Hi :)

We have just become the owners of an adorable 14 week old Papillion pup, the breeder told us they go through an "ugly stage", where they lose all their fur. I have looked online out of interest to see what he will look like at this stage but have been unable to find any pictures. Does anyone have any pictures showing a dog at this stage?

Thanks in advance :)

Hello! We need more papillons here. There's quite a few pap owners so I'm sure they'll all post pictures of their crew. Of mine, i've only had three of them since they were pups. Beau went through an awful uglies stage but I didn't realize it until he was older and I looked back at pictures. He was so skinny and lanky. Bernard never went through the uglies. He was one day a cute puppy and the next he looked adult. I look back at pictures and it just isn't there. Summer was way awkward as a youngster but I didn't own her at the time and have no pictures. She's still lanky, shorter haired, and big footed so as a teen she was just totally awkward.

My newest is just hitting the 'uglies'. All legs and so skinny with short hair.



my friend's Phalene Lacey is near the same age. We were comparing the 'uglies' the other day.



They don't go through as awkward a stage as some breeds though. shelties are one of the worsts.

Braylor's also has a lot of pics of dogs aging which could be helpful- http://www.braylorspapillons.com/sires.htm

Just click a name on the sires or dams pages and you can see them grow up.

ETA: I think this is the 7th papillon puppy on DF now! Crazy!

Post pictures, we love to see them! :D

We've got another one that looks like Nia and Roxy! We have triplet paps!

You can see here, scroll allll the way down to 2 comparison pics I posted =) That's Roxy and Nia, both red sables. From one side of their face they look pretty similar and pretty much like Louis too haha.

Nia is 2 days shy of 10 months old. She's not that light colored anymore. She's more of a dark sable currently mostly on her forehead but the colors are still changing. and she lost quite a lot of her blaze so she's only got a thin line.

Nia now:
