Default Small dog breeds

So as much as I hate it I dont think bringing a huge or large dog into my home would be a good idea right now, with all the traveling we do ect ect..

So I am looking into smaller to medium-ish sized dogs for the future hopefully if Tyler allows me to have a third dog..Im working on that lol

now what I am looking for?
-outgoing, spunky, sassy, smart and tons of humour
-friendly, but some what aloof with strangers.
-peferably breeds with no sound sensativity.
-able to keep up with hiking and out door adventures.
-active, but able to settle in the house.
-biddable, but still challenge
-drive, prey drive, toy drive.
-I would pefer lower shedding, but I guess I would deal with it for the right breed.

I have a patterdale mix at my work right now which I love. Also rat terriers, the standard sizes, are amazing dogs.

Why not another westie?

I was going to suggest another Westie...

Border Terrier? Silky Terrier? Many small terriers would fit that.

But for a non-terrier, a Papillon would probably fit too (though not too sure on their prey drive).

Cali fits all that criteria to a tee.. minus the "somewhat aloof to strangers part". If she sees anybody and they come approach her, she'll roll right over and wiggle on the ground and just soak about the loving. I don't think she's met anyone, two legged or four legged, that she hasn't liked.

As for prey drive, she has a lot of it. She saw a squirrel about two months ago in someone's yard, and she still gets excited when she walks by and tries running to the tree. She also thoroughly enjoys chasing anything moving and once followed an ant through grass for a good ten minutes.

The two and a half year old papillon. Crazy. Social butterfly. Clever.

I kind of like the idea of a Manchester terrier. Have you ever considered one of these?
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Thomas Jefferson
