2. Pug - Love them or hate them, the humble pug is a playful and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would involve another pet dog or a lot of human interaction. The pug is content to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment buddy.

4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is very great with other dogs and children. While they can originally be somewhat challenging to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed right due to their size, the Boston Terrier will need a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be wonderful, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
American Bulldog Information
The essential characteristics of the American Bulldog are those which enable it to work as a hog and cattle catching dog, and a protector of personal property. These tasks require a powerful, agile, confident dog with a large head and powerful jaws. The American Bulldog is a gentle, loving family companion who is fearless enough to face an angry bull or a human intruder. Note: It is common for young American Bulldogs to be somewhat standoffish with strangers, and judges should not penalize this. By the time the dog is around 18 months of age, however, the breed’s normal confidence asserts itself.
