Toy Dog Breeds have done very well for themselves, surviving chiefly by providing companionship.
Affectionate and loyal, their intelligence shines when channeled towards obedience training and competition. They relish showing off all the tricks they have mastered.
Also known as lapdogs, they are the perfect fit for tight quarters, though they can be yappy.
Due to their fragility, toy dogs and small children do not usually mix well.
Toy dogs include:
• Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
• Italian Greyhound
• Miniature Pinscher
• Shih Tzu
• Yorkshire Terrier
