by VetDepot on April 24, 2014

sweet cavalier blogDogs come in all shapes and sizes. Some love to run, some love to play, and some are content just curling up in a warm lap for a nap. If you’re looking for an especially snuggly canine companion, you might consider one of these five breeds:

1.) Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (pictured right): These happy dogs are people pleasers! They love nothing more than to lounge around with their human companions.

2.) Maltese: Due to their small size, sweet temperament, and fluffy coats, these dogs make wonderful lapdogs.

3.) Pug: This happy little breed is full of affection!

5.) French Bulldog: These adorable dogs will gladly join their human family in some quality R&R time.

Not on the list but my 72lb rescue pit bull is the biggest cuddled ever. I even hold her like a child and she rests her head on my shoulder.

My Chihuahua is the most affectionate little dog. They say “don’t get a Chihuahua unless you want 5 pounds of love on your lap”. She is definitely a lap dog.
