Shih Tzu

Chow Chow

It is like a bigger version of the Pom. It is pretty fluffy so you won’t have a hard time identifying what breed it is. Like the above breed, this would need pretty frequent visits to the dog groomer. Its hair would need to get cut rather quickly or else it would grow fast.


It is one of the smallest dog breeds in the world. However, it is pretty nasty to strangers so you better get on its good side rather quickly. They won’t mind attacking dogs that are much larger than them. This breed is also pretty fast despite its size so you may have a hard time chasing it around.

Like the Chihuahua, it is pretty brave as it won’t hesitate to fight with bigger dogs. It will also roll over when they meet their master.

Siberian Husky

They look pretty similar to the ones that are being used to pull sleds at cold areas. They don’t deserve to be treated like that though. They are perfect home companions. They are pretty large compared to other dogs but they are still very friendly. Their eyes are pretty sharp when it becomes dark which is why they are used to find things that are lost. That should not happen all the time though as they are very friendly towards their master.


A lot of people own beagles due to how nice they are. They have long fluffy ears and have black spots on their skin. This dog breed can be paired with any other breed and it will make for a good combination. They are not too fast so better get used to that when you take them out for a walk. It would be best to take them out during night time.

French Bulldog
