Going to a shelter and finding an adult dog is your best bet. No puppy in the world is going to be contented to lie on your lap, lol, but a grown dog, maybe four or five years old, would be your dog.

Remember, though, every dog, no matter how old or how complascent, needs exercise and care and some mental stimulation.

Hmmmm....if you want a small dog that will just sit around all day with short hair.....I'd say French Bulldog. lol They aren't very active, they have short hair, and they are small.

What about a Westie? My last dog was a Westie Mix, and although he liked a couple of good walks a day, he was very much a lap dog

A pembroke or short-haired dachshund sounds right for you.
