Owning a little dog has become a craze like no other in American society. What with all the various types of little dogs available, it can be hard to figure out which one you want. Hopefully, my article will help you narrow your search.
First off, why are people so crazy over little dogs? For one, they don't take up much space. They are especially great if you live in a very populated metropolitan city with heavily trafficked sidewalks. Your little dog can swerve in and out of the traffic with ease. Second, they don't produce as much waste (poop) as their larger counterparts. Nor do they need as much food, water, or treats! Not only are little dogs easier to manage, but they have the cutest, perky personality ever. They bounce around all over the place, begging for attention and love. It doesn't get any better than that, folks!
Alright, let's talk about the different types of little dogs;
These little cuties are by far the most popular breed of little dogs. Everybody seems to have one, even celebrities like Paris Hilton. And don't forget about the Taco Bell Chihuahua: "Yo Quierro Taco Bell". Furthermore, it is a fact that Chihuahuas are the smallest breed of dog in the entire world. They certainly don't act that way though. Chihuahuas aren't afraid to act 10 times larger than they are. They will bark at bigger dogs, chase cars, and gladly greet strangers. They are also very intelligent, but awfully difficult to train due to their uncanny stubbornness. If you do want to train your Chihuahua, my advice is to give them a chalupa. Hopefully, this will get them going. Wink Wink
Yorkies are second only to the Chihuahua. Yorkies are fun loving, full of life, and very intelligent. They are best recognized for their long, smooth hair. In fact, Yorkies are the most prominent winners of dog competitions because of their unique, hairy look. Unlike Chihuahuas, Yorkies are much easier to train. You can easily teach your Yorkie to sit, roll over, and even shake your hand. Poodles
These thickly haired pups require constant grooming to maintain their look. Their hair is short, but very curly and thick. The hair of a poodle can be twisted up into all sorts of weird looks. Poodles are especially popular at dog shows and circuses worldwide. They are more quiet natured than their peers, but highly intelligent and capable of performing all sorts of stunts.
Pugs are the dogs you see with the wrinkly, dark face. They look like pigs (due to their shape) with a dog's face at the end. They are friendly dogs that socialize well with their peers. They are energetic, social, loving, and a great dog to have. The only problem is that they are not all that bright. They can be quite difficult to train.
This list only mentions the most popular dog breeds. Don't feel restricted to simply choosing the most popular. There are many other breeds available.
