The Perfect Pets for Small Homes

If you live in a small space, whether that be an apartment or a single floor home, then it might seem like a challenge to have a large pet or two — no matter how badly you want one. However, there are many smaller animals that you can adopt that will not only keep you company but will fit perfectly in your small living space!

Without further ado, here are some options to choose from:

Pets for Small Living Spaces

Betta Fish

One of the most popular types of fish happens to be the Betta fish! Having originated in Southeast Asia, this aquatic creature will make for the perfect tiny companion! In addition to the vibrant array of colors they come in and their mesmerizing fins, it’s relatively simple to take care of Betta fish — they thrive when in a standard, small tank (not a colossal one)!


An ideal pet that has been a household favorite since around the 1930s is the hamster! These sweet, cuddly animals are super simple to take care of and are known to be an excellent “fur baby”! Besides needing a small cage that gives them enough room to run around and play, hamsters require water, pellets, and love — that’s it!


You might have seen this one coming, but felines are a fantastic choice for smaller spaces! As it’s known, cats don’t take up a lot of room and can make the most of tinier environments. In fact, there are many cat breeds to choose from, such as:

  • Siamese Cat

  • Scottish Fold

  • Persian Cat

  • Russian Blue

  • Balinese Cat

Small Dogs

Of course, how could we not mention dogs? While it might not be ideal to have a big breed, such as a Great Dane, smaller canines are an excellent match! Some breeds to consider are (but are not limited to):

  • Boston Terrier

  • Pug

  • Maltese

  • Pomeranian

  • Dachshund

  • Lhasa Apso
