Top 5 Apartment-Friendly Canine Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all great qualities to look for when on the hunt for an ideal apartment canine. Below is a list of the top apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Regardless of appearances, the English Bulldog is a happy dog that is more than happy to spend their days snoozing on the couch. They will barely bark, and are terrific 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 pet or plenty of human interaction. The pug is content to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment pal.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua calls for minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller sized 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 individuals who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is quite good with other canines and children. While they can at first be somewhat tough to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their very small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed right due to their size, the Boston Terrier will require a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be terrific, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.

TFTs are TNT in a small bundle. Feisty and fun-loving, they are hunting terriers at heart and will spend hours investigating the yard, your cabinets and places you never knew existed. They love to play with people and toys, and make excellent companions for careful older children; however, they do not tolerate inconsiderate handling. They can entertain for hours and are also content to snuggle on a warm lap during recess. This is a one-family, even one-person, breed that doesn't warm to strangers initially. The TFT's intelligence, energy and penchant for showing off make it a quick study and impressive trick dog.
