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

5. Boston Terrier - Another breed right due to their size, the Boston Terrier will call for a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be terrific, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
