Basenjis are known for being the barkless dog and that’s something your neighbors will thank you for when they see you in the hallways.
As long as they get regular exercise, Basenjis will do fine in a smaller space. Left home alone with nothing to do, this breed will find things to get into. If you’re out of the house for long periods each day, this might not be the right fit for you.
Chow Chows are a popular choice of dog breed, we mean, who could possibly resist getting their hands on one of these puffy fluffballs? But when it comes to choosing a new companion, potential owners might want to look past all that pillowy fur.
The difficulty with Chow Chows is that these teddy bear-like dogs don't always understand how big they can become. At other times, Chow Chows can become a little too overprotective or overly attached to their owners and can have trouble with newcomers and other dogs.
American Hairless Terrier
The American Hairless Terrier is a bright, curious, and playful dog that's also hairless! He is a fine choice for allergy sufferers who want a dog with a true terrier disposition. The broad, wedge-shaped head is a hallmark of this breed with erect, V-shaped ears that frame the round, expressive eyes.
The American Hairless Terrier has only moderate exercise needs. Of course, they have to go outside several times a day, but brief sessions in a fenced-in park will also be fine. They enjoy some action but are also quite content to curl up and cuddle next to their owner.
Coton de Tulear
For the bright and beloved Coton de Tulear, the perfect day consists just of doing nothing but being close to their humans.
Whether they are lying at your feet while you work, following you from room to room—not even the bathroom is off-limits—or going for a ride in the car, Cotons love being close to their families like Velcro.
One of the best things about mixed-breeds is their adorable names. Introducing: The Schnoodle. Schnoodles are a cross between Poodles and Miniature Schnauzers, and they are unbelievably sweet. This breed takes on a loyal, gentle nature from their Poodle side while adopting the bold character of the Schnauzer.
Schnoodles are also known for their soft, silky coat that’s less prone to excess shedding than some breeds. They are also said to be terrific guard dogs, thanks to their attentive inherited nature. The Schnoodle is a very smart dog that can learn things very quickly.
