Toy Group Summary

Dogs of this group have one primary function, delighting their owners. Historically, these dogs were kept as symbols of affluence, as watchdogs, or for the health function of attracting fleas away from their owners. The small size of these lapdogs can be misleading since they are often very tough. An example of this is the Chihuahua, which has a bark that is hard to ignore or forget.

These dogs are ideal for people who live in cities and apartments. These smaller breeds are also popular because they are easier to own. They shed less and have a lower cost of care.
