I know myself I have only been around one or two dogs of various breeds. This makes it a little difficult to know if their traits or common or not. For example, my sister-in-law has a Westie which seems very hyper, however maybe that is not typical! Based upon her Westie I would not want one, but there may be many wonderful Westies out there!
You know what's REALLY scary... I just had a comparison video come up in my YouTube feed on Havanese vs Maltese. TELL me that is a coincidence! LOL!
