What is a good, smaller yet active dog for living in a town house?
hey there, so we've decided to get a dog/puppy. One of the two, but since we are living in a town house, we can't have a dog that is large, I think it depends on how big a medium sized dog would be, but that means no labs, german shepherds, things of that sort for us.D; I am looking for an active dog whom I can do stuff like agility, be able to job/bike, or just walk with. Any suggestions?

First of all don't ever bike with your dog. It's very dangerous. A jack russell, miniature pinscher or rat terrier sound like good choices. Check em out. And don't forget about all the homeless mixed breeds at the shelter. Check them out first. Be a pal, save a life.

I have a cardigan welsh corgi and a pembrooke welsh corgi, they're both very active and fun to play with and sound like the kind of dog you would like. They range from 23-28 pounds depending on the sex and type. Personally I like cardigans more.

A miniature schnauzer sounds great for you. I'd recommend them for agility ESPECIALLY because of their energy level. Mine LOVED agility when I took her out to do it, and she's still as energetic on her daily walk and romp we do now... More

My shih tzus are very active. They are constantly running around and playing with their toy..bringing them to me to play. I agree with an earlier answer...check out the shelters for a mixed breed of dog. There are some beautiful animals in shelters just waiting for you to take them home.

English cocker spaniels are like miniature retrievers and all around great dogs. Papillons excel in agility and are actually pretty good joggers. Terriers, if you can handle them, are big dogs in small dogs body. Shetland sheepdog are also good dog in agility and need a lot of exercise and are excellent first time dogs... More

I have a daschund/beagle mix that I got from my local shelter and she is awesome. She has a tiny frame and is long like a weenie but is sort of tall (long legs) like a beagle, she is about 15 pounds and PERFECT for inside living. She loves to go for runs/walks and is active but then knows when to come inside and calm... More

Well if you just want to walk with a dog you should get a maltese. Mine has a lot of energy but that's not true for all dogs of the same breed. They are hypo-allegenic so if you have friends over that are allergic to dogs they can play with you're dog without the runny nose or eyes. Maltese don't shed any hair... More
