Most of our Papillons are adopted as close as possible to their foster homes. Each foster parent gives their heart and love to the butterflies in their care and it is hard to part with them. If you are interested in a Papillon that is not in your home state, you may still send an application, however, every effort is first made to place the dogs within a reasonable distance.We require that the applicant is willing to come to the home to meet the dog and to be sure the match is a good one.
While not all homes are suitable for the physically and emotionally fragile dogs that come into our rescue, we tend to have more people willing to rescue our Papillons than we have dogs available. We are grateful for the kindness of so many people. There may be a delay in finding the right dog for you, and each application is carefully scrutinized. It may take 2 weeks or more before you hear from someone in our volunteer organization.
Our adoption guidelines are stated preceeding the application page. Please read them carefully. Any transportation expenses are the full responsibility of the adopter. Suggested adoption donation:
For healthy dogs up to two years of age: $350-$450 For healthy dogs between the ages of two and six:$ 250-$350 For healthy dogs between the ages of six and nine: $150-$250 Geriatric or "special needs" dogs: donation is set on a case-by-case basis

Current Size: 12 Pounds

Dixie is full of energy and needs to have a family who loves to spend time with her. She does not really do well with competition! So it would be best if there are no other pets unless they are laid back and will let her be dominant.
Dixie is very loving and very protective so her human needs to be sure Dixie understands the rules set for her when a visitor comes over.
Dixie is a mix - but I have no idea with what! Her intelligence is definitely Papillon as she is one of the smartest dogs we have had. She learns quickly and want to please. She returns love with great affection and seems so grateful for the love and attention she gets in return.
Dixi is crate trained, walks well on a leash although she wants to walk faster than I can keep up! Daily exercise would be wonderful for her. Dixie is pretty good at house training and prefers to go outside - we have not taught her a signal to "go out" but I am sure she will learn one quickly.
We love Dixie very much - and admire her strength. We know she needs to have her very own family and be the light in someones life.
