There are so many reasons to love small dogs. They’re excellent at cuddling, and can fit snugly in your lap or the crook of your knees. They shed less. They’re cheaper, as they require less food and supplies. And they’re easier to transport to the vet or wherever you’d like to take them – plus, they typically won’t try to fight you when you scoop them up to put them in a travel bag!
In short, undersized pups are the perfect addition to a family. Small dog breeds are generally defined as weighing less than 22 pounds and standing shorter than 16 inches.
