dog breed?

what are some cute, smart, and good behaved dog breeds???

Answer #1

What you have to do, is go to the AKC site and look thru the dogs…find the size, the activity level, shedder or non-shedder, etc etc…to find the breed that fits into YOUR lifestyle, house and yard size, and activity level.

The ONLY well behaved dogs are dogs who have been worked with on a fair and consistant basis…no dog comes “knowing the rules”…


Answer #2

SHIH TZUS… I have 2 and they are my life!

Answer #3

Beagles and Labradors are the best. I personally favor Damations to be the most well-behaved.

Answer #4

Every dog has it’s own personality, it’s hard to guess what a dog will be like.

I have 2 pitbulls, one is as nice as can be thinks she’s a big baby, the other, doesn’t like people at all.

Answer #5

All of them, It really depends on what size, long hair, smooth coat, sheding, non-shedding. but the Bichon Frise does fit all of the categories you have listed, over all good dog.

Answer #6

it depends. I have a basset. she is sooo cute. but very hard to train. it depends on what type of dog you like and also on how you raise your dogs. We also have a maltese type thingy, but he is very shy and scared.

then we have german shephard that is a big fluffly baby and has bitten both my previous was impressed

also have a sasuage dog. they are a lot easier to train.

Here is a good summary of the personality of certain smaller dog breeds:


Pomeranians developed from a much larger dog breed and seem to have retained the mellow character. They are good with children if they have been raised with them from puppyhood. They are playful and active. They tend to bark and require daily grooming.


Chihuahuas are an interesting small breed. I have raised several herds - and that is a good word for a group of chihuahuas - and their temperment is a bit different from other small dogs. They can be very aggressive towards other dog breeds. I adopted one chihuahua who kept attacking a German Shepherd who finally bit her. After she got out of the hospital she went after him again. I ended up with her because she wasn’t going to quit attacking bigger dogs. Some chihuahuas will growl and nip at small children. Good points - chihuahuas are very loyal and affectionate. They don’t require as much exercise as other small breeds so they make ideal pets for apartment dwellers or older people. They are good with cats.

Boston Terrier:

Good with children and other animals, the Boston terrier is a good small dog for families. They are suitable for any lifestyle. They can be aggressive chewers. Their short coat is easy to keep clean.

Jack Russell Terrier:

This dog breed is only for the most active owners. They love to chase balls, can hop onto a table with ease and can be aggressive if not trained properly. Very intelligent and lively, they require a lot of attention and discipline.


This small dog breed can be very protective of its owner. It is not suitable for families with children because they are very fragile. (lol. don’t agree with this ours fit in fine :-))

Shitzu or Shih tzu:

Good natured and non-aggressive, these friendly little dogs make great family pets. They require daily brushing but their hair is non-shedding. Good with other animals.

Bichon Frise:

These little dogs make good family pets. They are good with children as well as other animals. Very intelligent, easy to train and lively. Their coat doesn’t shred.


Not a hound but a terrier bred to go after vermin, the breed is lively and affectionate. Good with family members but will become aggressive to children outside the family. They make good watchdogs and will bark frequently to alert their owners.


Very fierce and loyal, these little dogs are not good around children or other animals. These are good dogs for the elderly. Their coats require a good deal of grooming.

Skye Terrier:

Great with children, okay with other dogs but not tolerant of cats. This unique breed makes a fine pet. Distrustful of strangers.
