Medium Dog Breeds



Not too big, not too small, medium dogs are just right for an owner who wants a dog with a little more substance without tipping the scales. Ranging from 20-60 lbs, these sturdy and reliable breeds like the Australian Shepherd, the French Bulldog and the American Pit Bull Terrier, are not going to fit in your purse, but you still might be able to pick them up. Many of the medium sized breeds are appealing to families who have smaller children, but don’t have the space for a larger dog.
