A good choice could be the “Proplan for small and dwarf dogs”. The increased protein content will give the opportunity to fully grow and develop your pet. Dwarf dogs eat a little, so you can safely buy the best premium food. It is very important from childhood to teach your dog to healthy food. Having become accustomed to eat fat pruning or chicken legs, she, even dying from hunger, will not touch any other food. That is why you need to immediately think out the feeding scheme and follow it.
