Which small dog should i get?

The options they sell here are pretty much yorkies or pomeranians.

Also shitzu and chihuahuas. I also have a low energy persian cat.

Please help. I really want the dog in the photo it is 1.1k CAD should I get it? All the other yorkies had generic colouring or were uglier (if they were the beaver variety, they didn’t have nice colouring it just looked mixed up and messy)

Advice plz

    Mini poodle. Big enough that people are unlikely to step on them, but light enough to be carried. Very affectionate and intelligent. They also love to run and be outdoors. Mine hates the water, but he's an excellent hiking companion. Great recall and doesn't run out of eyesight.

    What a cute dog! I like them much better than most yorkie colorations I see.
    I'd say if you're leaning towards them already, go for it

      That's one of the reason there are so many poodle mixes.

    Toy poodles are pretty based. Really smart, don't shed or stink, and are fine in houses.

      Toy poodles are the kind of dog to vindictively piss in your shoe because you told it "No". They're the cats of the dog world.

    shihtzu-poodle mixes are amazing as long as you find the right temperment (the calmer the better). Also, can't go wrong with a proper Maltese or Bichon Frise, though the looks of the latter are definitely subjective to anyone under 65.

    Generally though, if you find a small dog that clearly is not neurotic or too unjustifiably vocal (this will get on your nerves quick), it's a safe bet

      oh and also if you're dropping a grand on a dog, dont forget to get ALL the paperwork from the breeder, you wanna keep your receipts on that one.

    I vote papillon, they're chill but will catch mice and other small pests. Very personable dogs that don't bark much and learn very easily, not super food motivated, good with kids, not nippy.

    are there any small dogs that aren't moronic inbred walking health problems that cost so much?

      Papillons are smart and have few health problems.

      Expensive, but imo on the cheaper end for little fancy breeds. Possibly too smart tho/some people refer to them as miniature border collies so some issues where they need to be mentally stimulated.

          Think of them more as the French equivalent to the King Charles Spaniel as they derive from the same toy spaniel ancestor(and the origins of that are speculative but some think potentially an offshoot of the shih-tzu ancestor).

          Here's some fairly solid proof that they're not derived from Chihuahua's as the paintings predate the arrival of Chihuahuas in Europe:
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papillon_dog
          >The history of the Papillon is traced through works of art. The earliest toy spaniels resembling the papillon are found in Italy. Titian painted these small dogs in many famous paintings beginning around 1500,[10] including the Venus of Urbino (1542).

        Among Yorkies, Pomeranians, Shitzu and Chihuahuas I would choose a Yorkie. They're usually nice, and healthy.
        1.1k seems like an average price, so no problem here.

        I agree with this anon

        Care less about what it looks like, go meet all of them and pick your favorite personality.

        , try to visit some of them.

        You're going to spend more than a decade with the dog, better invest a few hours to pick one you won't get sick of as soon as it's no longer a cute little puppy.

          That's a show malty. Normally you get them groomed and they look like this. I almost adopted one once, and I'm still pissed that I didn't. They have a lot of character.

          Their hairs are growing continuously, so if you don't cut them, they look like this. It's exactly the same for Yorkies.

      If I have to choose I’d go for Malteses again and again. I have two, both females, and they fill the house with joy, they’re not hysterical (although I think I got luck), very friendly with EVERYONE, super loyal and not very expensive to maintain.

      These are not Maltese. Although some crossings have been done here.

      This one is a Maltese in a show. You don’t have how fricking hard to maintain the hair like that can be. Hours and hours combing and treatments that will never be good for the dog, of course.

      Yeah, this is it. You can choose to let their hair get long, just be aware of hot temperatures outside. Also, like I pointed out before, long hair requires hard work.

          I'm not faulting you but when's the last time you looked at a shelter? It's literally 99% pitbulls nowadays and the ones that aren't pitbulls are taken

            Why?
            Is it really just breeding for fights or is there more to it?
            Are these fights really that common?

            Witnessed some pitbull dumping/abandonment recently. Multiple pitbulls showing up in the neighborhood out of nowhere like someone left them there rather than escaped. Older females. I don't get it, these fight rings can't be that common or lucrative compared to regular pet ownerserhip and breeding of other breeds

    Also it says it is 5 months old, if it has bad habits will it be hard to fix at this point?

    One last thing is that my neighbour where my parents live at the cottage is kind of psycho. He has a German shepherd who he claims is half wolf (he has a tendency to lie and it doesn’t look like part wolf to me at all). My parents have some land where it would be great for the dog to run when I visit. They mentioned I might get a dog and he said no don’t get one. Or at the very least not another male because they’ll fight (his dog isn’t neutered and he won’t neuter it) I told him not to worry it would be a female and I will spay her but I just thought it was really weird how he told me not to get a dog like wtf
