9. Dachshund
The loveable Dachshund comes in two sizes and three different types of coats. They are great for apartment dwelling, and they are fine with a short daily walk. If you want to give your dog lots of treats, this might not be the breed for you, if they become overweight it is very hard on their long spine. They are generally playful and intelligent and make great pets for retirees who want a companion that isn't too demanding. See dogtime.com for more details about this breed.
