Awesome Dog Breeds for Apartment Living.

Say you live in a 300 square foot micro-apartment. (That is, your broker told you it’s 300 square feet—you’re skeptical.) You’re a minimalist when it comes to furnishings and decor, but you still barely have room for the basics, let alone space for a dog to play. You live near a dog run, though, and maybe with the perfect dog walker, you could make it work.

With a little research and time, you can find a great dog to fit any space, including a small apartment. And you don’t have to shell out $2,000+, either. Your local pet rescue network, and volunteers can help you choose the perfect pooch for you. However, you go about finding your new dog, get ready for an awesome new buddy, and even better karma.

If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.

Top 5 Breeds

There are several things to consider if you’re looking to welcome a four-legged companion into your apartment or city home. Will the dog bark a lot and disturb your neighbors? How energetic is the breed, and will the dog do well without a huge house or large backyard to run around in? Is the dog breed sociable, or will the dog be prone to nervousness and/or fear around crowded sidewalks, noisy subways, and loud dog parks?
