Pup Of The Week


A tiny dog, measuring 8 to 11 inches at the shoulder, you can still spot a Papillon a block away thanks to the large, wing-shaped ears that give the breed its name (“papillon” is French for “butterfly”). Some Paps have erect ears; in others, known as the Phalene type, the ears are down. Paps are dainty and elegant, with a plumed tail, and a long, silky coat of several color combinations, the base color being white. More robust than they look, Paps are little dogs for all seasons and reasons. They thrive in warm or cool climates, in town or country, and are eager to join family fun. They are excellent agility dogs and are consistent winners at the sport’s highest levels; less ambitious owners can train them to do all kinds of tricks.

Mini Dachshund

The Dachshund, meaning “badger dog” in German, is a lively breed with a friendly personality and keen sense of smell. Known for their long and low bodies, they are eager hunters that excel in both above and below ground work. According to the AKC registration statistics, they are one of the most popular breeds and come in three different coat varieties: Smooth, Wire-haired or Long-haired. And they can be miniature or standard size.

Teacup Yorkie

There is no denying the Teacup Yorkie’s extreme adorableness, and their happy-go-lucky, spirited personality can be very appealing, but they can be challenging because they’re so fragile.  Even as adults, they’re only two to four pounds, so they tend to be best in a one-pet home.
