I love my dog Stella but I think people should be aware of a breed and how they age in their lifetime. As a puppy Stella was destructive, as most puppies are. She's definitely neurotic and that can sometimes be expressed physically with holes in sheets or things of that nature.

She barks a lot, and almost all weenies do. If you don't want a dog that barks, DO NOT GET THIS BREED. They can't help it.

PROS:
No grooming necessary for short hairs
They are very smart and love food so training them can be easy
Very, very, very loyal. They love you and you are the center of their world
Not a lot of exercise needed but would suggest non-apartment living due to noise/barking
