Breed We Sell

Trying to figure out which small breed dog you want to welcome into your home can be both exciting and nerve-racking. Each dog breed brings something slightly different to the table in terms of everything from temperament to the amount of care they require.

For more than 20 years, Pauley’s Pups has provided people with small and toy breed puppies for sale in the Richmond, VA area. We carry a variety of different small breed puppies and specialize in helping people and families find the right fit based on their individual needs. Here are some of the puppies you’ll find when you stop by our pet shop as well as a little bit of information about some of them.


Believe it or not, Chihuahuas are one of the oldest dog breeds in the country. They weigh under six pounds and are known for being loyal, charming, sassy, confident, and full of personality.

Lhasa Apso’s

Lhasa Apso’s can grow to anywhere from 12 to 18 pounds and have a trademark coat that falls all the way down to the floor. Lhasa Apso’s are intelligent, confident, and even comical at times.


Maltese have long coats just like Lhasa Apsos do, but they’re just a fraction of their size. They usually weigh under seven pounds and grow to be less than ten inches long. What they lack in size, they more than make up for in personality. They’re gentle and affectionate dogs that are also playful and, maybe above all else, charming.

Miniature Dachshunds

Although most Miniature Dachshunds rarely hit the ten-pound mark, they have an unmistakable look thanks to their long bodies and their short legs. They also have larger-than-life personalities that make them stand out. You’ll find they are curious dogs that are friendly, spunky, and smart.


Originally bred for those who were a part of the ruling classes in ancient China, Pekingeses are blessed with coats long around the neck and shoulder areas. It gives them a regal look. They can get to be up to 14 pounds when fully grown and are just about as affectionate and loyal as they come.


There are some Pomeranians as small as 3 pounds. That doesn’t stop them from being bold and lively. They’re also very alert and intelligent dogs, and they’re easier to train than most other small breed puppies.

In addition to the small dog breeds we’ve already discussed, Pauley’s Pups also carries lots of other small breed options, including:

  • Papillons
  • Pugs
