You might think you need to have a huge house with a big fenced-in outdoor space to get a dog.
But the truth is, if you’re living in an apartment or a smaller house, there are plenty of breeds that will adapt to your space and steal your heart.
Here are five of the best dogs for apartments and small homes.
Standing at only 23 cm tall and weighing around 3 kilos, these tiny terriers won’t take up much of your coveted space.
Havanese are energetic yet don’t need hours of exercise. A daily walk should do the trick.
This breed may have royal roots but they don’t need to live in palatial splendour to thrive. Cavaliers love being close to their owners, so the smaller the space the better as far as they’re concerned.
Basenjis are slightly larger than others on this list, ranging in weight from 9 to 12 kilos. Regardless, they will find themselves right at home in an apartment.
This breed may be known for their speed, but they like to live life at a much slower pace – which makes them perfect for apartment living.
Plenty of pups are content in small spaces as long as they get daily walks and lots of cuddles with their best friend (that’s you!).
Plus, they’ll make your apartment, flat or home cozier than any rug or blanket ever could.
