Although she is not a pure breed, my "tibalier" is a good representation of a mix of two breeds that I am familiar with raising. The tibalier has long hair that can occasionally get matts behind the ears. They are definitely companion dogs and like to be with their human family as much as possible. They shed quite a bit, but their hair is easy to clean and oftentimes they like water and baths. They are generally small, mine stayed around the 10 lb mark, but can get to be up to 15 lb. They will bark to alert you, but otherwise they reserve barking. They are very happy and playful, but they are prone to separation anxiety if not introduced to being alone gradually. All in all they are a wonderful small dog that is easily trained and very attached to their human companions.
