1. English Bulldog - In spite of appearances, the English Bulldog is an uplifting dog that is more than happy to spend their days sleeping on the couch. They will barely bark, and are great with children in spite of their stocky build which has them weighing upwards of 22kg!
2. Pug - Love them or hate them, the modest pug is a lively and faithful dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would include another pet or plenty of human interaction. The pug is satisfied to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment buddy.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua calls for minimal exercise, making it ideal for a small home, it is very crucial that they receive correct training to avoid the yappy character they are known for. Weighing as little as 1kg, they are effortlessly carried around which is handy for people who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is very good with other canines and children. While they can at first be somewhat difficult 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, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
