Sometimes we wish our big dogs could go back to being puppies again because of how adorable they were (not that being big changes that)! Thankfully, nature has blessed us with breeds and mixed breeds of dogs that stay small forever and they’re some of our favorite things in the whole world!
Bright Side loves both big and small dogs but we feel like the little ones don’t get as much attention, so here are 15 pictures of some of the smallest furry friends out there!
1. Golden Cocker Retriever
This bundle of adorableness is called a Golden Cocker Retriever and it will absolutely forever stay a puppy! We can’t think of many things better than this vital information!
2. Shih Tzu
The Shih Tzu is the only dog breed that somehow manages to look very wise yet very young and adorable!
3. Yorkshire Terrier
Yorkies are one of the most popular dog breeds, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC). They may be small, but they are very feisty and playful!
Pomeranians are quite possibly the sweetest little dogs ever! And a good dog groomer can turn them into mini teddy bears. What’s not to love about that?!
According to the AKC, they are very outgoing and can comfortably live both in the city and the suburbs.
We can’t forget Pugs! These goofy cuties have been bringing joy to people for centuries. Their big sparkly eyes and wrinkles are what makes them different than the other dogs but in a good way!
Beagles are yet another dog breed that stays little forever, except for their ears. Their ears are always big and that’s exactly what makes them so popular!
7. French Bulldog
French Bulldogs are the mini-version of regular bulldogs, except they still have big ears which is their trademark feature! They’re very playful and smart but are also very friendly toward people and other animals alike.
Maltese doggies are the epitome of elegance and charm, mostly thanks to their long white fur coat! Of course, they stay small forever and are an excellent companion for anyone.
9. Cocker Spaniel
This list would be incomplete without mentioning the Cocker Spaniel. They’re absolutely gorgeous and sweet with curly fur and long ears that just must be touched no matter what! We can’t help but pet a Cocker Spaniel’s ears — they’re so lush and pretty and are exactly what makes them stand out!
10. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is true royalty in the canine world! They’re just as adorable as the Cocker Spaniel, but they carry themselves with royal nobility!
Chihuahuas may look small and harmless, but they definitely possess a big-dog attitude and feistiness that more than makes up for their small size!
12. Tibetan Pug
Tibetan Pugs are a mix between Pugs and Tibetan Spaniels. They’re very friendly with kids but also bark a lot which makes them good watchdogs. Their biggest asset, however, is that beautiful, irresistible smile!
13. Toy Fox Terrier
Toy Fox Terriers have all the best dog qualities: lovability, charisma, friendliness, and tenacity. These little dogs will never let you have a boring day again!
Pomskys are our favorite mixed breed! This mix between a pomeranian and a husky is a guaranteed recipe for beauty!
Last, but not least, Corgies! They’re small but behave like big dogs and are very friendly!
Do you have any pups that stay that way forever? We encourage you to share them with us because we all need them in our lives!
