When choosing a dog breed, it is worth considering not only its external characteristics. Think about whether you can provide her with all the necessary conditions. For example, not every dog is suitable for keeping in a small apartment.
First of all, pay attention to miniature dogs. Breeds such as the Toy Terrier, Yorkshire Terrier and Chihuahua are great for keeping even in a small apartment. The main thing for these crumbs is that their owner is next to them, and then they will be happy. However, do not forget that even with a small dog that is accustomed to doing its business in a litter box, you need to walk outside to allow it to frolic and socialize with other dogs, and the Yorkshire Terrier needs careful grooming. Small dogs are often excitable, so be prepared for your dog to burst into barking at the slightest rustle.
A dog is not only a loyal friend, but also a coat during moulting. Therefore, many people who decide to have a dog in an apartment prefer short-haired breeds. The miniature pinscher, pug, dachshund, French bulldog are very convenient for keeping the house. These are small dogs that will not take up much space, but at the same time they will give you a lot of joy.
If you are an active person who loves long walks, you should pay attention to those breeds whose representatives are able to support you in your hobby. This is a mittel schnauzer, husky, scotch terrier, fox terrier, beagle. These dogs will be happy to accompany you during a bike ride, will rush alongside you while you are rollerblading, and will never refuse to wander through the forest with you. Those who are able to provide the dog with the proper physical activity can easily take a puppy of one of these breeds into the apartment.
Many people, taking a dog into the house, give preference to good-natured dogs who are not demanding, do not make a lot of noise, get along well with all pets and love children. These breeds include the Labrador Retriever, St. Bernard, Newfoundland, Irish Setter. If you are not confused by the size of the dog, feel free to get one of these giant kind-hearted people with devoted eyes. For those whose apartment size does not allow keeping a dog whose weight is close to a centner, you can take a cocker spaniel or a poodle, which also have a light and playful character.
When choosing a puppy, remember that each dog, despite its general breed qualities, has its own unique character, and even a representative of the calmest and phlegmatic breed can turn out to be an eccentric mischievous person. Be prepared to love your new family member for who they are, and then buying a dog will only bring you joy.
