Hello!

We recently lost our 14 year old Yorkie to cancer. He was a darling boy, but a typical terrier that loved the family and no one else. We know a bit more after owning him, but would love some help with our next dog.

We have a 3 year old girl who is good around dogs (as good as a 3 year old can be), but we'd love a dog that was small and family friendly. We love Yorkies, but know that they can be more difficult to socialize unless you know what you're doing.

We would love your suggestions on what we should get for our next dog and why!

Thank you in advance for your help!

Thank you for the kind words. We liked to take our dog for at least twice daily walks, being that he was so small around the block was fine for him, but we can do longer. We both work from home so we are available for the dog all the time. Professional grooming is fine and small to us is under 20 lbs. We are totally open to purebred or rescues.

Thanks again!

Thank you for the recommendations. We haven't looked into the Havanese or Boston Terrier!

We need to spend more time with a local rescue, but the ones around me that I've reached out to warn against small dogs with children under 5. I am no dog expert, so I appreciate learning about everyone's experiences. Thank you!
