16 Best Dog Breeds for Seniors

16. Chihuahua.

Since the smaller dog breeds are known for being great companions for the older adult, the Chihuahua is perfect for any senior who lives in an apartment, assisted living, or any smaller sized house. They are possibly the smallest dog breed that you can find, yet they are loving, playful, and even protective of their own family and pack. If you have grandchildren or even other smaller dogs, it may be important to provide this dog breed a bit of training before letting them loose in the house. If you want a lap dog and cherish the smaller breed then consider the popular Chihuahua as your next companion.
