What’s a whoodle?

Poodles fit all your criteria. They’re extremely small, social and under 50lbs.

I have no idea those 2 breeds you listed, but what do you mean, antisocial dog you have now. how? My dog has dog to dog food agression. And I couldn’t even fathom adding another dog to our situation only because I wouldn’t subject another puppy to that. What kind of issues does your dog have?

@futuremrssteel:  Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They love everyone and are super sweet. We have one and shes amazingly easy to train because she just wants us to be happy. She is 18lbs, which is breed standard, but they like to overeat so they can end up being 25lbs if you don’t pay attention to how many treats you give them.

I second cavalier king Charles spaniels but my true opinion would be to adopt.

ETA: are you sure you want to add a second dog? If you have one puppy with behavioral issues, two is probably asking for trouble. Just trying to be honest.

I don’t want to sound narky.  But I would work on the behaviour problems of your current dog before getting another.  Last thing you want to end up with is two anti social dogs.

I think another Question is what activity level are you looking for? Some small dogs are very active (like my bichon), while others are more laid back (my parents shih tzu).

we have a mini labradoodle – i’ve posted pictures of her on this board before so feel free to check out those out.  she’s 4 years old and 23 pounds and does not shed one bit – best dog ever!  she’s SUPER friendly and was very well socialized as a puppy (we got her from a breeder).  she has the best temperament and loves all dogs and people. seriously, besides loving to lick your face (which not everyone enjoys…) and a somewhat sensitive stomach, she’s the perfect dog.  please feel free to ask me any other questions you have about mini doodles!

I wanted to add, you make a dog social- so if you want it to be social, take it everywhere as a puppy.  I took my dog EVERYwhere.  Even grocery stores (in my arms or in my coat with her head sticking out like a baby ๐Ÿ™‚ -I realize that won’t quite fly in other parts of the country!)  Take it to dog parks, friend’s houses and parties.

@BlondeMissMolly:  I’ll second adopting. We adopted our cavie and even though she had spent her whole life making puppies and wasn’t house trained (she was 5 then), it only took a few weeks for her to become the perfect pet. When we got her she seemed sad for a few days (FI claims she really liked our home and was nervous she wouldn’t get to stay long so she was trying not to get attached) but after that her cavie personality really started to shine.

@asscherlover omg that’s EXACTLY what we will be looking for in the next year or so. There are SO many cavaliers that were momma dogs at puppy mills out there. So sad ๐Ÿ™ but that’s awesome you got so lucky with her! ๐Ÿ™‚

Australian Shepard. My Aussie is brilliant. (I might be a little biased.) She also happens to weigh 49 lbs, so comes in just under your weight limit! ๐Ÿ™‚
