* In Creator/KurtBusiek's ''ComicBook/{{Arrowsmith}}'' (WorldWarI [[RecycledInSpace in a world governed by magic]]) soldiers bond with small "dragonets" by means of a [[AppliedPhlebotinum rare mystical metal]]. This bond allows the soldiers to fly with their dragonets perched on their arms like hunting falcons.

* Pseudodragons and Faerie Dragons also appear in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' and the bestiary specifically notes that Pseudodragons (who have human level intelligence) are smart enough that some consider 'owning' them tantamount to slavery.

Negotiating a partnership with one is totally fine, and indeed many higher-level wizards or sorcerers can gain Pseudodragons(and Faerie Dragons too) as familiars.
** A large number of Pseudodragons lived where the city of Korvosa would be built, and afterwards moved right back in. In time they developed a strong rivalry with the feral Imps that would often escape from the Infernal-leaning local WizardingSchool, a rivalry that occasionally erupts into epic(if tiny) battles in the skies above the city.



** Faerie dragons, though technically [[TheFairFolk fey]], still qualify somewhat. They're not true dragons, but resemble them to some degree. They also resemble moths and geckos, though their size can range from being as small as your hand to as large as a [[CanineCompanion working-class dog]].

The larger ones first appeared as units for the Night Elf faction in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III's'' ExpansionPack.

* Every animated incarnation of ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' has featured a baby dragon named Spike, though each has been a distinct character. In G1 he was pink and green, voiced by Creator/CharlieAdler, and had a FaceHeelTurn after serving as a bumbling minion to the villain Tirac. In G3, he was bluish-purple and orange, voiced by Creator/BrianDrummond, and was found in a cave and [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld awakened from his 1000-year nap]]. In G4, he is purple and green, voiced by Creator/CathyWeseluck, was hatched by Twilight Sparkle as part of her MagicSchool entrance exam, and now serves as her ward and assistant.

As far as we can tell, the UrExample of this trope is found in Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin's 1968 novel ''Literature/AWizardOfEarthsea'', in which tiny "dragon-lizards" that can be tamed as pets appear briefly. The TropeMaker, though, is probably ''[[Literature/DragonridersOfPern Dragonquest]]'' by AnneMcCaffrey, published three years later, in which the Shoulder-Sized Dragons play a much bigger role.

Why? Well, when it comes to BadassAdorable [[NonHumanSidekick Non-Human Sidekicks]], it [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons doesn't get much better]] than a [[FunSize pint-sized]] version of [[Literature/TheHobbit Smaug]]. In any work where these creatures exist, one of them will be kept by a major character as a [[CoolPet pet]], {{Familiar}} or BondCreature. The trope name comes from the fact that they are almost invariably found perching on their human companion's shoulder in the ParrotPetPosition. When sharing a universe with {{Dragon Rider}}s, these guys can even be depicted as InstantMessengerPigeons.
