Wish I could see his fur longer, lol. Papillons have very silky fur, which would come out in their offspring, along with their long ear fur length. It isn't a trait that gets skipped in generations much. Pomeranians have a more coarse hair, and they don't have that same long ear fur length. This is the reason I wish I could see his fur longer.

What really makes it seem more pap to me is his facial shape and nasal length. Poms tend to have a more scrunched face than paps.

Again, do you have a pic of his fur longer? Lol

I really hope I don't offend you in this. I own a pap, and I have to do research on dogs that my dog gets confused with so often. Oliver, my papillon, gets called a Chihuahua, pomeranian, and a chinese chin on a daily basis.

Not offended at all :3 People accused him of being a chihuahua while he was doing the "puppy uglies" in puppy school, that got annoying.

This is about as long as his fur is now :X We don't ever get him really trimmed or anything. I'm definitely all for knowing what this little guy is although dishing out the money on that blood test makes me wonder even more.

I see both breeds in him sometimes so it's really hard to guess. It's not like we paid for a purebred or anything (craigslist dog for 150 so you get what you pay for when your husband buys you a gift) so it's all just for fun since he seems pretty healthy.

His fur is definitely coarse except for around his ears, it's really soft. Even his chest fur isn't exceptionally soft or anything.

(excuse the weird eye editing thing <_<)
His snoot(as hubby calls it) is rather long for a pom which we noticed when he started growing into it.

How old is he? when Oliver was 6 months old, he had really scraggly fur from his ears. It totally looks like your baby's. I can definitely see the papillon face, though. LOL did you draw eyebrows on him? xD
