Although petite in stature, small dogs pack big personality punches. They tend to travel well and are playful and energetic. Small-sized dogs make for cuddly companions, while their loyalty and alertness make them good watchdogs. They don’t require much exercise, but small-sized dogs do need regular grooming.
Notable choices for small dog breeds include the Bichon Frise, Cairn Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier, Lhasa Apso, Miniature Poodle, Pekingese, Pug, and Shih Tzu.
