Toy Group

Toy breeds might be short on size, but they are definitely not short on personality! Breeds in the Toy group are affectionate, sociable, and adaptable to a wide range of lifestyles. Just don’t let their size and winsome expressions fool you: they are smart full of energy and many have strong protective instincts. Toy dogs are popular with city dwellers because they make ideal apartment dogs and terrific lap warmers on nippy nights.
