Personality: 
The Xolo is cheerful, attentive, intelligent, and alert-a great companion and watchdog.

He has been described as a big dog in a small body, and he is no pushover, occasionally showing a stubborn streak. He needs your direction and fair leadership to understand his role in the family.

Welsh Terrier

Short title: 
welsh terrier

Welsh Terriers are easygoing and they like lots of exercise. They're fast chasers - keep them on a leash or in a fenced-in yard whenever they're outside. These charming little dogs usually get along well with other pets and considerate children.

Welsh Terriers are part of the Terrier group. In general, terriers have a very distinctive personality that's unlike any other breed. They're feisty and energetic. Originally bred to hunt and kill vermin, terriers love the chase - don't let your terrier off its leash unless it's in an enclosed area.

Personality: 
The Welsh Terrier's compact, sturdy exterior hides a genuinely affable dog who relishes time spent with his nearest and dearest. Curious and fairly calm, his standard describes him as showing self-control, and this is evident in his demeanor. However, the Welsh Terrier is still all terrier and does have a terrier's natural drive and protectiveness. For this reason, he makes a great watchdog - and a dog for whom socialization from puppyhood is necessary so that he can feel confident, not threatened, by different kinds of people, places and things.

West Highland White Terrier

Short title:

Personality: 
The West Highland White Terrier is hardy, devoted, and happy-go-lucky, exhibiting typical terrier tendencies - sturdiness, a no-nonsense attitude, loyalty, tenacity and independence. But this dog is not as volatile as some of the others in his group. In fact, the Westie standard warns against excessive pugnacity (having a combative personality). Inclement weather is no deterrent to his energetic personality, and he makes a fine family pet.

Effusively affectionate with his family and those he knows, the Weimaraner can be aloof and territorial with strangers.

Personality: 
Tibetan Spaniels ("Tibbies" to their fanciers) are made for companionship. Affectionate and adoring of their owners, they are eager to please. These intelligent and playful dogs wish to be the center of attention at all times. Naturally suspicious of strangers, they warm up slowly to nonfamily members.
