From reading your desired traits, I wouldn't get a Toller if I were you. Terriers do seem like the may be a good fit, but I don't know enough about them to tell you which would be best.

I think http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/ is one of the sites with a quiz that can help you find the dog for you.

Being friendly towards other dogs/people is not really a breed-specific trait as much as a well-socialized dog of any breed/mix trait. Same with dominance/independence (not sure exactly what you mean by that one...)

Good luck with your search! How exciting

westie
not as much energy compared to other breeds
will sit still lol
cuddly
needs baths often (white)
longer fur, sheds buckets
good with people
good with other dogs if properly socialized
can be nippy
will tire quick

My favorite breed is the chiuaua (it's SO hard to spell).
One thing I forgot to add about basenji's is that they don't bark because they can't bark. They do make other noises though.
