Don’t Miss: Top 10 Small Quiet Dog Breeds

    I think shih tzu’s are the best apartment dogs because they’re not all that energetic and the never shed. Ever. Though you have to pamper them every now and then and they tend to be “adorably” stubborn but other than that, they’re great apartment dogs.

    • Jill M Beckett

      chi-weenies are quite wonderful, too. They do shed…but that doesn’t stop the love bring

    Are these even dogs? With the exception of the Great Dane they all look like something you would find in Paris Hilton’s handbag. Pass!

    What, no Greyhounds? If you like big dogs and are in an apartment why go to a breeder for a Great Dane when there are tons of retired racing Greyhounds that need homes (for the record, it’s pretty easy to find retired Greys as young as 1 or 2 years old). They’re incredibly low energy, have no major health issues, and are some of the most cuddly and affectionate dogs in the world. They almost never bark, are almost always (mostly) housebroken by the time you adopt them, and sleep for about 18 hours a day (curled up into nice space saving compact balls). I have two Greys in an 1100 sq ft apartment and we probably have space for 2 or 3 more. Any list of best apartment dog breeds is incomplete without Greys!!!

    I had a French Bulldog in a small apartment. Never had any real problems. To be honest, I don’t think I can do with any other breed ever again..
