Do you prefer your loyalty in a longhaired, wirehaired or shorthaired package? Take your pick because if you pick one of us, you’re going to be amazed at how much love and affection pours out of our adorable little bodies. Historically, we used to hunt small critters that burrowed in the ground, so we still love to bark, scratch and dig when something gets our attention. Inside we love to ‘burrow’ under blankets – with you. We’re like cosy little heating pads, even in the summer heat.
Speaking of short and cute, don’t miss the world’s tiniest dog breeds.
