Yorkillon is not a purebred dog. It is a designer breed between the Papillon and the Yorkie. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross.
Papillon Going back nearly 700 years, the Papillon is one of the oldest breeds of dog, with a recorded history in Europe. The breed originally only had dropped ears and was called the "epagneul nain" or "dwarf spaniel." Much of the breed's development is known because of its depiction in paintings. This tiny breed is recognizable in 13th through 15th century Italian paintings in the Renaissance period. They were often painted on the laps of French and Spanish noblewomen. The dog was later known as the Continental Toy Spaniel, which is the official name the FCI standard goes by. They were sometimes referred to as simply a Toy Spaniel. Because of the tail’s long fringing and the way it is carried curled over the back the Papillon was once called a "Squirrel Spaniel." The Papillon was first recognized by the AKC in 1915. The Papillon is a small, fine-boned dog. The small head is slightly rounded between the ears with a well-defined stop. The muzzle is somewhat short and thin, tapering to the nose. The dark, medium-sized, round eyes have black rims (it looks like eye shadow). The large ears can either be erect or dropped with rounded tips. Papillons with drop ears are called Phalene Papillons (Moth). Papillons with erect ears are called Papillons which in French means butterfly. (This name was given to them because their ears are fringed as to resemble the ears of a butterfly). Our Papillon (Delaney) has erect ears. The teeth meet in a scissors bite. The long tail is set high, carried over the body and covered with long hair. The straight, long, fine, single coat has extra frill on the chest, ears, back of the legs and the tail. Coat color is white with patches of any color except for liver. A mask of a color other than white covers both ears and eyes from back to front. The Papillon is sometimes called the butterfly dog, because the ears look like butterfly wings. It is a friendly, intelligent dog that is tougher than it looks, and loves outdoor exercise. It is a playful, lively, amusing, animated and charming little dog. Affectionate, gentle, patient, and proud, it loves to cuddle and enjoys a good romp outdoors. They are steady, obedient and are not yappers. Papillons can be trained to perform small tricks. Some of its talents include: watchdog, agility, competitive obedience, and performing tricks.
