These dogs are most popular in black or white coats but can be found with light brown markings as well.
 
Like other small dogs, the Papitese might think it’s big enough to pick a fight with a big dog. Early socialization will help – and you should introduce your pup to larger dogs under supervision. 
 
Overall, the Papitese is extremely intelligent, affectionate, and even acrobatic! They are wonderful companions for almost any size and type of family.
