A pug!!! Do get a pug, they're so sweet and playful. I had a pug a couple years back and he was the cutest thing ever! They're very patient and always friendly. They're quite hardy but don't do well in really hot weather. My pugsy died of kidney stones though =( miss him badly..
I would say the chinse chawwa
My dog was a pekingese and chihuahua cross and she was a bit small and really hardy! Despite all the storms, hardships in the house, it still survived and its friendly when you know it more......
Westiesss :) I have one.
Their hypoallergenic (don't shed) small, and very family friendly.
They are sorta expensive... Mine was 800$CDN
I have an aaaaamazing Pomeranian, BUT, he is big for a pom. He is 19 pounds and I really think this makes all the difference. If you can get a dog that is big for its breed, so it is still small enough to sit in your laugh but big enough to fend for itself, not yip, etc, you will be really happy. I can rough house with him, go swimming, etc but still cuddle up with him at night. It is truly the best of both worlds! :)
A pug my grandmother has one even though they can be high maintenance they are very friendly and playful and loyal....
