In any case, there’s an ideal arrangement with regards to getting a canine that is little, lovable, and not really an infant! There are huge amounts of types of little canines that your family will love to have around for a considerable length of time and who will look simply like a doggy long after the pup stage!My two children have been pushing me to get a pup for quite a long time. Rather, we have one old, lethargic canine. That is on the grounds that with regards to raising a family, a little dog is a great deal of work to add on, and it’s a ton of work that I don’t know I’m prepared to do. Little canines are incredible for such a significant number of reasons. You don’t have to have a major yard or an immense house for them to go around in. Also, they’re very convenient. Presently, many individuals love huge canines, and I thoroughly get that as the proprietor of a major canine myself. Be that as it may, the more I consider adding another option to our family, the better and better a little canine begins to look. Here are 15 of the best types of little canines that make incredible friends.
1. Alaskan Klee Kai
OMG. If you’re a fan of huskies, you’re gonna love these cuties. Huskies themselves are already totally adorable. But the Alaskan Klee Kai is a smaller, more puppy-like version! They only ever weigh up to 15 pounds, making them the perfect pup for smaller homes or families that don’t want a larger dog. They’re known to be great cuddle buddies, but they have a good amount of energy, making them great for families with kids.
2. French Bulldog
French bulldogs are a hugely popular breed of small dogs. And for good reason! These stocky little guys are freakin’ cute. They’re full of rolls and squishiness. Plus, they’ve got a sweet yet serious expression. Luckily, they’re super mild-mannered, so if you don’t have a huge living space, they will fit right in with ease.
3. Rat Terrier
Don’t mind the yucky name! Rat terriers are great pups to have around. They were originally bred for farm work, but their background makes them great at hunting bugs and rodents! For city dwellers, a rat terrier is a great small dog to have around. They also have a demeanor that’s as warm and fuzzy are their beautiful coat of fur.
You can’t get a pup much cuter than a Yorkipoo. The cross between a Yorkshire terrier and a poodle is pretty much a perfect mix of sweet and adorable. They’re super-smart and playful pups, too, making them great for families. Another bonus to this breed is that they’re hypoallergenic!
5. English Cocker Spaniel

Most spaniels make for pretty fantastic dogs. These ones are particularly great for families because their personalities are simply charming (insert British accent). The English cocker spaniel isn’t the smallest breed of dogs on our list, leaning a bit more toward medium-sized, and these dogs need some outside time, too, but they’re so cute and playful, we couldn’t leave them off.
These little guys and gals are full of energy, so look out! Don’t let their small size fool you. They’re quick. Whippets can reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour! That makes them the fastest animal of their size, according to the American Kennel Club. Still, they have tiny little legs, so if you run them around enough, you can tucker them out and snuggle them up all afternoon. It’s a win-win.
Some people are deeply loyal to the beagle breed. I mean, if you’ve ever snuggled up with one, it’s hard to argue that they are completely adorable. They are certainly spirited, though, and are known to howl! But otherwise, the beagle is smart, playful, and totally down for family adventures. They also have a great sense of smell, which makes them super curious.
8. Cocker Spaniel
Cocker spaniels are some of the sweetest dogs you can find — that’s why so many families love to have them as pets. They’re highly intelligent, which makes them easy to train, and they seem to love all people, especially kids. Plus, they’re just so darn pretty. You’ll want to pet them, brush them, and snuggle them up all day long.
We all have a friend who is totally obsessed with dachshunds. It makes sense, because these little guys are cute, cuddly, and pretty hilarious. They can get into some trouble with their short little legs and often need a boost, but they’ll fit in perfectly in smaller dwellings. They are generally happy little guys, too, have fun personalities, and love to play!
