I adopted a one year old Papillon mix from the shelter Thursday night. She is adorable and I have fallen completely in love with her already!
The shelter said she was a Papillon mix but didn't know what other breed or breeds might be in the mix. She is about 15" at the shoulder and weighs just under 20 lb., so she's definitely bigger than the Papillon breed standard. Her belly was shaved for spaying so I'm sure when it grows back she will have a fuller coat, however I don't think her coat is nearly as voluminous as a purebred Papillon. Her fur is long and silky and there's no undercoat. Also, her tail is plumed and nearly always over her back - very rarely is it down like it is in the picture taken of her at the shelter.
Personality-wise she is curious, happy and playful, and when she pants she looks like she's laughing. Her eyes are bright and full of intelligence and soul. She is very affectionate and follows me everywhere, even if I just go into another room for a minute. She is quick to sound the alarm when she sees or hears something outside.
Obviously I have fallen completely under her spell and the question is merely out of curiousity at this point, but I'd love to hear any guesses as to what else she is mixed with. I'm attaching a couple of pics:
