That’s why we need breeders of purebred dogs today. People who breed to preserve dog breeds are usually hobbyists. They may participate in dog shows or companion/performance events with their dogs. The dogs that they can’t keep are usually placed in pet homes. Yet cities and state legislatures are passing laws that can make it virtually impossible for smaller breeders to continue this important work.
All puppies are cute no matter what breed they happen to be, but there are certain breeds that grow up to be sweet looking adult dogs too which makes it hard to resist just falling in love with them all over again. Over recent years more and more hybrid dogs have appeared on the scene and all of them are adorable looking. However, some of the older breeds have been firm favourites for decades for this reason and it includes the two breeds mentioned below, but then there’s the Pomsky which is a newer breed that’s too cute for words.

Your dogs temperament should match yours. Do not choose a breed that is highly energetic if you are a couch potato. On the other hand, if you want a dog that will follow you everywhere around the house and who is always ready for a game of fetch or tug of war then you should consider a dog that is highly active and always has a lot of energy, instead of one of the lethargic breeds.
