Apartment dwellers have many breeds to choose from when selecting a dog. The size of your living space isn't the only consideration because many large dogs have lower activity levels and are more than happy to lounge on the sofa. There are breeds that require high energy and plenty of space, so they may not be best suited for a smaller apartment. Some small dogs with high energy are satisfied with indoor playtime or a brisk walk. Just make sure to consider your neighbors when choosing a dog: You'll want a dog that doesn't bark incessantly and is polite when meeting other people, in the elevator, on the stairs or in the lobby.
