Looking for small dogs! ....

Our goal and mission for this site is simply to provide a warm, friendly, informative, site about common every day small dogs for the common every day people who love, care and provide for them.

We're here because we love animals. We have spent many years caring for and loving our dogs (big ones and small ones!) and we'd love to share some of our family and experiences with you.

You've probably already visited a number of dog related sites by now and maybe you're head is spinning around just a little bit. I know that's how we felt when we decided to get our first small dog.

It's amazing how many different breeds of dogs are out there. Different personalities, grooming needs, energy levels, good with children, hypoallergenic, and the list goes on and on.

Our "Small Breed Dogs " page lists (with pictures) and summarizes many of the small breed dogs recognized by the major kennel clubs today. Although a good place to start your search please don't be fooled or mislead into thinking these dogs are your only option. There are literally hundreds of thousands and small dogs out there today without a home just waiting for someone like you to give them a warm, loving home.

They may not all be purebred dogs or have perfect colors and markings but they all do have purebred hearts and perfect love to give to someone who is willing to give them a chance. Before you make a decision, please check out our "Small dog rescue" page. In our pet shelters there are many small dogs for adoption out there today.

You may just come away with a different point of view, or maybe you have some thoughts, ideas or a story that can help someone else. We would love to hear from you and I'm sure other visitors would also.

So, that's what this site is all about, sprinkling a little "TLC" and personal life experiences around, some of ours and hopefully a little of yours too. People helping people, Who knows, maybe you or I, or both of us will make a new friend or two along the way.

Our dogs 

A number of years ago, when we decided to get a small dog, we spent several weeks researching and surfing the internet, trying to find the perfect dog to fit our lifestyle.

At the time we had small children and a gentle, lovable German Shepherd. We (my wife and I) wanted a dog that would be good with kids and get along well with other pets. We finally settled on the Pomeranian breed.


Best decision we could have made! That was quite a few years ago. My kids are grown and have lives of their own. Our dogs are our family now, we currently have 3 German Shepherds and 4 Pomeranians. They all get along with each other (most of the time) and we love and cherish every one of them.

The pics on this page, on the right and above, are a few of the puppies we've had from our Poms over the years. As you can see, they really are adorable little puppies.

While the pomeranian worked out to be the perfect small dog for us, only you can decide which dog is the right one for you.




Here's a little tip to get you started !

The decision you make now will be with you for the next 10 - 15 years or more. Go slowly, take your time and get it right the first time. Spending a little extra time now will pay big dividends down the road a bit.

Owning a new dog (oops! did I say "Owning" ?) Let's start over ... Adding a new family member into your home can be a wonderful, rewarding and sometimes challenging undertaking.

Dogs are living, breathing, intelligent, loving, animals. We may own our home, our furniture, our toys, but not our dogs, they are members of our family.
