They say it’s not about the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog, yet none of the dogs we are about to talked about are known for their fighting. Still, itĀ seems that the smaller the dog the more aggressive it is, or at least that’s how the stereotype goes.

It wasn’t long ago that we talked about the largest dog breeds in the world but what is the smallest dog in the world today? The answer isn’t simple, as there are more than a few dog breeds who can rightfully be labeled as small, each with its own unique characteristics.

A Toy Poodle, like the name suggests, is extremely small even as an adult, earning his rightful place on our list. In general, Toy Poodles are extremely sociable and loyal to their owners, although they might not always be friendly towards other pets.

Furthermore, Toy Poodles are known for being quite intelligent and easy to train.
