Small and miniature breed dogs – generally those under 10 kg – are famously classified as "Toy", "Miniature" or "Companion" dogs. No matter what you call these furry little companions, you'll want to make sure they have everything they need for a happy, healthy life. For centuries they've been the favourite friends of humans everywhere, from Tibetan spaniel-loving Himalayan monks to Papillon-prizi European royalty. Other small breeds, like the terriers, were bred to toil tirelessly alongside their favourite humans. Whatever their original purpose, today these dogs are sure to win hearts wherever they go.
