Looking for ideal breed based on following traits

In order of importance:

  • Small - Pref under 20 lbs.
  • Little grooming,
  • low shedding,
  • min. exercise needed,
  • low separation anxiety,
  • easy to train.
  • Doesnt bark a lot.
  • Hypoallergenic and watchdog are also nice to haves.
  • Can tolerate heat/cold.
  • Minimal health issues.

Not about all these criteria, but a few like mi-ki seem to fit most important criteria. Bolonoodle and Cavachon arent bad, but larger and need more exercise.

Norfolk-terrier seems interesting, but requires lots of exercise, and concerned about it tolerating being alone even though a dog encyclopedia says otherwise.

Any advice?

To be honest a Yorkshire terrier would be at the top of the list for you.
The only thing I'm a little confused about is why you want a dog? (Not trying to be rude :) ) there's no dog that is perfect and they all come with issues, it's about overcoming them. I understand the things that you can't change in a dog but you work on things like independence in dogs.
Is this your first dog?
Hope this helped x
