3. Basset Hound - They are really lazy pet dogs that are soft and tender towards their loved ones. Although they require little bit of exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus usually tend to not be especially keen on going outdoors. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight commonly maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are constrained to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are fairly non-active. One walk a day is all you need to guarantee these dogs get a good workout.
