- Basset hound
- Cavalier King Charles spaniel
- French bulldog
- Greyhound, or the smaller whippet
- Sporting dog (pointer, retriever, setter)
All dogs that require little exercise, although all dogs should be walked daily.
We’re considering getting a Greyhound (yes, another dog) when our ancient cat dies: they’re supposed to be nice, lazy dogs, despite their reputation for being athletic pets. Greyhound Pets of Atlantic Canada is an excellent resource for those looking to adopt a Greyhound; we’ll be getting ours from there.
