Dog Names Meaning Little One

With urban sprawl everywhere it is becoming very hard to reside in a home on land or even a suburban house with a fenced in yard. Chances are good that if you live and work in a thriving city then you will be living in an apartment, condo, or townhome. Such residences have no real yards so keeping a large canine as a companion is truly out of the question. However, don’t despair because there are many small dogs who thrive in close quarters, require very little exercise, and would be the perfect fit for a tiny home.

When living in a metropolis, you will want to share your life with a dog small enough to be portable. You will need to carry him down stairs or in elevators. He should be lightweight and small enough to pick up with ease. Some dogs must also be kept in pet carriers when transporting them through lobbies and other busy locations so be sure that your canine companion will fit in a tiny, lightweight carrier that is easy to carry through a crowded location.

Many people who have owned a big dog wonder if a tiny canine will even make a good pet. Well, don’t fret because historically small dogs have been bred for one purpose and that is to be a perfect companion to a human. They live to serve their human master and have no genetic instincts to herd or runoff. The three smallest dog breeds are the Chihuahua, the Yorkshire Terrier, and the Pomeranian. However, there are many breeds that are diminutive to choose from and you can also opt for a tiny mixed breed.

Small dogs are not always perfect. Sometimes they are notoriously hard to housebreak so you have to be very consistent. Other small dogs might be barkers which can be difficult in an apartment setting. However, both bad behaviors can be broken or controlled with persistence and training. If you have found the perfect small dog to share your life with then it is time to think about a name. You can opt to name your pooch after a famous canine or maybe pick a handle that proclaims his tiny size.
