With Small Breed Puppies You Can Have Big Fun With Little Ones!

March 3, 2018

Everyone has their preference of whether they’re on “Team Small Dogs” or “Team Big Dogs!”

Most people either love ‘em or leave ‘em. There are small breed puppies for sale that are cute, compact, and awesome pets chock full of personality. They weigh anywhere between 4 to 40 pounds and are typically easier to handle for children. They can live happily in any location. They are especially great for seniors, apartment dwellers, and city residents who don’t have big yards or spaces. They’re also excellent for those who don’t lead incredibly active lifestyles. Experts suggest that first time dog owners adopt or purchase small breed puppies. We’ve compiled a list of five popular small breed puppies for sale. Want to see if there’s any small breed pups for sale you want to take home, click here for our available puppies page!

Shih Tzu

These little joys don’t shed, but they do require daily grooming. The Shih Tzu, also known as the “lion dog,” makes for a great family dog. They are very friendly and get along well with all creatures (even children)! small breed puppies  


This small but ferocious dog is a faithful companion and good watchdog. Though the Pekingese has an guardian nature, they’re surprisingly still suitable for families with other pets and kids and are one of the most sought after small breed puppies for sale.

Boston Terrier

Boston Terriers are great family dogs, bonding well with kids and displaying friendly and cheerful dispositions more often than not. They don’t require a ton of grooming, but rather an occasional brush to get rid of excess hair. We must warn you though, they love to munch on household items, so keep lots of chew toys handy!


Oh, the Pug…what’s not to love? Their small, wrinkly faces, short legs, and inquisitive personalities makes the Pug a comedic and friendly companion. The always pleasant Pug is easy to and willing to please. These small breed puppies snore, so you may want to consider buying some ear plugs if you decide to bring this dog into your bedroom or home for that matter!

Miniature Schnauzers

Known for being much more agreeable than the stereotypical terrier, the handsome bearded Mini Schnauzer is playful, spunky, and oh so curious. In fact, don’t put it pass them to bark at every passerby, kitty cat, or dog it sees through your window, where they’d sit for hours, by the way. Miniature Schnauzers enjoy the company of little children and make for excellent family pets.
