Small dogs are in abundance in rescue centres because of the high abandonment rate for these pups.
Usually, what happens is an owner can no longer keep their dog due to a high number of complaints from neighbours amongst other things. Small dogs can be perfect dogs to keep in apartments as long as you put in the time and patience to control their barking.
They’re also pretty low maintenance owing to their size and can keep you just as happy as any other dog regardless of size.
Last but not the least, small dogs crave their owners’ attention and will do anything to be around them. This makes them perfect companion dogs for single people or small families.
