Note: All toy-sized breed of dogs are generally difficult to housebreak and could be harmed easily with kids.
- Manchester Terrier (Toy-size)
These dogs are small and short-haired, but should not be trusted with small/non-canine animals. They are loyal and somewhat difficult to housebreak, but coat-care is very easy.
- Bichon Frise
The Bichon Frise's coat does not shed, and is very easy to care for. They are small dogs and get along well with other animals. As for house-breaking, I'm uncertain.
This dog is small and generally does not get a long with other animals unless they are a chihuahua as well. These dogs are loyal and loving to the point of jealousy. They have short hair and coat-care is very easy. I've been told that they are easy to house-break.
- Italian Greyhound
Now don't be fooled because it says greyhound, these dogs are small and look the same as a greyhound. They are somewhat easy to housebreak and very loving, but extremely fragile. They also have poor bladder control and pee a lot. They are sensitive to harsh correction and not reccommended for boisterious or unruly children. Their coat-care is minimal as well.
The beagle is an over-all good companion and short-haired. They are small, and get a long well with other animals. Some are hard to housebreak, while others are easy, but they do act naughty at times. They remain independant and loving, their coat-care is also easy. They do well with children.
The rat terrier is very short-haired and small as well. They are extremely loving and coat-care couldn't be any easier. They get a long well with pets and kids, but may be somewhat hard to housebreak. They may be one of the rarer breeds to find.
I don't have much insight, except for what others have told me and general knowledge. As it mentions, they are hairless, so you never have to worry about grooming/shedding. They are also small dogs and get along well with the family. They might be difficult to housebreak, but get a long well with kids/pets.
This dog is another small dog, but the biggest out of the group I mentioned. The biggest they get is 15.5 inches, and are short-haired. Their coat care is minimal and they do get a long extremely well with kids/pets. Don't be fooled though, they are still independant and should not be left alone to wander outside or in a fenced area. They are escape artists and get out of places, VERY easily. They aren't reliable off-leash.
I hope I helped and that you find the dog just right for you. Now remember, NEVER buy a dog just because of their looks. All dogs have different needs and tempermants, so search up your dog info before buying one. Good luck!=3 [ Yurari's advice column | Ask Yurari A Question ]

PrEtTyKiTtY0428 answered Tuesday March 29 2005, 2:46 am: Hey hun!!!! I have 4 dogs right now, and I hate em! I have 2 Chihuahua's, a Bichon Frise (it's just like a poodle), and a Cocker Spaniel that's mixed with American Eskimo and a whole bunch of other things. My 2 Chihuahua's are really small, and their very playful! They don't shed at all. Their good dogs to have. My Bichon Frise also doesn't shed, but my parents have to take him to get groomed alot. It's really cute when he gets groomed, cuz they always put a bandana on him for us, or we could get bows in his ears if we wanted but that would look weird since he's a boy lol. We don't have to worry about his hair though at all. If you were to get a dog, I would say get a Chihuahua or a Bichon. Their playful dogs, and you would love one of em if you got it! My dogs names are Boots, Rocky, Foofoo, and kibbles. Just thought I would let you know! You could name your dog after one of mine if you wanted to! Well I hope I helped you out hun! If not, I'm sorry! You'd be very happy with one of the dogs I mentioned though! Good luck! :) [ PrEtTyKiTtY0428's advice column | Ask PrEtTyKiTtY0428 A Question ]

Brunettesweetheart2468 answered Sunday March 27 2005, 3:32 pm: Well, I have 2 shih tzus and they are WONDERFUL dogs. They don't shed, and are pretty quiet for the most part. But if you want to grow the hair out to long, they get snarles in the coat. So get them a hair cut once in a while. Shih tzus are very easy, just give them food, water, toys, running space, a bed, and love. Good luck!! Here are some cute names.....
China (they are chinease dogs)
Sorry I gave you so much info. I just can't stop about how awesome and fun shih tzus are!!

Sherry answered Sunday March 27 2005, 6:36 am: A maltese, they are the cutest adorable things ever. Google "maltese puppy" or "maltese" and prepare to "awwww" lol. Maltese's dont even grow big. Or you can get a tea-cup chiwawa(spell?) those never ever get big...they look like puppys until they die [ Sherry's advice column | Ask Sherry A Question ]
honeybunch answered Sunday March 27 2005, 5:54 am: a yorki!!! they are like perfect! but if you can't afford one (they are usually around $700) then a miniature snouzer (sp?) pronounced sn-ow-zer umm... a shuzitzuh (sp?) pronounced shoo-zit-zoo (spelling?) is a good dog to.
hope i helped!
