The 10 most popular small dog breeds in the UK have been revealed, with Dachshunds, Pugs and Miniature Schnauzers among the top canine companions for limited space.
Whether you’re a first-time pet parent or live in an urban apartment, small dog breeds are great to consider. As well as having huge personalities, they are easier to move around and cheaper to care for than their colossal colleagues thanks to their overall size and lesser weight.
At the top of the list is the French Bulldog, which has surged in popularity with a whopping 39,266 Kennel Club registrations last year. In second place came the adorable Mini Smooth Haired Dachshund — another miniature pup with 10,369 reported registrations. Elsewhere, other popular breeds include Border Terriers, Pomeranians and West Highland White Terriers, too.
Want to adopt a small dog breed? These gorgeous miniature pups featured on the Kennel Club‘s most popular dog breed list for 2020, making them loved by many owners. Before adopting a dog of your own, it’s important you are ready for the responsibility that comes with owning one.
“Before getting a puppy or a dog, make sure you will be able to care for them and give them a happy, healthy life,” the animal welfare charity says. “It’s important to consider not only how a dog would impact your own life, but also whether your lifestyle is suitable for owning a dog. No matter how much you may want a dog, it won’t be fair on them if you’re unable to fully commit and cater to their needs.”
