weight/height: Prefer 25lbs or smaller/18" tall or less

Do not want a breed that is prone to DA or HA. I can handle a little DR, but not preferable if I can avoid it.

I want a dog that is loyal, affectionate but also content to lie around on lazy days and not harrass me to go outside every ten minutes.

I don't want a dog that is too soft, but not too hard either... make sense? I like a good middle ground temperament and don't want a dog that is going to completely shut down if I raise my voice slightly ever.

I like herding breeds and sighthound breeds a lot...

One breed which immediately comes to mind
is the Schapendoes (Dutch Sheepdog).

Except that the coat is, perhaps, a bit on the long side,
I would say they would fall perfectly into
each and every one of your "wants"

Two pleasant surprises we had with these little fellows were:
- how relaxed and content they are indoors, and
- how few hairs they left on me ... and this,
even after lazing in my lap for over a half hour.

Very bright, very engaging, lovely little dogs!!!
