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.
Dogs have been selectively bred for thousands of years, sometimes by inbreeding dogs from the same ancestral lines, sometimes by mixing dogs from very different lines. The process continues today, resulting in a widening in appearance without speciation, "from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane."
You do not have to have own a large house to own a large dog (although a tiny apartment is not going to be big enough for one of the giant breeds). If you can take him outside for a good hour of two of exercise every day... a large dog can live in a small house or apartment just fine.
