Small Dog Breeds I Love

Beagles are energetic, fun-loving dogs, and great around children which makes them a wonderful family companion. A very smart dog that is easily trained with a highly sensitive sense of smell. Beagles have short coats which makes grooming easy.

However, because Beagles have a natural flare for hunting, and have a tendency to follow the nose, they should be kept in a well-fenced home. In addition, because they are very active dogs, they need to be taken out for walks at least twice a day.


Dachshunds come in three different kinds – the smooth haired, wirehaired and the longhaired dachshund. Its coat ranges from cream, tan, grayish, red, black and a combination of these colors. There is a miniature dachshund and a larger one.

In Germany, Dachshunds were used as Badger hunters. It got its name from the German word “Dachs” which meands Bader. These dogs have long body and short legs which give it a fun, clownish appearance.  Quite appropriate because these buddies are fun-loving, friendly and simply dogs who love people.

However, dachshunds do have a temper so they can get easily become annoyed being with small children. If you have other dogs in your home, you should also be aware that Dachshunds have a tendency to get jealous and stubborn. However, when properly treated, dachshunds can be the sweetest dog breed you can ever have.

Chinese Shar-Pei

Isn’t he cute??? This wrinkled buddy is an intelligent, calm, very devoted breed which makes it great as a family dog. Despite the size, a Shar-pei is a very alert and reliable guard dog. A Shar-pei is a strong breed so they must not be left alone with children. Shar-peis also need proper training as they can be stubborn, shy, or overprotective when not handled correctly.


As its name suggest, the Goldendoodle is a combination of two breeds –the Golden Retriever and Poodle. This breed is an intelligent, loving, friendly dog both to children and other animals. This breed does not shed so much and is easily groomed. Goldendoodles love to learn and they respond to training very well. They also love water when trained at an early age. Awwww…. how adorable!!!
