5. Boston Terrier - Another breed perfect due to their size, the Boston Terrier will call for a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be fantastic, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
English Setter Information
Bred to cover a lot of area when hunting, the English setter is a lively dog that loves to hunt and run. This is especially true of dogs from field lines. If not given sufficient exercise, they can be overly lively inside. With daily exertion, however, they are calm and tractable house dogs. Those from conformation lines are particularly laid-back and gentle and excel with children and less active adults. This is an amiable, easygoing breed that gets along well with children, strangers and other dogs.
