      A few things to note... The Shetland Sheepdog is never solid white. The "Color Headed White" in the Sheltie always has a colored head - for a very good reason. Solid white shelties are usually deaf. The "double merle" or "lethal white" shelties should NEVER be bred as these are usually deaf with vision issues - if not complete blindness.

      Also, the Jack Russell Terrier and it's near cousins are anything BUT easy to train. And carrying one around in a pouch would be - well - very, very funny to see as Jacks are known for bouncing off the walls - literally. And Bull Terriers are NOT small. I'd love to see one of them carried around in a pouch!!! They weigh 50 to 80 pounds!!! And many of the white dogs you listed, including the Bichon Frise, the Shetland Sheepdog and the American Eskimo, are NOT easily groomed with little shedding. I've owned Shelties and Eskies, and they shed like the dickens and require frequent grooming. The Bichon is one breed that requires the highest maintenance grooming wise.

      My advice - do more research on this. The little white dogs are generally considered Maltese (which isn't even on your list), Bichons, Havenese (also not on the list) and Coton de Tulear. :) You've got a good idea for a hub, it just needs some modification and more research. :)
