    Small Dog Breeds With Minimal Shedding

    Toy poodle. The smallest of the poodle variations, toy poodles are sweet, friendly and gentle. They make great additions to small families and do well with apartment living.

    Shih Tzu. Shih Tzus are happy and energetic, making them great companions for families as well as other pets. These little balls of fluff also have long, luxurious coats that are virtually shed-free.

    Silky terrier. A cross between the Australian and the Yorkshire terriers, silky terriers have soft, silky and shiny hair that lends this breed its name. They're active, energetic and extremely social.

    Yorkshire terrier. Though they're one of the smallest dog breeds, Yorkshire terriers have a big-dog attitude. They also have long, glossy coats that require frequent grooming.

    Brussels griffon. Brussels griffons are intelligent and cheerful with affectionate personalities. They do well with apartment living — provided they are walked daily.

    Bichon frise. Bichon frises are tiny powder puffs with giant hearts. Their low-shedding, cream-colored hair never stops growing and needs plenty of grooming.

    Maltese. Weighing in between 4 and 7 pounds, Malteses are one of the most gentle-mannered dog breeds and are full of energy and very playful. They have plenty of long, silky hair that requires daily brushing.

    If you want to hang up the lint roller for good, think about bringing home one of these small dog breeds with minimal shedding.
