21 Most Affectionate Dog Breeds


Some people like huge dogs, some like them small, some like energetic, some lazy. When it comes to family dogs, you know what matters the most, though. That’s right, cuddling time. And as far as cuddling on the couch is concerned, there are no breeds that do it better than these:

1. Chihuahua

These saucy little tamales draw their connection to the Mesoamerican dish not only because of their place of origin but also because of their temper. They are the world’s smallest dogs but don’t let their size fool you – they quite possibly have the world’s biggest personality tucked into those tiny bodies of theirs. You could almost say that their persona is larger than life itself. They make ideal pets for men and women alike.

There’s nothing that a Chihuahua loves more than being close to their people, showing them just how much they love them and giving them rather busy maintaining schedules. It’s not uncommon for a Chihuahua to follow you around everywhere you go, making them ideal companions to carry along in tote bags when you have to run errands or go shopping. Don’t be surprised if your Chihuahua forms a close bond with a single person – they are overwhelmingly affectionate, but cautious at the same time.
