PAPILLONS AND CHILDREN.
Papillons are generally good with children, but they have a delicate,fragile structure; and that makes them un-suitable for living with small children.Rough and wild activities and Paps do not mix well; they can easily suffer a broken limb if dropped, or have a spinal cord injury.There are a lot of somewhat bigger Papillons out there; around the 8-12 LBS range. Choose a puppy with that expected weight range, if you really want a Pap and you do have smaller children.
