About Small Puppies

Small dogs are bred directly from standard sized members of their breed to become smaller. These dogs can range from miniature, to toy, to teacup sizes. Miniature dogs are smaller than their standard counterparts, while toy breeds are smaller than miniatures. The smallest dogs are teacup breeds, which weigh less than 4lb fully grown. These little versions of bigger dogs can live in smaller homes and get more use from smaller yards. That being said, these breeds can sometimes be tougher to train....

What Small Dogs are Best for Families?

Some of the best mini, toy, and teacup breeds for families include the Cocker Spaniel, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Pug, and Beagle. These breeds are loving and loyal towards their family and also good with children, whether young or older kids. These breeds are also less active and require less exercise, making them easier to manage for families with busy schedules. Some breeds such as the Maltese, Poodle, and Bichon Frise are low-shedding and considered "hypoallergenic". These breeds can be favorable for families with allergic or asthmatic members.

What Is the Easiest Small Dog to Own?

Many small dogs are lower maintenance and may be easier to own. For instance, Pugs are known for their laid-back personalities. They also have short hair which makes them easy to groom and maintain. The Bichon Frise is another breed that is low-shedding and has a cheerful disposition. You may also consider the Maltese, which requires little exercise and is hypoallergenic. While low-maintenance can be defined in terms of grooming and exercise needs, you can also consider the breed's trainability, braking levels, or friendliness towards strangers, based on your needs and lifestyle.

What Is the Friendliest Small Dog?

Many small dogs are known for their affectionate natures. Some breeds that are known particularly to be friendly are the Bichon Frise, Boston Terrier, Beagle, and Pug. These breeds are loving towards family, kids, and strangers. Some breeds however are friendly with their immediate family but less so with strangers or children — for instance, Chihuahuas are known to be loving with their owners but can be protective with strangers.

How Much Do Small Dogs Cost?

Small dogs can cost anywhere from $850 to $3,000, with most small breed puppies costing $1,000 to $2000. The cost of the puppy depends on its breed, age, breeder, and location. Some small breeds such as French Bulldogs can cost above the usual range given their high demand. When purchasing a puppy, remember that the upfront purchase cost is only part of the equation. Other expenses you will have to pay for include the food, toys, veterinary care, grooming, dog walking, daycare, and other expenses.

Adopting a small dog or puppy from a rescue or shelter may be less expensive. However, you might still need to pay for vaccinations, spaying, or neutering. Some dogs in shelters may also require additional health checks or behavioral training compared to a newborn pup. If you are considering adopting a small breed pup, consider Tobie’s Small Dog Rescue and Tiny Paws Small Dog Rescue. Adopting a small dog is not only potentially less expensive than buying from a breeder, but is also a great way to make a dog happy by giving him or her a second chance.

What Is the Smallest Dog Breed?

The Chihuahua is the smallest dog breed according to the American Kennel Club (AKC). in the world. Chihuahuas usually weigh between 2 and 6 pounds and are 6-9 inches in height. Don't be fooled by their small size! These dogs are known for their big personalities. They can be opinionated, vocal,
demanding, and protective of their territory. Given their small size and attachment to their primary owner, they make excellent companions for the elderly. This breed is active and enjoys going on walks or strolls in nature. They are also quite intelligent and can be trained from an early age to learn various tricks and behaviors.

How Do I Find a Reputable Small Dog Breeder?

It can be difficult to find a reputable small dog breeder. However, this is an important step to ensure that you are getting a healthy and well-raised puppy. Here are some tips to help you find the right small dog breeder:

  1. Research different breeds and find the right match for your lifestyle and preferences
  2. Ask friends, family, and veterinarians for recommendations of good small dog breeders
  3. Contact breed organizations in your area or nationally and ask for a list of reputable breeders
  4. Check with selective organizations such as Mawoo Pets for vetted breeders in your area
  5. When you find a breeder, visit their premises; ask to see the puppy's parents and get a tour of the breeding facility; ensure that it's clean and well-maintained.
  6. Ask the breeder to provide genetic testing results and health clearances for the puppy's parents
  7. If something feels amiss, walk away. Red flags include the breeder being unwilling to answer your questions or the breeding facility feeling unclean, unsafe, or unethical.
