In time I will be looking into getting a smaller breed dog. I am just wondering if there are smaller breeds that are easier to housetrain .I had a Yorkie years ago that was impossible but adorable but I cant live with that for over ten years as I did with her. I have heard that the Shihzu (cant spell it) is a good dog as far as that go's and with temperament as well. And very cute also Also the Papillon is said to be a good dog as well from what I have heard anyway. Also wondering about the mixes like the cockapoo and the puga poo etc etc. I am aware that some people on here dont like the mixes but I am not exactly sure as to why. Right now I am just trying to study the breeds as i am so afraid of making the wrong choice like before. I know that no dog is perfect either and dont expect that. I am not into giving up my pets and the next one will be it for me. I just want to make the right choice this time around.
