11. Bichon Frise
Another small dog, the adorable Bichon Frise is a highly popular breed for seniors. Even large Bichon Frise dogs will barely reach 1 foot in height. Further, their silky, white curls do not shed, which makes them great for people with allergies. In addition, this breed is known to be highly playful and affectionate. They are great with children, making this dog perfect for seniors with grandchildren. They do require a fair amount of exercise each day, so they will be best suited for active seniors.
