Small Dog Breeds Can be A Joy for Years

Small dogs can be such a joy and a long time source of companionship.

s Small dog breeds often have tons of personality packed into a small body.

They are versatile, as there are breeds for all types of people. Whether you are a senior citizen, a family, are active or have limited mobility, a small dog can be just right for you.

Small dogs can be easier to handle than bigger dogs and don’t require as much room and food. They are great for people living in apartments and city dwellers too.(unless you decide on a Jack Russell Terrier…that is another story)

If you’re thinking of getting a small dog, just make sure to do your homework and find the breed that’s right for you. Some can be snippy and some can be more “barky” than others.

Try to match your lifestyle and living conditions to the dog’s needs.
