Most of us love dogs. They are cute and great and make our lives much better. However, even the biggest of dog lovers can find themselves challenged for domestic space which can make owning certain dogs neigh on impossible.

However, many smaller dogs are more than capable of adapting to smaller environments so long as the owner is taking them outside for regular toilet breaks and exercise.

Here are 35 dog breeds that are perfect for would-be dog owners living in small spaces.

1. Löwchens

Löwchens are affectionately known as “little lions” and have been bred since the Renaissance, as evidenced by their appearances on many prominent Renaissance paintings. The dog was particularly popular with nobleman but are now incredibly rare having become all-but-extinct by the 19th century, causing their price tag to skyrocket.

Today, it isn’t unheard of to hear of people pay upwards of $10,000 for these amazing dogs!

This cute little thing was bred as a lap dog but was nearly wiped out twice. First in the 1920s with the rise of Communism due to the toy dog’s traditional link to the aristocracy and again in the 1990s.

That time it was because of the influx of foreign breeds following the fall of the Iron Curtain.

6. Dachshund

Often referred to as the most feline of dog breeds, these fiercely independent dogs are playful and chaotic. Small and agile, they were bred for mountain terrain in order to hunt and flush game.

The Jack Russell terrier is a beloved breed, known for its larger-than-life personality and cheeky playfulness. However, as one of the most energetic breeds, they can easily turn violent if untrained.
