If you’re after a pup that fits right in a purse, then take a look at the Yorkshire terrier. For the hefty price tag of fifteen hundred dollars, you can get a lap dog that is not only easy to transport but is also relatively friendly to everyone, especially those that it considers in its family.
While these dogs are in the mid-range of trainable qualities, they make for good first dogs due to their small size, playfulness, and lack of red flags when it comes to qualities. They’re also quite healthy, don’t drool much, and shed less than most other dogs.
Thanks to the popularity of these dogs, they will cost you more than fifteen hundred dollars. These dogs have been known as aggressive and dangerous, but they've been going through brand-rebuilding in recent years, with lots of people finding they are great guard dogs but good with kids at the same time.
They're intelligent, easy to train, and have sweet dispositions, yet they tend to be rambunctious and have lots of energy. They like to bark and howl and can sometimes wander off. Due to this, they aren't the kind of dog for a first-time owner. If you have the experience, however, a rottweiler might just be the perfect addition to your pack.
Chow Chow: $1,500
You might have had a few smart doggies in your life to this point, but it's highly unlikely that a Chow Chow was one of them. They're the dim bulbs of the canine world, but even without smarts, these dogs can be plenty charming. If you're interested in adding one to your family, you'll have to fork over fifteen hundred dollars.
Another issue for these dogs is their temperament – they don't love kids or other dogs. However, they're good on their own and aren't too rambunctious. However, they do tend to have a biting and nipping habit. They might look nice, but they can be nasty!
Staffordshire Bull Terrier: $1,500
Once bred to fight other canines, the antagonistic instincts of the Staffordshire bull terrier have been bred out to create a friendly dog. However, they still don't get along with other dogs too well, so be warned. These pups will cost fifteen hundred out of your wallet, but these sweet dogs are sure to be loyal.
They can be brave when they need to be, but they love to be loved. They enjoy being near their friends. They're also pretty easy to groom, even if they do shed and drool a little bit. They might not be the easiest to train, however, so be wary.
Nobody could possibly deny that Samoyeds are beautiful dogs, but they come with a high price tag. That's mostly because of the rarity of the breed, but they're also dogs that have great personalities – they're friendly with everything. However, these dogs don't top the list of most intelligent dogs and aren't the easiest to train, either.
They also tend to shed pretty much year-round. If you're in a cold-weather area, this is one dog you might want to try out, but certainly not one if you're in a hot-weather area.
