We have narrowed it down between:
A chihuahua, an italian greyhound, and a papillon.
We have done extensive research on all three breeds. We know that chihuahuas and papillons can be yappy and that italian greyhounds can be difficult to housebreak, but also know that both can be overcome with the proper socialization and training.
We live in an apartment, however it is on the first floor with a walkout patio. We do live in a location with cold winters.
We are not enthusiastic about paper training/litter box training and would prefer to do the outside method. However, we are open to it.
What would you reccomend?
