The Phalene Dog standard is exactly the same as the the standard of the Papillon dog, with the ears as the only exception.
As with the erect ear Papillon, the ears should be large,have rounded tips, and a rather wide base, and as an adult have long silky hair coverage on the ear.
One should not mistake a "soft" ear in Phalene , or Papillon Dogs.
A soft ear is an unstable ear, not up, nor down, or only the tips fold over, or one ear up, one ear down. Soft ears are considered a fault in each breed variety.
