Small Dog Breeds With Curly Tails (Must-Read!)

Many of the more common small dogs with curly tails have a genetic predisposition to curly tails, and this is often passed down from one or both parents. In some cases you will see two dogs with curly tails, both belonging to the same litter.  Even though there are plenty of dogs out there that look beautiful, you can’t discount the curly tail breed just because it doesn’t look like your regular kind. You have to first understand what makes a curly dog so unique.

The first thing you need to understand about the curly tail is its personality. Because these dogs have so many traits, it is easy for them to stand out among the rest of the pack. When you notice a curly tail, you should take a second and look into the traits of the dog. You may find out that it has a particularly loving personality, or perhaps even has special traits that set it apart from other dogs.

The Pomeranian dog is a gorgeous breed of long-haired dog of the Toy type called the Pomeranian spitz. Often classed as a smaller toy breed due to its rather small size, the Pomeranian belongs to the family of larger German spitz-type dogs. This beautiful and lovable small dog is an excellent choice for those who wish to have a pet with a friendly disposition. These are great pets for small children, since they make great companions.

However, these dogs should be socialized early on so that they do not turn aggressive towards small children. Pomeranian pomeranians have a strong herding instinct and need to be trained accordingly. Although these dogs are very protective and loyal, they can become overly aggressive if they are not trained properly.

The pug is a lovely breed of dog characterized by a short, wrinkly, curly tail and a generally floppy, hound-like face. The pug usually has a compact, square muscular body with long, well-developed muscles and a silky, soft coat which come in an array of colors, most frequently black or brown. Pugs are extremely popular as house pets because of their friendly, gentle nature and intelligence, although they can also be hostile toward humans. 

If your Pug does suffer from this disorder, you should ensure that you are keeping his weight under control and that he has regular exercise on a regular basis. You can help prevent the development of this disorder by choosing a breed that has relatively high activity levels.

The Basenji is an excellent breed of small hunting dog. These types of canine companions have an excellent temperament and are easy to train. Basenji mixes are often very intelligent and are eager to please. Because they mix the purebred sighthounds with the powerful and hunting-style basenji, you can be sure that your new dog will bring lots of fun into your life. The average size of Basenji mixes is twenty-one inches, although they can get larger.

Their average weight is 24 pounds, and they do have a tendency to shed a lot. They are a very healthy breed, that has a physical energy and personality. If you do, the Basenji can be a great pet. While the coat of many other breeds may not look very appealing to you, the Basenji has an attractive silky, lustrous and shedding coat. It is a breed that needs regular grooming and may have a problem shedding if you are not prepared to take care of the dog

The Chihuahua originated from the ancient Mexican state of Chihuahua and is best known as a short-haired and small breed of dog with a cute, energetic disposition. Most Chihuahuas are known to be calm, sweet, and affectionate, but some are known to be playful and rambunctious. While the Chihuahua has the smallest body size of all the dog breeds, they are surprisingly strong and sturdy, and have a high level of intelligence.

These traits make them great companions and great pets for children and adults alike. A Chihuahua requires regular exercise and lots of food to help promote a healthy coat and skin. To keep your Chihuahua healthy and happy, take him for frequent and regular grooming appointments, and make sure that he eats only quality dog food.
