Small dogs are part of many AKC groups, so there is a perfect breed for every lover of little dogs when it comes to personality, activity level and coat type. They don’t necessarily need to work off loads of energy, so they are quite suitable for apartment life. But not all small dogs are lap warmers! Some can have personalities that are tough as nails.

If your family includes very young children, make sure the dog you’re considering has a space where it can be alone when necessary, or perhaps, research breeds that may better fit your family’s lifestyle. The fact is, some small dogs are too delicate to compete with a boisterous family of young children and need to live in quieter environments.
