Toy Dogs: Nine Popular Varieties as Pets

Shih Tzu

There is a good reason why Shih Tzus are so common. You can count on hearing a lot of wheezing and snorting from that squished up face.

Toy Poodle

Toy Poodles are confident, smart, and affectionate, like other Poodles. They need little exercise but lots of socialising, so be ready for one-on-one time.

Silky Terrier

Silky Terriers may appear like Yorkies, but they're a unique breed with high affection and intellect. While not lap dogs, they love to mingle and play.


Papillons are alert, friendly, and vivacious. Also available with butterfly ears. Personal preference, not a deficiency, causes dropped ears.


Pekingese have a unique and dignified personality since their days as royal favourites. The breed is sociable and social, if intolerant of young children.


Chihuahuas are small but trainable. Chis get connected to their folks and don't enjoy being alone, but their fun makes up for it.


Affenpinschers are hairy dogs with enormous personalities. They're not kid-friendly, but they're laid-back, perform well in apartments, and enjoy to play.


Its wrinkles, snorts, curly tail, and friendly demeanour are enticing. Pugs are a fantastic toy breed for homes with kids and other pets despite being untrainable.


The Maltese is a toy dog with a long, silky hair that adores grooming. Maltese are smart lap dogs who appreciate a rest as much as a walk.
