I was wondering if anyone knew off hand some breeds that are under 10lbs, or sometimes are under 10lbs. My sister n law wants to get a puppy, but does not want a chi (darn) so I said I would help her research different breeds. I know of just a couple under 10lbs.
The trick of toy dogs, nonsporting and terrier dogs is that while most of them arent' very tall, many of them, terriers in particular, tend to be very stocky in the body. For example, the french bulldog is a small breed but they can weigh upt o like 28 lbs in the stanard. That's a very very sturdy small dog!
my female dachshund weights 9 lbs. she is very small. she was the smallest of her litter i geuss what you would call a "runt" her size has not slowed her down one bit. she is my jumper. i know that jumping is not good for her breed, but how do you tell her that? my male is 12 lbs. sally is longer than harley.
