Dwarf Papillon?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Maleficent » Sat Sep 23, 2017 5:40 pm


What are these guys? They look like English spots to me (marking wise) and are apparently a newer breed to the US. I can't find anything about them except for a facebook page that doesn't explain them very well or the history.

They are basically a mini Checkered Giant. They do have a COD. That's all I've got :)

They're recently imported by randy shumaker & others in california. They have a COD right now -- three colors (black, blue & chocolate). The weights are 2 ½ to 4 ¼ pounds (much smaller than an english spot). They're a dwarf version of the papillon breed, which is similar to the checkered giant (originating from the same breed), except it comes in more colors and can have groupings of spots on the side instead of just the two spots like a checkered giant. This group imported them from a few different countries mostly from continental europe. I wouldn't hold your breath on getting some; the first trio that the COD presentation group sold went for $2650 at auction a few weeks ago. They don't want to sell too many until they've gotten further with the breed. Similar to mini checkereds which were imported around the same time.

That one in the picture doesn't look as much like a (american) dwarf papillon. The ears are very large.
Here's some dwarf papillon pictures, from shumaker (& maddie pratt I think)

I know I'm resurrecting a zombie thread but...the COD holders in California aren't the only ones who have these critters. There's several of us in Michigan who keep/breed these. I got my foundation trio for a couple hundred bucks. They are lively, active little goobers who love to play and are just an absolute delight. I got them as a secondary breed before a predator attack and some bad luck drove me out of English Lops...so right now they are the only buns I've got. They are just wonderful!!!
