Small dogs can make amazing pets, especially if you have a small living space. Unfortunately, many small dog breeds have a reputation for barking. They tend to act like they’re big and tough with a lot of bark.

If you have a small house with neighbors nearby, like a condo or apartment, your dog’s voice volume can quickly become an issue. There are, however, several smaller dog breeds that do not share the noisy Napoleon complex of their little peers.

If you’re looking for a small dog without the barks, whines, and yelping howls, then take a look at the 13 breeds of small, mostly calm dogs listed below! If you see a breed you like, check out The DogTime adoption page which allows you to search for adoptable dogs by breed and zip code!
