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.
Most all dogs will get along well with children if they are raised with them. However, some breeds have a protective streak in them and may become aggressive with children who get to close at meal time (although this should not be tolerated), or aggressive with children they have never met. These breeds will likely see the children as being underneath themselves in the "pack order" and may try to dominate them.
All dogs should get as much exercise as possible. A daily walk is sufficient for most breeds. But most small dog breeds, for example Toy dogs such as Pugs, Maltese or Yorkshire Terriers, will get the majority of their required exercise needs just be walking, running and playing around indoors.
