Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua requires minimal exercise, making it perfect for a small home, it is very crucial that they receive proper training to avoid the yappy personality they are known for. Weighing as little as 1kg, they are easily carried around which is handy for individuals who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is very great with other pets and children. While they can at first be somewhat challenging to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed great due to their size, the Boston Terrier will call for a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be fantastic, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
