Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all really good characteristics to search for when on the hunt for a suitable apartment canine. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Regardless of appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheery dog that is more than happy to spend their days napping on the couch. They will rarely 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 humble pug is a playful and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would involve another pet dog or a lot of human interaction. The pug is satisfied to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment friend.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua calls for minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller home, it is very important that they receive correct training to avoid the yappy character they are known for. Weighing as little as 1kg, they are easily 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 originally be somewhat hard to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their very small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed great due to their size, the Boston Terrier will need a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be fantastic, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
