The best small dog for indoors?
Sun, 08-11-2013 - 9:19am

I am looking for a small, indoor dog with shorter hair as companion for my mother. She is eldery and can get about but would not be able to take it out walking.She would be letting it out in the yard a few times a day to take care of business. Her last companion was over 80 lbs and I am looking for something much, much smaller. She will most likely treat it like a child so it will need to be a breed that is suitable for that kind of life. I know absolutely nothing at all about dogs so I appreciate the help.
