I'm applying to adopt a small dog from the local pound and I'm noticing most of the descriptions say "I am skittish and need a calm, quiet home!" I've never had a small dog before and the research I've been doing on some of these breeds (Chi mixes and Terrier mixes mostly) isn't turning up anything. I don't throw parties or have a lot of people over but I don't want the dog to have a heart attack if I want to play some loud music and dance around or at least have a few people over once in awhile. 

Are all small dogs really skittish or is this either a shelter volunteer being lazy and copy/pasting the descriptions or is this just an appropriate reaction to a dog being dumped in a loud dog pound?
