Amazing Dog Breeds That Every Future Puppy Owner Must See

So, you’re thinking of getting a puppy. First-time puppy-owners, don’t fret there are about 200 different dog breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) which means that whatever type of person you are, whatever your situation is, there is probably a specific type of dog for you. Below is a list of the top 10 puppies perfect for first-time puppy owners: they are smart, friendly, and relatively low maintenance.


There is a lot of stigma surrounding Chihuahuas; that they are loud, territorial, and feisty. Don’t let that scare you off this sweet breed. Though they tend to be unfriendly with strangers and other dogs, they adapt very well to their people. They become very affectionate and protective over their family. They also require little grooming and exercise, great if you are a busy person.


Poodles are great, adaptable dogs. They are also smart and easily trainable, great for new owners. Despite their long, curly fur, they shed minimally. Poodles also come in a variety of sizes; they can be little toy dogs that snuggle on your lap or medium-sized dogs that can live in a small apartment.

Shiba Inu

Shiba Inus adapt easily in any environment—be it in a small city apartment or a rural area with a large yard. If you are someone who is constantly out of the house, then the shiba inu may be the dog for you. They are friendly but can stand to be alone, and their energy makes them great running partners.


Speaking of low-maintenance, bulldogs are resilient, gentle dogs. They require minimal exercise; just a short walk around the block should do it. Then, they happily take a nap on the couch. Their gentle and low-maintenance nature make them a great companion for kids. However, they don’t do well in extremely hot or cold environments.

Bichon Frise

Bichon Frises are also a low-maintenance breed. Other than cuddles, affection, and regular grooming, they are easy to take care of and easy to train. They are great additions to families. Bichons are popular for experienced and new pet-owners.

Golden Retriever

Golden retrievers are popular because they are generally very fun-loving, smart, and affectionate. However, golden retrievers blossom when they are with company. So, if you’re looking for a pup that can keep you company and someone to go jogging with. Keep in mind though that golden retrievers are bigger than the other dogs mentioned above, it’ll serve you and your pup well to consider a sufficient living space.


Yorkipoos are a hybrid of Yorkshire terriers and Poodles. They adapt well to either apartments or homes. Like other dogs, they require daily exercise. Because they do tend to be energetic, a game of fetch or a run around the block is enough for these little creatures.


Another small indoor dog that will adapt just fine in a small apartment, the puggle, is a hybrid of pugs and beagles. When training, puggles do much better when there is positive reinforcement. They can make do with short play time.


Papillons are active small dogs who are easy to train and love interacting with people. They are also simple to take care of, generally healthy pups. But because of their delicate knees, they should not be overfed.


Mutts are dogs with mixed breeds, hence they come in a variety of shapes and sizes, personalities and temperaments. But, they are typically healthier and more resilient than purebreds. They are varied, therefore their temperaments make them unpredictable, but like other dogs, with proper care, they will also be affectionate and friendly.

Though these dog breeds are typically low-maintenance, they do require care and love. Dogs tend to be sensitive and respond well to genuine care. If their basic needs are met, they will pay their people back with affection and loyalty.
