STURDY doesnt' really match up with a sub 13lbs dog in my mind.

Even 14 pounds is way to big to be carrying around in a bag. My back hurts just thinking about it. Bostons are a bit too big as well, the smallest being under 15 pounds.

Not sure how big mini dachshunds are. My aunts male his huge, but hes not a mini either.

I would personally stick in the 3-7 pounds range which cuts a lot of breeds out. Maybe a yorkie, toy poodle, or Maltese? Those ones are pretty darn small.

those would be big on grooming tho..even kept in pet cuts. Low grooming was a requirement above there I think.

BTW, wow I JUST saw your balking at $1200...toy dogs, from GOOD breeders, COST A LOT. Most Maltese here go for $2000 and that is a PET DOG. Chi's similar.

If you want a dog below say $1K you should really consider a retired bitch or show dog, those sometimes are less, or HEY better yet! checking petfinder for an adult toy mix...there are PLENTY out there thanks to the designer dog balloon beginning to bust.

Yeah, your right. I guess that only leaves the chihuahua? lol. Not sure how much grooming papillons require, but they also have some long hair.

I cant come up with any other breed small enough to carry around in a bag. Petfinder is awesome. There is a good chance she can find something there! Totally worth a shot. Ouch 1,200...

dont get me wrong, i really also dont agree with a dog being in a bag all the time. i love dog parks, long walks,and all of that. but i also want a dog i can take with me on errands that i wouldnt otherwise be able to take a larger dog.
i spoke to my boyfriend, and he agrees an adult dog would be better. since the personality, size ect.. is already there (and we dont have to potty train ) lol

ive never bought a dog, i really didnt think $1000 was normal but i guess it is, all my other dogs have been mixes from animal control, so sorry if i dont know much about the process of buying one
ya 14 pounds is alot for me to carry around, finding a dog that small in a shelter is a long shot but its worth looking.
im just looking for a pet, with the right temperament and size. i wouldnt mind a mix, or an adult dog, that would really be better than a puppy actually lol
