Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all excellent characteristics to look for when on the hunt for an appropriate apartment dog. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheerful dog that is more than happy to spend their days napping on the couch. They will barely bark, and are fantastic 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 spirited and faithful dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would include another canine or lots of human interaction. The pug is happy to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment pal.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua requires minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller sized home, it is very important that they receive appropriate training to avoid the yappy character 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 quite good with other pets and children. While they can initially be somewhat hard to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their tiny legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed perfect due to their size, the Boston Terrier will require a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be wonderful, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
Brazilian Terrier Information

Spirited and obedient but fearless, as watchdogs they will only bark to get your attention and then leave the rest up to you.
