Many people opt for shy dog breeds due to their own introverted, calm and reserved nature. The list of shy dog breeds include Bichon Frise, Maltese and Shih Tzu. If you are looking for a shy and calm-natured dog that doesn’t need that much physical activity, take a look at our AnimalWised timid dog breeds list.
Don't forget that even though a dog may have a more introverted nature, dogs are intrinsically sociable animals that need to relate to other people and animals. In fact, their happiness depends on it! Even if you opt for a wonderfully shy natured dog, socialising them is incredibly important.
