Prefix : SZZAN (Papillon)
We are a very successful small boutique kennel. I have World Champion Arkeno lines from Canada and Europe.
As a breeder I strive to breed to the Papillon standard and thus produce puppies that make excellent companions and/or show prospects. All our puppies are socialized from an early age and raised in our home on our two acres of parkland. In general terms, the Papillon Breed is considered a healthy toy breed,frequently living until age 13 to 17 years of age.Papillons are very intelligent, athletic, and friendly.
They are the top performance dogs from the toy group.
Generally Papillons are known to suffer from only two major genetic problems PRA and Patellar Luxation.
Progressive Retinal Atrophy ( PRA ):This is a condition rarely seen but it is a genetic condition in Papillons that causes blindness sometime between 4 and 8 years of age. Both parents must be genetic carriers to produce a puppy with PRA.
Patellar Luxation: Patella luxation is thought to be a genetic condition that arises due to a shallow groove in the fibula that allows the ligament holding the patella in position to slip out of the groove and allow the Patella (kneecap) to slide out of position.
All our dogs are tested for both diseases.
