      Small dogs seem like a great choice for people who live in small spaces like apartments or small homes. I do wonder if all small breeds are good pets for children, though, as some small dogs seem to be somewhat nervous and hyperactive -- or is that the result of their owner's training? Interesting and useful hub!

      That's quite a list you have prepared there, and yes little dogs can grow into big dogs, so you've taken the guesswork out of it.

      Pets are a wonderful subject for a hub, little dogs are just so cute.
