Default Just for fun: suggest me a breed!

I'll probably be adding another dog to the household in 2-4 years, and while I have a good idea of the breeds I'd like I thought it'd be cool to see what y'all suggest. I've own many dogs and have bred, shown and handled, so experience isn't an issue.

Here's some info:

7-35lbs

Preferably not a huge shedder

Minimal grooming would be nice, and absolutely NO professional grooming

No dog aggression known in the breed, and gets along well with other dogs

Decent drive, for either food or toys

Biddibility isn't a huge concern, but like mentioned above I'd like good drive

No flat faces

Preferably a healthy breed

Barking isn't an issue since Nola is a Dachshund, but nothing yappy (as in high pitched, make your ears bleed sound)

I'm an active person, so high energy breeds are just fine (I don't think I could take a JRT though!), and I want the dog to be able to be active with me and Nola

Non agressive, but aloofness is okay

Solid tempered, aka not nervy

And go!

Does minimal grooming mean short hair only? Some long haired dogs just need a quick brush out once a week.

I'm not a total expert on all breeds I'm going to suggest, but based on your list:

Border Terriers fit your list pretty dang close.
Icelandic Sheepdog - some may go over your weight, and some can be shy, sheds.
Mittelspitz (sheds)
Field Spaniel - might be a grooming issue
kooikerhondje
hungarian Mudi
Cardigan Corgi?
Whippet
Manchester Terrier


Thats all I can really think of right now.

Border Terrier, Corgi, Whippet and Icelandic Sheepdog were all on the list!

Nope, long hair is fine too. I'm fine with a quick brushing every few days and of course bath and nail trims, but I don't for hours of grooming or professional grooming,

I have an Icie, so if you have any specific questions, feel free to ask! They would fit all of your requirements, but are definitely on the larger side of what you're looking for. Some of the coats, particularly softer/longer, can take a lot of maintenance. Our girl has a medium coat that is very rough and she's basically wash and wear, doesn't really shed except when blowing coat and it's not even that bad then. But I really hope you mean it when you say you don't mind barking

Oh, I mean it. You should hear my Nola (Dachshund) when she gets going! Don't mind vocal either, except whining. That drives me nuts.
