									          TOY GROUP
            AKC RECOGNIZED BREEDS
    The diminutive size and winsome expressions of Toy dogs illustrate the main
 function of this Group: to embody sheer delight. Don't let their tiny stature fool you,
though - - many Toys are tough as nails. If you haven't yet experienced the barking
     of an angry Chihuahua, for example, well, just wait. Toy dogs will always be
  popular with city dwellers and people without much living space. They make ideal
apartment dogs and terrific lap warmers on nippy nights. (Incidentally, small breeds
    may be found in every Group, not just the Toy Group. We advise everyone to
  seriously consider getting a small breed, when appropriate, if for no other reason
    than to minimize some of the problems inherent in canines such as shedding,
creating messes and cost of care. And training aside, it's still easier to control a ten-
                     pound dog than it is one ten times that size.)
