4. Bedlington terrier
Although at first glance he looks more like a lamb than a dog, the Bedlington terrier could be the perfect canine addition to a laid-back family. These do not shed and are very mild-mannered.
Maxing out at 17 inches and 23 pounds (with males and females being far closer in size than many other breeds), they do very well in apartments as long as there’s plenty of room to play.
