OK, didn't see this information anywhere on this board, but if it's on the wrong part of the forum or if it's a repeat, I'm sorry (again)

What exact (and I do mean eact) type of dog is Milou? If that exists, of course. Race, I mean. The exact name of it, type, whatever information you can give about it.
I just wanna see a real life one, if they do exist (and I know little or next to nothing about dog races and types)

Milou/Snowy is a fox terrier.

But you're right!!! Ah, but I've never seen an entirely white one...

Doesn't look entirely white (or is it just dirty...?)

There are pictures of people's fox terriers on the net who were called Milou.

If i ever wanted a dog I'd get a fox terrier and call it snowy, but I really don't like dogs.

Actually Snowy is a West Highland White Terrier. The main features (you can see them on snowy too) are - white coat, erect ears, bright dark deep-set eyes.

Its common people say Snowy is a fox terrier but to put it accurate Snowy is a West Highland White Terrier. This breed originated mainly from Scotland. A lot of behaviour of Westies match with Snowy i.e. they snap when irritated, love to dig, chase a cat for fun but wont hurt it, etc. Westies live for usually 16 years or sometimes more.

The last one of those 4 pictures is pretty much how I always imagined Snowy-it's as close as I've ever seen a real picture to the image in my head.

Speaking as a Scot, I’d say that a westie is too small and fluffy to be the model for Snowy - Snowy is drawn as wire haired, and with a square snout, which makes the assertion that he is a fox terrier more likely.
