Need advice on what kind of little dog to buy
My mother wants to get a dog. She likes little dogs that she thinks are lap dogs (I find them instead to be overbreeded, yappy and high-strung). And she is getting older so I don't think she'll have the energy to deal with a high-maintenance dog.
One breed she is considering is a yorkshire terrier. Does anyone have opinions on whether those are overall good dogs are not?
Are there any other dog breeds you recommend that are small and cute, but are still relatively mellow and easy to deal with?
Obviously I'm generalizing and you can probably find good and bad dogs within any breed, but I am looking for general opinions as a place to start my research.
Thanks in advance for your help!
