In particular, the attributes of cats that appeal to me are their small size, lack of strong smells, quietness, tendency to shed less, small appetite, cleanliness, and calm temperament.
By contrast, dogs strike me as large, smelly, loud, hairy, hungry, dirty, and jumpy.
So, what dog breeds are the most 'cat-like'?
A few additional details: we won't be getting dogs for a long while yet; we'll probably get two dogs but only one ('mine') has to be cat-like; we'll only get dogs if we're living somewhere with ample space for running around (>1 acre of open space).
