I got my puppy he is 3 months old. I just want to know opinions whether he looks pure papillon ?
I just want to know if my puppy looks like a pure papillon. he is 3 months old i got him from a person who sells different breed dogs. His vet vaccination papers state he is papillon. I want to register him in CKC but i want opinions :)

He's a bit young to really tell, as many dogs don't develop their full breed traits until they are full-grown and many breeds look quite similar to papillons, such as the longhaired chihuahua (having one myself I cannont recount the number of times I've heard "is she a papillon?"). In regards to this 'person who sells different dog breeds' that does not sound very high in quality of care or pedigree, though some great breeders sell more than one breed, it is usually limited to 2, or 3 at the very most and they are very knowlegable about each one. Also, reputable breeders will give you their registration papers when you purchase them or soon after, and register with closed registration agencies like the AKC which verify pedigree. CKC takes no measures to verify anything in the parentage of dogs (so if you want to reg. with them, go ahead, they require no proof of anything), but this laxness also makes them very unrespected and rightfully so amongst registration agencies.
