SMALL DOG BREEDS

If you live in an apartment, you may consider getting a dog of the small breed type. These small dog breeds are those of about 10, or less, inches tall (average). They can adapt better to a limited space, be easier to handle and require less space to life. So maybe a small dog breed could be a great option for you. Just be careful and spend some time searching for the most suitable breed for you in terms of personality and most of all, in case you have kids because some of these breeds are not particularly fond of children.

One thing to consider is that this kind of dogs eat a lot less than the medium or large breeds dogs, which mean you would need to pay special attention to their nutrition and make sure they will receive the correct amount of nutrients in smaller portions to insure the dog's proper development and health.
