Rescue Me ID: 14-10-13-00041Plato (male)

Papillon Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    When we are asked about a special rescue puppy that is snuggly, sweet and very fun-loving, we can't help but think of Plato. His smile is shining...and maybe just a bit mischievous. Plato's foster mom tells us she knows it's morning when Plato's little head comes under the blanket...getting closer and closer..and then a huge kiss of love. This curious and really, really smart 7 month old, 12 lb (anticipated to weigh approximately 15 lbs when full-grown) Papillon/Cocker mix appears to have picked up the cotton-soft coat of his mix as well as the great personality of both breeds. Plato is a truly fun and devoted companion. As a puppy, he is ... (Read More)a blank slate just waiting for guidance and love (belly rubs are great too!) to give him a sense of trust in the world. There aren't many visible signs that Plato was in a very scary high-kill shelter facing euthanasia. He's occasionally shy and can be a touch tentative in certain situations..but a warm hug and reassuring words..and Plato bounces back and cuddles just a bit closer. We picture Plato as the best friend to retirees or families with lots of time for a kind and cuddly companion. Plato would be so loyal.. and overjoyed to share his love and good will. There's also no question that Plato would be the most popular guy on the block. Once comfortable, he loves to engage and just be his entertaining, adorable self. Even though Plato is usually up for pretty much any activity, he's never pushy or yappy. Exercise..perhaps long, walks to socialize with neighbors..and mental stimulation that comes from his time with people and other gentle yet playful dogs... is important to this guy to keep him happy and well-adjusted. it's not that he requires extensive amounts, just enough to keep him healthy and stimulated. Plato would also enjoy time with older (12+) dog-loving kids. He's such an easy guy to bring along. You can just scoop him up and he'll cuddle happily in your arms. Or grab a leash and Plato will be ready to be out and about to the park, a trail or just visiting with dog-loving friends. Plato derives so much joy from his relationships, we would love to see him in a family that loves him dearly and enjoys time together...he's a great pup who deserves this in his life. This adorable and really humorous Papillon mix has a stunning coat that will grow softer and healthier as he gets great nutrition and loses his puppy hair. Plato will require periodic grooming to keep his coat shining and matt-free. Plato will arrive on transport in Denver 10/17/2014. If interested in this snuggly and sweet puppy, please fill out an application at and submit to (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Papillon in Colorado
    Papillon Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Papillon is an elegant toy breed with large ears and a gracefully curved tail. Papillons are active, playful, and full of personality. Papillons do well with older children and cats with whom they are socialized, but can sometimes be combative with other dogs. Housebreaking a Papillon may require patience. Papillons love to play outside, and can be protective and territorial. This breed does best with a yard, but some Papillons adapt fine to urban apartment life.

lnteresting Papillon Trivia Low-Cost Colorado Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Papillon is French for butterfly. Papillon dogs get their name because of the butterfly-like shape of their ears. Papillons are a very old European breed that has been around for over 700 years. Many Renaissance paintings depict Papillons. A myth exists that Marie Antoinette carried her Papillon on her way to the guillotine.
