You've probably seen photos and videos that perpetuate this myth. A socialite walks around in a dress worth more than the average car. In her purse — which costs more than the dress — you can spot the head of a pampered pup peeking out. Surely that dog doesn't have the charm and unconditional love you'd find in a large breed, right?

Wrong! Small dogs can be just as affectionate and friendly as their larger cousins. Owners have a big impact on how their pets behave, and dogs learn what's acceptable from the way their people treat them. Give a small dog love and encouragement, and you'll likely find a loving and outgoing companion.
