Small Dogs - Different Breeds, Different Personalities
Small dog breeds are great pets, but since their personalities
are all different, it's a good idea to look at their individual
characteristics to see if they fit with your lifestyle.
Pomeranians developed from a much larger dog breed and seem to
have retained the mellow character. They are good with children
if they have been raised with them from puppy hood. They are
playful and active. They tend to bark and require daily
Chihuahuas are an interesting small breed. I have raised
several herds - and that is a good word for a group of Chihuahuas
- and their temperament is a bit different from other small dogs.
They can be very aggressive towards other dog breeds. I adopted
one Chihuahua who kept attacking a German Shepherd who finally
bit her. After she got out of the hospital she went after him
again. I ended up with her because she wasn't going to quit
attacking bigger dogs. Some Chihuahuas will growl and nip at
small children. Good points - Chihuahuas are very loyal and
affectionate. They don't require as much exercise as other small
breeds so they make ideal pets for apartment dwellers or older
people. They are good with cats.
Good with children and other animals, the Boston terrier is a
good small dog for families. They are suitable for any lifestyle.
They can be aggressive chewers. Their short coat is easy to keep

aggressive if not trained properly. Very intelligent and lively,
they require a lot of attention and discipline.

is not suitable for families with children because they are very
Shitzu or Shih tzu:
Good natured and non-aggressive, these friendly little dogs
make great family pets. They require daily brushing but their
hair is non-shedding. Good with other animals.
These little dogs make good family pets. They are good with
children as well as other animals. Very intelligent, easy to
train and lively. Their coat doesn't shred.
Not a hound but a terrier bred to go after vermin, the breed
is lively and affectionate. Good with family members but will
become aggressive to children outside the family. They make good
watchdogs and will bark frequently to alert their owners.
Very fierce and loyal, these little dogs are not good around
children or other animals. These are good dogs for the elderly.
Their coats require a good deal of grooming.
Great with children, okay with other dogs but not tolerant of
cats. This unique breed makes a fine pet. Distrustful of
