1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheery 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 humble pug is a spirited and faithful dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would include another dog or a lot of human interaction. The pug is happy to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment buddy.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua needs minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller sized home, it is very crucial that they receive proper training to avoid the yappy character they are known for. Weighing as little as 1kg, they are effortlessly 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 originally be somewhat hard to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their tiny legs!
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 wonderful, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
The Landseer Newfoundland dog is known for its sweet disposition, gentleness, and serenity. They enjoy swimming and tend to drool, though not as much as some other giant breeds.
