These ‘toy’ dogs are the ideal choice for Christmas (NOT a real dog)
Christmas is definitely not the time of year to be purchasing a puppy. Respected dog charities the RSPCA and Dogs Trust have long campaigned to educate people on this matter, here at Gencon we completely agree that the festive season is NOT the right time of year to be introducing a new pet into your family. Gencon suggest you opt for a more sensible choice and take home one of these furry little friends instead.
1. Cheeky Burnese Mountain Puppy
This cheeky chap is found of long mountain walks and is set to grow into a gentle giant who will pull his weight in dog biscuits if given half the chance. He has a rough and rugged look but underneath all that fur is a loveable heart ready for a festive cuddle with his new owner.
2.Compact Sausage Dog
Smaller than the average dog in the park this cute and cuddly ‘sausage dog’ is the perfect companion to cuddle up to after a wet and windy day. He probably wont grow any bigger so is a great choice for a lap dog.
3.Bouncing Dalmatian dog
This show stopper of a dog will attract attention on walks so be sure you invest in a good pair of sunglasses to avoid panda eyes in all those pictures! Luckily for any potential owners this dalmatian will not multiply into 101 like its famous predecessor.
4.Powerful Husky puppy
This husky may be a lot smaller than its real counterpart but its sure to be a big hit in the love stakes! The husky comes from Siberia and his dense coat ensures this working breed is designed to work hard and play hard so has the ideal temperament.
This Spaniel comes in the traditional colour ways popular in this traditional medieval French breed. Typical Gun-dog traits include the ability to retrieve, however its unlikely this cuddly replica will forage for much.
6.Doug the loveable Pug
Doug the Pug as he is aptly named is one of the most popular soft toy dogs this year. Famous for being the perfect size for a lap dog Pugs have heaps of character and boundless energy so this little fella will keep you entertained over the Christmas season.
7.Traditional Scottie dog
Popular in northern climes the Scottish terrier is one of the most loyal of breeds. This traditional looking scottie dog is a cuddly chap who will fit in well to any classic home. Perfect for adopting his perch at the foot of the bed this fella is unlikely to cause much trouble in the household.
8.Everyones favourite the Black Lab
Labradors are popular across the globe thanks to their floppy ears and ability to be trained into loyal and compassionate dogs.
That completes our guide to the top alternative Christmas dogs to welcome into your home this festive season.
