Let’s face it.

When it comes to having some of the cutest small dog breeds for sale in Illinois, Furry Babies takes the cake – hands down and we’re proud of our precious puppies! When they leave our care, we want to ensure that they go to families and homes that will take the best care of them. Below are three of the top small dog breeds for sale and information on how to care for their little bodies!

Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkies are one of the most popular small dog breeds for sale! They are the truest definition, quite frankly! Full grown Yorkies weigh 4 to 7 pounds. These pups are full of high energy, courage, and loyalty. And forget about their pint sizes because they actually make excellent guard dogs. They will bark to alert you.


The fearless Maltese is one of the tiniest of the small dog breeds for sale. They can weigh anywhere from 6 to 9 pounds. The “mane” attraction of the Maltese is their snowy white coat. It’s luxurious and if groomed correctly, will stay silky and healthy. They have a long lifespan of 15 years.


And the award for “Puffiest Pooch” goes to the Pomeranian! These little lionesses are 7 to 10 pounds of show-stopping fun! They have larger than life personalities and make the best purse companions.

How to Caring for Small Dog Breeds

It’s winter and it’s important that you keep your small dog warm. Because they’re small, they are more likely to be chilly. Purchase some clothing to keep them comfortable. Have fun with it! It’s quite easy to find fashionable, yet practical clothes for small dog breeds, ranging from jackets and sweaters to t-shirts and tanks! Our point is that you need to make sure that you regulate their body temperature in all seasons. Because of their little sizes, a non-electric heating pad would be nice and cozy to place in their crates.


Always pay attention to your dog’s physical locations when they’re not in your lap or arms! Really small dog breeds can squeeze into really small spaces. They can injure themselves while trying to escape and maneuver from where they may be trapped. We closely monitor our small dog breeds for sale when they’re playing for that reason!
