My Westie, Nora, is a whole bunch of dog in a little body, but she loves to be cuddled. High energy which makes her personality very FUN FUN FUN but then can relax in your arms to cuddle. She is a barker though at ANYTHING that makes noise. But that just plays into her personality. My other dog, Cocker Spaniel (Sadie) is also a lovey dovey. But she is more medium build, and actually at the moment a porker!

Just remember, every dog is diffrent and will react to what you do. A little dog is not necessarily a more cuddlier (sp? lol) than a larger dog. Visit a local shelter and see what dog you connect with. You can't get any better with that

You drew the quiet Doxie, eh, Dena? I've known people who had Doxies that were live wires - which made sense when you remember that they used to go down badger holes after quarry! Any dog that will go after a badger like that is one tough, brave, game dog!

Go to a shelter and visit small, older dogs, or get a cat.

just because i have 2 small ones .. Oreo is a Yorkie/Pomeranian mix.. his hair is fluffy, and doesn't grow so long lol.. and Ginger is pure Yorkie.. they are both nice pups that sit in my lap.. but they can be extremely hyper!!! and nosey at that..

they are great companions, but so is every other dog i've had the opportunity to meet, spend time with. my top choices out of experience for a small dog would be, Yorkshire terrier, Pomeranian & Maltese!

petfinder.com is great also! i've given that site to many of my friends whom adopted from there, so good luck and i hope you find the right one!

yorkies seem to be the older woman dog of choice lately..i see these sweet old widows everywhere with one on a leash..in their bag at the store..amazed me how many old woman brought them up to have their pic taken with santa too..thought it lovely that they did that
wonder if their is a yorkie rescue? Bet there are some old women living those dogs when they leave this earth...i told Jim when he had cancer that he should put Garg and Annie on a list for adoption..i couldn't take them because Bronki hated Garg and i can only have two anyway. Those lists are out there, i know they are. He didn't do it and left those two dogs in the same dire straits he left me. It was wrong of him...he just didn't think that he would die from his cancer and didn't prepare. Many people do tho..you might find a nice little already trained dog out there that is past the hyper toddler stage and is ready to settle down in your lap as you want!

I was trying to look for a yorkie rescue, because a few of my friends wanted to adopt a yorkie and there weren't any in the shelter.. but they are doing some research right now.. i told them about petfinder.com so hopefully that helps!

by the way i'm not an old lady! but i love yorkie terriers! and i too put them in my purse lol..

beeee careful..my mom had an italian greyhound..tossed the cat off the table and it landed on her little dog and broke poor midgy's pelvis. i had a big dog and a little dog..but were raised together..a big puppy would be the same size as your dolls..they are the sweetest little guys i have ever seen!
