The Pomeranian is an adorable dog with a mellow and gentle personality, but they can sometimes get noisy (just like children). As a matter of fact, if you want a Pomeranian, they are great with kids, just as long as they are introduced as puppies. However, because Pomeranians shed profusely, it may not be the best choice for a house with very small children.
Meek though they may look, this small dog can really pack a punch in attitude. They are known for nipping at children (probably not the best choice for a house with kids) or barking incessantly at strange dogs. They can also be loud and demanding. But before you cross this breed off the list, you should know that the Chihuahua is loyal and affectionate, even seen canoodling with cats every one in awhile (after an adjustment period, of course).
9. Miniature Schnauzer
Known for being less aggressive than the usual terrier, the small bearded Miniature Schnauzer is playful, spunky, and curious. So curious, in fact, that they may bark at every passerby it sees through your window. That being said, Miniature Schauzers enjoy the company of children and make for an excellent family pet.
