The List

Toy is not actually a size of dog, it is a class. It is commonly referred to as a size, though, because all dogs in this class are quite small. They all make good lapdogs and can be carried very easily. Many of them require grooming and have very beautiful coats. Here is a list of most of the toy dog breeds. All of these breeds are very small. I have also included ratings of each breed's aggression, playfulness, watch dog ability, grooming, shedding, energy, and intelligence. Remember, though, that each individual dog can be different in certain categories from the breed average. So it is okay if you have a dog that doesn't match up with the ratings on this site.

      thanks for commenting PapillonEnthusiast, I must have made a mistake there, I have been around many Papillons and they are extremely smart. I fixed it in the hub, and tell me if you notice anything else that doesn't seem to be correct

      What are you basing intelligence on? Papillon dogs only medium intelligence? This breed is known for their intelligence as they rate #8 on Stanley Coren's "The intelligence of Dogs"
