5 Pint Sized Pooches Are Here

May 2, 2018

Purse pups, lapdogs, and arm clutches are just a few monikers for small dog breeds.  

 

Here at Petland, our stores are plentiful of these precious pups. Below are 5 of the most adorable small dog breeds you can purchase and find at our location. 

Papillion 

Full of personality, Papillons are popular small dog breeds. Known for their butterfly style ears, they pack a punch of 4 to 9 pounds. They are descendants from toy spaniels and frequently portrayed in paintings by the Old Masters, dating back to the 16th century. They’re very active and champion competitors in agility and obedience.  

Puggle 

The Puggle originated in the United States in the 1980’s. They are small dog breeds mixed of a Pug and Beagle. They can weigh between 10 and 30 pounds. They’re friendly, playful, and very energetic. They love to eat, so to keep them in shape exercise them daily. Doing this, they’ll live a healthy and long lifespan of 10 to 15 years. 

Yorkshire Terrier 

They are the definition of small dog breeds! A full-grown Yorkie weighs between 4 and 7 pounds. They are highly energetic, brave, and loyal. Despite their pint sizes, they make excellent guard dogs, because they’re little yaps will alert you to…well everything! 

Maltese 

The Maltese is one of the tiniest of small dog breeds that we have in our store ranging from 6 -9 pounds. The Maltese’s white mane is one of their main attractions! They have a lifespan of 15 years; however, some have lived for 18. They are notoriously fearless and affectionate! 

Pomeranian 

There’s no surprise that we’d highlight these small dog breeds. This puffy pooch has an average weight of 7 – 10 pounds. As you might have guessed, they have larger than life personalities! They’re the boss, but they’re also loving companions!
