I just wanted to see if it was possible to get maltese as #1... I found out you can tie.

so maltese was #1 and Mixed was #2 but both at 100%...followed by bichon frise at 81%


But...when I'm honest...lol... I get 1. Mixed Breed, 2. Maltese (81%)

My top 10:
1. Mixed Breed (100%)
2. Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever (84%) - This I am considering for my next pup
3. Polish Lowland Sheepdog (75%)
4. Sussex Spaniel (73%)
5. American Eskimo - Standard (71%)
6. Brittany Spaniel (69%) - Another I am considering :)
7. German Pinscher (68%)
8. American Water Spaniel (66%)
9. English Cocker Spaniel (65%)

When I run it for my top considerations when I chose a Maltese I get them at #4 with 76%, just under a Mixed, Poodle and Bichon. I'm so glad that I had certain criteria when I got my malt(s)! I'd be lost without them. :wub:

If no purebred in our database matches all your criteria, consider a mutt. Perhaps a mix of these top breeds on your list.

All the Poodles and Bichon are up there because I chose *curly hair* as the hair option :p Before I met Yeager, I was considering Bichons and Poodles, but I didn't meet the right Bichon before I found Yeager, and for some reason all the people around me were strongly against poodles :blink: they look too high maintenance haha

Here's my top 10


1. Mixed breed

2. Maltese (81%) :wub:

3. Bichon Frise (71%)

4. Lhasa Apso (61%)

5. Toy Poodle (61%) :blink:

6. Yorkie (61%)

7. Miniature Schnauzer (60%)

8. Standard Poodle (60%) :blink:

9. Pomeranian (58%)

10. Italian Greyhound (57%)


Can't figure out how the poodles, bichon, and schnauzer got in there before the yorkie and pom. I preferred long straight hair. The poodles are definitely a no for me since i don't particularly care for them especially the standard poodles. I showed my son the list and he laughed because he knows how much i like poodles. Lol.

The name is normally shortened to Xolo (pron. Zolo). They think this might be where the Chinese Crested comes from. I did some research on them, but it turns out they're really not great with other pets/strangers. And, being a 'primitive' breed, they have a bit of a temper and are quite self-sufficient. I really wanted a friendly/fairly easy to handle dog, so I pretty much stopped my research there!

My results (I don't have any overwhelming winners. I really didn't have a preference for coat type or length or a few other things, though, so that probably didn't help narrow anything down at all..

1. Mixed breed (100%)
2. Bichon Frise (76%)
3. French Bulldog (67%)
4. Whippet (66%)
5. Lowchen (65%)
6. Havanese (65%)
7. Tibetan spaniel (64%)
8. Wire fox terrier (64%)
9. Poodle (miniature) (63%)
10. Poodle (toy) (63%)
11. Maltese (62%)

Very interesting! I considered a lot of these breeds when I was looking. Frankly, I wasn't too thrilled at the prospect of all the work involved with Maltese coats, but wanted to make the trade off so I would have a smart, loving, bubbly little lap dog. Now, I'm so attached to her coat, I don't know if I can bear to cut it!

They sure require plenty of training, socialization ...etc at a young age.

I am sure they can be as sweet as (or even sweeter than) a well trained pit bull


I don't think I will ever own one of these two breeds. I have other breeds in my top list (considering temperament and look wise); only 4 of them came out in this specific quiz result.

Interesting because I chose soft dog. Great with pets and strangers...friendly. So why on earth would that kind of dog come up on my results?? Thats like the complete opposite!

Same with me. I didn't even tick on aggressive, biter, hunter dog. I chose tolerate pets and stranger (friendly). After completing this breed selector quiz, you get the chance to rate it. I gave it 2 stars (since it was correct in choosing 4 of my actual top breed list) and found out that the quiz has a total of 3 stars out of 5 stars. 9368 people voted for it


I don't think *new to dog breeds* people should rely on this specific breed selector quiz before getting their first pup.
