The pocket-sized pooch makes an ideal household companion, especially for apartment dwellers or others who must keep a pet that will adapt to a confined space. However, author Dan Rice stresses that different small breeds have different personalities--a fact that should be kept in mind when prospective owners are first acquiring their canine pet. If the animal's and owner's lifestyles fail to match, trouble will follow. Described in this book are more than 50 small breeds, with information on their personalities, hereditary traits, nutritional needs, potential health problems, and more. Bichon Frise, Chihuahua, Jack Russell Terrier, Pomeranian, Shih Tzu, Toy Poodle, and many others are discussed in detail. Web addresses of breeders' clubs are also provided as sources of additional information. Appealing full-color photos throughout.
