Lhasa apso. Hailing from Tibet, this small lap dog is made to be a pet. Weighing less than 15 pounds, the Lhasa does require regular grooming and expects to be treated like a king.

Poodle. The miniature and toy poodle make excellent apartment pets. These dogs crave human companionship but need daily walks. Well known for being low shed, the poodle is one of the more popular canine apartment dwellers.

Bichon frise. This white fluff ball is a happy-go-lucky dog. Faithful and obedient, the bichon is a wonderful addition to any apartment. Weighing around 15 to 20 pounds, the bichon does require regular grooming to keep his coat looking great.

Boxer. As a medium-sized dog, the boxer is one of the largest breeds that can do well in an apartment. Their short hair and pleasant disposition make them a great choice for an apartment dweller who wants a dog of substance. Brief daily walks are enough to keep this dog happy and healthy.

Boston terrier. The Boston is a small black and white terrier that loves to make you laugh. After brief periods of activity, the Boston loves to curl up on the sofa while you read a good book. Obedient and loyal, the Boston is a good watch dog.

Dachshund. With their short legs and long bodies, the dachshund can do well in an apartment. They do enjoy a good walk or run in the park, or even the occasional wiener race, but the dachshund is also comfortable in a nice warm bed.

English bulldog. Once you get used to their snoring, the bulldog will prove to be a cherished family pet. Not much on exercise, the bulldog just needs to spend some time checking out the grass several times a day.

Cairn terrier. Despite their small size, the cairn terrier is a tough little dog. This breed does well in any living environment as long as there are people around. As a terrier, this breed does need exercise but does not require a large living space.

Chihuahua. What the Chihuahua lacks in size he certainly makes up for in personality. Faithful and protective, this dog does well in even the smallest of apartments. Weighing around 5 pounds, the Chihuahua is relatively easy to train and care for.

Pomeranian. This little fluff ball looks just like a tiny fox. Weighing around 5 pounds, the Pom is an adorable breed that thrives on human companionship. Requiring little space, the Pom is perfect for an apartment.

Maltese. This popular breed of royalty expects to be treated like a princess. With a long flowing white coat, the Maltese does require regular grooming but prefers to be pampered instead of working for a living. This results in a docile and great apartment companion.
