Which are the lightest dog breeds?

The Chihuahua is not only the smallest breed in the world, it is also the lightest. All the smallest breeds are classified as ‘Toy’ and are extremely popular as affectionate lapdogs. However, they also make good watchdogs, are intelligent, lively and very courageous (sometimes to the point of foolhardiness), and have been characterized as ‘little dogs with hearts and minds of lions’. They make great pets, but are equally at home ‘helping’ around the farm.
