Unfortunately, the size of your dog is important when deciding if you can bring him in-cabin with you. Airlines have strict regulations when it comes to the size of pet carriers. They must be able to fit underneath the seat in front of you (therapy or service dogs are an exception).
Typically dogs around 15 pounds or less can fit comfortably in the mandated size of the airline-approved pet carrier.

Airline passengers flying with a pet have three options (depending on the size and demeanor of their air companion), but no matter how animals fly they'll need to be in the appropriate carrier. While individual airlines have varying regulations, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) have set minimum requirements. Most major airlines employ pet transportation specialists who can answer questions and assist passengers.Some airlines allow small pets in the cabin of the plane, if they're in a carry-on kennel or approved carrier that fits under a passenger seat; standard carry-on baggage restrictions must be followed. Usually, these flights need to be less than six hours. Animals other than dogs or cats may not be allowed--airlines have very specific regulations--and odor or noise disturbance can get a pet and passenger removed from the plane before take-off. Pets must remain in their carrying case for the duration of the flight. Most airlines allow one pet per passenger and two pets per cabin, though American Airlines allows two per passenger and seven per flight, so again, be sure to check individual rules. The maximum size for cabin pet carriers on American Airlines is 19 inches long by 13 inches wide and 9 inches high. Soft-sided pet carriers made of water-repellent, padded nylon with mesh ventilation on two or more sides may exceed size limits slightly because they are collapsible, but animals must still be able to stand up, turn around and lie down naturally. Pet kennels are counted as a passenger's carry-on bag or personal item, and a cabin pet charge is added the cost of the plane ticket.The Sleepypod Air offers an innovative solution to the many conflicting airline size restrictions put on pet carriers by providing size versatility through flexibility.
