A small house dog can be an ideal pet, and when treated right will bring you lots of joy and companionship. There are many breeds of small dogs to choose from, so you can pick the one that most appeals to you.
Pomeranians, Poodles, Chihuahuas, Maltese, Yorkies, Maltipoos and Cockapoos are just a few of the more common small house dogs. You can see pictures of the various breeds by browsing through our adult dogs via the menu on the left.

A small house dog can require a lot of attention and care, particularly as compared with a bigger dog. They are more likely to get cold, and it’s far easier for them to get underfoot! Their small size is what makes them ideal for a house pet, though, and as long as you take care of them they will be a delightful addition to your family.

Because of their size, small house dogs are easy to take with you when you go traveling. They can ride along in a comfy carrier, or beside you in the car. You can even take your dog if you are traveling by airplane. Use these tips to ensure a smooth journey for both of you!
Small dogs can be particularly good for people living in smaller houses or apartments, as they don’t require as much space as a bigger dog. Their bed can be tucked away in a corner, and they are far less likely to be knocking your little kids around with their bulk and weight!
