Do a google search of Coton de Tulear. It is in the bichon family. They are wonderful dogs and don't shed either. A close friend of mine has one. They don't really bark- they only sort of "chirp". They are beautiful dogs and very smart too. We own a toy fox terrier and she is pretty good about barking - but not all are- and male terriers in general bark more than females. Our little girl only barks when people come to the door or she is really excited while playing. We have worked VERY hard though to mitigate barking with her and she has been trained to understand us saying "that's enough" and then she stops. It's important to remember that dogs who bark, bark for many reasons. When dogs bark at someone at the door or noises outside, they are doing what they are instinctively programmed to do- it's their job to protect and alert you. You can work on that with them though. Then there are dogs who don't get enough attention and bark because they are under stress and lonely. Hope this helps.
