But watch out! We snore.

Bred for companionship to Chinese nobility, these love bugs will follow you room to room.

Bichon Frise

Peppy, playful, and fluffy enough to mimic your pillow. Fun fact: these cuties used to be circus performers in the 19th century.

Dachshund

Nicknamed the "wiener dog," this smallest of the hounds is short on leg but long on personality. Dachshunds often bond closely with a single person and may even become jealous of their owner's attention to others.

Greyhound

Fun fact: Boxers make a unique sound, called a "woo-woo," when they want something or are excited. These dogs will woo you with their fun and loyal personalities.

Mastiff

At 120-230 pounds, these large dogs might not exactly be able to fit on your lap - but they will curl up beside you and lean on you. Just beware - these dogs can clear out rooms when they let one go.

Boston Terrier

Loves to be loved - this breed is intelligent and a leader. This dog has "Small Dog Syndrome" where the dog believes he is pack leader to humans if not given leadership. These dogs are especially good with the elderly and strangers.

Newfoundland

Remember Peter Pan anyone? Nana, the fictional Newfoundland employed as a nanny? These dogs are great family dogs, protective and great with children. They are also famously known to slobber all over you.
