We all love our household companions and there is nothing like their smiling face to greet us when we get home. When it comes to a dog, there is nothing like a smart dog that is well-behaved and trained, but sometimes a goofy and not so smart dog can really be the cure for anything life hands you. While they might be a tad slower than other dogs out there, these pooches make up for their intelligence in other ways. If you have encountered a dumb dog, then you may understand what it is like to spend time with it. Listed below are 15 of the dumbest dog breeds ever and while they are not the best learners, they are some of the best companions a human can offer.

1. Pekingese

This dog is notorious for being a “lap” dog and tends to have a very stubborn personality. With that said this breed has issues taking orders and commands and cannot learn as well as other dogs. The Pekingese was the first ever lap dog to become widespread across the world and they ae highly known to have a very high-pitched, yapping bark, regardless if there is even anything to bark at. This dog breed can be pretty frustrating at times depending on the breed and if you are searching for a dog that is more playful and energetic, you may want to swap to something a bit more rambunctious.

11 Best Small Dogs for Families https://weluvpuppies.com/11-best-small-dogs-for-families/ Thu, 20 Aug 2015 20:12:42 +0000 https://weluvpuppies.com/?p=276 Maltese

Choosing a dog that will become a part of your family should be a decision that is approached with wisdom and research, especially if children are present. It’s a much better idea to decide what you really want out of a companion dog for the family before you purchase a puppy and this is just as important when you are choosing a small breed as well as a large one.

Every year, thousands of small dogs wind up in shelters or rescue, many of them because they simply are inappropriate for the household situation. And remember, even though a dog may be very small, it can still be snappish and aggressive.

Fortunately, there are plenty of breeds that will fit into a household with children without any problem and will add that special devotion and love that dogs provide. Most of these dogs also get along with other family pets without any problem.

# 1–Maltese

This toy breed has actually been around since the time of the Ancient Romans and has been used nearly exclusively as a companion dog. The silky white coat will become quite long, so it will need to be brushed regularly. A calm and affectionate little dog weighing generally from 5 to 8 pounds, your Maltese will want to be around the family as much as possible. They are smart as well as loving and like to learn new tricks. They are trustworthy around children of all ages and are actually a bit sturdier than you might imagine from their size. A Maltese will definitely be prone to separation anxiety if left alone for long periods.
