Bichon Frise: Falls in the "Non-sporting" Catagory. Bichon ( bee-shawn) small white dog. Frise (free-say) means curly haired. They are similar to the poodle ( but don't mistake them for one as they well be greatly offended.) Their long hair is like a powder puff. They weigh 10-15lbs, and around 12 inches tall.
Temperment: This breed loves human company yet has a strong independent spirit. They are happy, friendly and lively and will enjoy as much exercise as their owner.
Maltese: Falls in the "Toy" Catagory. They come from the island of Malta, hence the name Maltese. They can weigh from 4-6 lbs, the toy Maltese, or can be a little larger 7-10lbs. This is the size Maltese I breed. I think the larger size makes a better family dog. The toy Maltese can be a little fragile for small children. Some people prefer this size but they are usually adults w/o children. They are usually 8-10 inches tall.
Temperment: Loving and loyal as well as tough. Makes a good watchdog. Our Maltese is great with kids and a wonderful part of our family.
West Highland Terrier:Falls in the "Terrier" catagory. The Westie is considered of one the most attractive of the Scottish terriers. The Westie is a hardy, tenacious dog. They were bred to hunt. They have a straight outter coat covering a short undercoat. They are about 11 inches tall and can weight 15-22lbs.
Maltichon: The most popular designer dog. This combination of the Maltese and Bichon Frise is a great little dog sharing the personality of the Bichon and Maltese. They can range in size from 8 to 13 lbs. They are hypoallergenic and do not shed, which is one reason they are so popular.
Wee- Chon: A mix between the West Highland Terrier and the Bichon Frise. The puppies can have like the Bichon, or the Westie. Ears seem to be dominate, as so far most of the pups have had the Westie ears. Some people feel they have the best world of these two breeds. Westies do have an undercoat and are not hypoallergenic the the Bichon doesn't shed and is hypoallergenic. Depending on the hair that the puppy has there should be little to no shedding.

YORKSHIRE TERRIER: Also falls under the "Terrier" catagory and can also fall in the "Toy" catagory. The origin assumed to be England. The breed as gotten smaller over the years thru selective breeding. Yorkies are a spirited dog who is not intimidated by larger dogs or house intruders, making a good guard dog as well as a loving pet. The coat is long, straight and silky. Height around 7-9 inches, Weight 7lbs. (can vary from 5-11lbs). Teacup Yorkies (under 4lbs)are cute, but they have a lot of health problems and they can not be used for breeding).
Dachshund: Dachshunds are interesting little dogs that have a lot of personality. They are loyal dogs with a nice long lifespan. The breed is not particularly active but enjoys walks and play time. Although they can be somewhat stubborn, generally they are gentle dogs and not extremely aggressive.
