They have energy to burn, but then they are all geared up for a snuggle session on the sofa. Ready to add a small dog to your family? Whether you live in the city or the 'burbs, we’ve got you covered with the right doggo to meet your needs.
From the dainty papillon that loves to spread kisses to the spunky miniature bull terrier that’s energetic and exuberant, we think you’ll find your match. There are designer dogs on this list, too — cross breeds that couldn’t get more cute and cuddly, like the cavapoo and yorkipoo. Adorable.
