Some historians believe this practice is where the idea of pain being transferred to animals from humans originated, which gave way to rituals such as burning the deceased with live dogs, such as the Techichi, to exonerate the deceased human's sins. Colonial records refer to small, nearly hairless dogs at the beginning of the 19th century, one of which claims 16th-century Conquistadores found them plentiful in the region later known as Chihuahua. Chihuahuas as we know them today remained a rarity until the early 20th century; the American Kennel Club (AKC) did not register a Chihuahua until 1904.

Fluffy small breed dogs seem to be getting more popular these days and we wanted to know why.

According to the American Kennel Club, the most popular breed in the U.S. is the Labrador Retriever, neither small nor fluffy, but when you clump fluffiness into a category of its own, the cuteness factor clicks on, and people's hearts begins to melt.

All these dogs share few factors in common with each other. The breeds originate in different countries, their personalities vary widely, and their care and grooming needs are even different.

But what they do have in common is their size. All are small, many very small. They have hair that grows often without much shedding involved making them very hairy dogs. But what distinguishes them as a unique group of canines?

That is easy.

It is the tendency to cause humans to go into a cuteness overload, which we have not been able to find a cure for as of now.
Some small dogs shed virtually no hair. These low-shedders shed so little that you'll struggle to find one hair in your home. If you hate dog hair and don't have time for extra vacuuming, then one of these breeds is right for you (choose a breed with a shedding rating of 2/10 or less).This is a list of small dog breeds which virtually don't shed any hair. If you own one of these dogs you'll be hard-pressed to find a hair in your home. That's how little they shed!Hair shedding is a normal thing that happens in canines be they small or big. New dog hairs replace old hairs that are old or damaged. The frequency and amount of canine hairs that are shed depend on the type of breed as well as the status of a dog’s health. Hair shedding is also due to change seasons for some canines. For example, a dog may grow thick coats for the winter and will shed those hairs when summer comes. Cleaning up the shed hair is a necessity, but can be time-consuming for some people. Hence the preferences of dog lovers for that don’t shed.Small dogs that don’t shed are a dog owner’s ideal pet for themselves and their families. Yes, small dogs are cute, playful and loving, but sometimes dealing with their shed hairs can be a bother sometimes. Non-shedding dogs, on the other hand, do not impose this kind of problem with their owners.All dogs with skin (which is all of them) produce dander. So there is no such thing as dog, big or small, that doesn't produce it and is therefore totally safe for allergy-sufferers. However, because small dogs have less skin, they produce less dander. It is also thought that breeds who are low hair shedders also shed less dander.
