Dogs have a special talent for going above and beyond the confines of their size. My dog Radar thinks he’s a lap dog, despite being 40 pounds of solid muscle. He’s constantly squeezing himself into small spaces, usually in an effort to be as close to his people as possible. You have to admire that kind of determination.
From great, big dogs in teeny, tiny beds to itty bitty pups taking on Herculean tasks, these 16 dogs demonstrate that size is nothing but a number.
