Most popular small breeds of dogs

According to a survey by the American Pet Products Association (2019-2020), dogs are the most popular pet in America, with 63.4 million households owning them. They are also the most abandoned pets. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals reports that approximately 3.3 million dogs end up in shelters each year – a significant number of animals are abandoned by owners who find they cannot properly look after them.

If you are considering adding a dog to your family, it is important to do a lot of research beforehand. Part of being a responsible pet owner is being realistic about what you can handle. For example, do you live in a city apartment or on a large farm? Do you have room for a large dog to stretch its legs, or should you stick to something smaller? Does the pooch need to mix well with children or other dogs? Do you have plenty of time to devote to a needy breed or should you be looking for something more independent?

Stacker is here to help keep research and decision making going smoothly. Using data from the American Kennel Club’s dog profiles, we have compiled a list of the 30 most popular small dog breeds.

We ranked the dogs based on their 2019 AKC Popularity Rating, which was released in 2020.
