About This Quiz

No disrespect to big dogs, but small dogs rule! Not only do they provide most of the same things big dogs do, but they can also literally be carried around everywhere. They can fit into our bags, on plane seats, and just about anywhere we want to bring them. 

These babies, despite their size, are just as fierce as their bigger companions, with slightly cuter barks. Because of their size, they eat less food, don't poop as much, and look way more adorable in clothes. But the questions remains, which one is right for you? Which one should you think about getting? Let's find out. 

Should you get a Pembroke Welsh Corgi? They're really happy dogs who are great for families. What about a French Bulldog? French bulldogs are low energy dogs, but they notice everything. Maybe the Scottish Terrier is best for you. They are very smart and emotional dogs, who are great for single owners. Or should you get a Daschund? These pets, also called the 'sausage or wiener dog,' are extremely loyal and have energy for days!

So if you're thinking about going smaller, dog-wise, you need to find out which breed best goes with your lifestyle. Our quiz will tell you just that, so let's find out!
