Some Miniature Dog Breeds We See Here at Ruffit

Here at Ruffit Dog Carriers, our carriers are for small breeds only (up to 25 pounds and 18 inches long) and we have a list of a few miniature breeds we see here! Tiny bunches of cuteness!

POMERANIAN

Pomeranians are affectionate and compact. They are very sociable and playful so playtime is a frequent must! Their sizes can range from 3 to 7 pounds, sometimes larger!

POODLE

Poodles come in three sizes: toy, miniature, and standard. Poodles are extremely intelligent and one of the most trainable dog breeds. The smallest size can measure between 4 to 6 pounds!

DACHSHUND

These pups also come in different sizes: miniature and standard. Dachshunds are short-legged, long-bodied, devoted, and love to chase anything as they are the “Badger Dog”. They can weigh less than 11 pounds up to 33 pounds!!

SHIH TZU

Shih Tzu means little lion but they aren’t very ferocious. This breed is one of the most popular companion breeds in the United States. They can range from 8 to 16 pounds!

 

MALTESE

This breed is fearless and noble. They even had ancient Greek temples built in their honor! Their size can be from 5 to 10 pounds.

Papillon


Papillons get their French name because of their butterfly-like ears. They are very active and are great competitors in agility and obedience. They can weigh up to 10 pounds!


Chihuahua


Chihuahuas are you stereotypical lap dog. But this breed can be somewhat temperamental and difficult to train due to their sassy nature. These pups can be as small as 3 pounds!

Brussels are alert, loyal, and interestingly cute! They are named for their city of origin: Brussels, Belgium. Their sizes can vary from 7 to 12 pounds.

Pekingese


The Pekingese are total couch potatoes! Pekingese pups are stubborn, opinionated, and lazy but very cuddly and good companions. They can weigh up to 14 pounds.
