BEST DOGS FOR APARTMENTS DWELLERS
Apartment dwellers have lots breeds to choose from when selecting a dog. The size of your living space isn't the only consideration: some larger dogs are low energy, content to lounge on the sofa. And some small dogs with high energy are happy with indoor playtime or a brisk walk. Think of your neighbors, too. You'll want a dog that doesn't bark incessantly and is polite when meeting other people, in the elevator, on the stairs or in the lobby.
BEST GUARD DOGS
While many dogs will bark to let you know something's going on, a visitor, a squirrel, a leaf, some dogs are bred to take action and these are the real guard dogs. They're loyal, brave and extremely protective of their territory. Do your research before deciding one of these is right for you.
