Hey all! So I’ve found it hard to find pure black papillons online and a forum on here from several years ago makes me wonder if it’s even possible. I believe my dog is a papillon, but if he is he could be extremely rare. Even considered impossible to some people. What do you think?

This is my sweet pup, Moose. He used to be solidly black, but he’s an old guy now and he’s got a beard 😂 He’s graying a bit in his old age, but when I first met him he was fully black. Can any pap experts tell if he’s a papillon or not? I’m curious. Is he some super rare anomaly? Or is he a mix?

He’s probably somewhere around 16 years old by now. He was a rescue when my sister got him, and eventually she gave him to me. I’m preparing my heart for his eventual death, I don’t even want to think about it. But I know he’s getting old. He’s a toughie, but I’ve gotta cherish the time I have left with him. He’s been through a lot and he means the world to me.

Awe... he looks to be a real sweetie. I would be more inclined to think long coated Chihuahua myself, or possible a Chi x something else cross. I've never seen a Papillion without some white on them.

Solid black is genetically impossible in a papillon, so he's either a papillon mix or perhaps long-haired chi, as others have said. He's very cute!
