About the Paperanian
The Paperanian is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Papillon and the Pomeranian. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Paperanian is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.
