In this category, you will get different small breed dogs who are between 12 to 18 inch ( 30-45 cm). A number of the larger members of the terrier group are featured here, along with dogs such as the Shar-pei and Basenji that are relatively new introductions on the international canine scene. The shorter hounds, such as the Beagle, are also included, as well as smaller spaniel dog breeds. When considering the size of dogs, it is worth remembering that the height of male dogs may be fractionally more than that of bitches. Where this affects the divisions on this website, the breed is grouped within the smaller size category.
