Exclamation Dog Breeds.... Confused!

I took 4 dfferent breed selector tests things and I got so many results from all of them. I'm gonna post my results from each one and yall tell me what you think and what you can tell me about any breed you've had from experience. I took these tests to see what breeds I would be good with since I know I want a dog but not sure what kind cause I like many different breeds cause they have many different traits I like.
So here it goes.... and yes this post will be long. Sorry.

SelectSmart
1- Lab
2- Golden Retriever
3- French Bulldog
4- Border Terrier
5- English Cocker Spaniel
6- Whippet
7- Beagle
8- Brittany Spaniel
9- Tibetian Terrier
10- Pembroke Welsh Corgi

Animal Planet
1- American Water Spaniel
2- Standard Dachshund
3- Mini Dacshund
4- Finnish Spitz
5- German Wirehaired Pointer
6- Shiba Inu
7- Standard Schnauzer
8- Sussex Spaniel
9- Australian Terrier
10- Dalmation

BreederRetriever
1- English Pointer
2- Field Spaniel
3- Toller
4- English Setter
5- Pembroke Welsh Corgi
6- English Springer Spainel
7- Dalmation
8- Lab
9- Canaan Dog
10- Bearded Collie

5Star Dog
1- Pembroke Welsh Corgi
2- Sussex Spaniel
3- Pointer
4- RedBone Coonhound
5- Canaan Dog
6- Whippet
7- Kai Ken (I have NO idea what kind of dog this is)
8- Cardigan Welsh Corgi
9- Chessie
10- Welsh Springer Spaniel

Ok finished. And as yall can see I have a few selectors that had the same breeds like; Pembroke Corgi, Dalmation, Whippet, and many spaniels.

So yall help out and lets discuss.

lol all that showed me is that those dog selector things are crap assuming you had the same criteria every time.

I know Dekka.
Its just weird how I got SOOOO many different results when I was very honest with my answers.
Dekka- is it true that JRTs are hyper, "bouncy" dogs?

Those are fun to take, but take them with a grain of salt. I think they're fine to use to get some ideas, but you should really research after that. Many selectors just give me breeds that I'd never really consider. The one on animal planet is decent as is the k9 country one....

What exactly do you want in a dog?

Well i want a small to meduim dog (full grown, 15-50/60 lbs), short-long hair, not a really stubborn dog to train but one thats also easy to train, friendly with other dogs and animals, meduim-high energy but not hyperactive, i dont really care if the dog is used for protection or watchdog but it would be nice to have, somewhat affectionate (not to low key but not jumping on you all the time). Ask me anything to help.

Depends on the JRT. Dekka is a very laid back dog around the house, but very drivey. Zo on the other hand is over the top crazy at times.

None of my JRTs are hyper in the house, none get tonnes of excersize. BUT I think it has to do with training, breeding, and environment, because some JRTs are very hyper.

Yup, Kona is a JRT mix. You can tell sometimes that she has JRT... she can go from lying on the couch sleeping to "WHOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO Someone's here!!1"

I'd say they are useful IF the same breed keeps popping up in the top 5. Although I ended up getting a mix, the breeds that keep popping up for me are ones I'll consider in the future: Cardigan Corgi, Keeshund, and Clumber Spaniel.

However, if the spread looks random, it probably means that nothing suits your requirements . . . or pretty much everything does.
