One of the first things you should consider when getting a new dog is what size of dog you’d like to add to your family. This could be based on the size of your home, how much outdoor space you have available, or simply personal preference.

There is no right or wrong answer, so listen to your heart and pick a size that you love! Following are nine breeds that you could consider based on the size that you are looking for.

Small Dogs

1. Beagle

Usually under 25 pounds, Beagles are one of the most popular breeds in the world, and for a good reason too. These cute dogs have floppy ears, relatively short hair, and can be found in a variety of colors. Even though they are so sweet (and short), these dogs are not very obedient. When you order him not to dig, he probably will.

2. Pug

Often between 12-20 pounds, Pugs usually have short hair and often feature a contrast of a light color coat with a darker-shaded face.[mnright] Many dog owners love Pugs for their playful nature and personality.

3. Jack Russell Terrier

These are beautiful dogs that are commonly in the 15 pound range. Many Jack Russell Terriers have a white coat with tan or brown spots, and they are known for being energetic and active.

If you are looking for a small, yet very high energy dog that is going to be able to have fun with your kids in the yard for hours at a time, the jack Russell is a perfect choice.

However, they are incredibly feisty and high energy, so if you are someone who doesn’t have the time to play with the dog and spend a lot of time with it, it might be better to consider a dog that doesn’t act like it runs on batteries.
