Smile Getting a Papillon with two terriers?

Hi there, I have two four year old JRT's (not Parsons) and would like another dog to do agility but also show to a champion. I have researched the breeds and went to Crufts to see the Papillon and reall liked them. They are very friendly, good at agility, easy to groom and very pretty. Plus they are a healthy breed.

Since it would be doing agility when it's a little older, it will probably be on the bigger side of the scale -probably 9-10 inches.

My dogs are one male and one female, littermates, neutered and spayed. They are calm members of their breed and the male has a little growl aggression towards bigger bouncy excited dogs/puppies but he has become much better. He loves smaller puppies/dogs.

The female has no issues what-so-ever.

I do agility with my current dogs. Been in classes for two years and will start to compete next year. Since I walk, train and spend the most time with them, they are most attached to me. They are very obiedent and love sleepy time on my lap just as much as five minute long zoomies.

I have researched the Papillon within an inch of its life and think this is the best breed for what I would like.

The only thing that worries me is the fragility. I would take the puppy (not getting a rescue) to puppy school and crate train it. The JRT's have their bed, food and water bowls behind a baby gate in the utility room.

I would not leave them alone (after introducing them properly and making sure they get along), but was wondering if when the puppy's bones are fully developed and they like each other, I could let them play together?
