired show pap for my grandma. I wouldnt call paps snippy at all. Some are shy, but not snippy. At least none I have known. Here's a link that shows the one my grandma has - he is the third down on the right. He was called Danny, but that's my dad's name, so now he is Darby
