  3. Aren't Small Dogs just the best? 

    If you are thinking about which dog to get, the decision can be overwhelming because there are just so many of these little guys to choose from.

    Do you want fluffy and cute, or sleek and smart

    Luckily there is that special  small breed dog just waiting to be loved by you.



    Many of the dogs listed on this page can be registered through the American Kennel Club.  But some are so rare in the U.S. that, although they are purebred, they have not as of yet been entered into this registry.  Around the world, however, they may be much more common.

    We continue to add to this small dog breed list as we research new breeds, so check back often -- your perfect breed might just be here waiting for you.
