Petland’s Top 5 Small Breed Dogs

May 9, 2022

Small breeds are much beloved because of a range of factors including ease of care, the fact that they fit in small apartments, and very essential, they can go just about anywhere with you. If you are wondering what breed to go for yourself, here is Petland’s top 5 small breeds of dogs: 

Maltese

The Maltese is one of the most common breeds of small dogs and comes with its characteristic soft and silky white coat. This breed is well known for its loyalty and is also very playful and full of energy. They are a very brave breed and were a rave back in the day when the Roman Empire still stood. 

Yorkshire Terrier

Commonly known as the “Yorkie”, this popular dog breed is highly intelligent and takes to training easily. They are energetic and brave and require only moderate exercise. They have also been used as therapy dogs at some point in history, specifically during World War II. 

Miniature Dachshund

The miniature Dachshund is well-loved because of its amusing, yet adorable looks. They are very loyal, fierce protectors, and active. Their short coat requires only minimum grooming and she’d very infrequently. Given their part terrier and part hound roots, they can be feisty on occasion. 

Shih Tzu

Shih Tzu’s bright eyes and tiny face can be regarded as their main selling point. In addition to this, they have flowing hair which you can tie up in a knot to keep out of their eyes and you can maintain a short coat as well. A fun fact to note is that they were the major breed that Chinese emperors owned. 

Pomeranian

The Pomeranian has a fox-like appearance and a beautiful fluffy coat. They relate well with other breeds and are hugely intelligent and cheerful. They make for excellent watchdogs and can be taught a trick or two with time. They shed regularly and require frequent grooming. 

Conclusion 

If you’re looking for a small dog breed, then you can opt for any of the options mentioned. They are excellent breeds and you would fall in love with them in no time.
