well i have a snow shoe, she isn't talkative that much only when she wants something but then again none of my siamese were talkative unless they wanted something. i think as long as you get a cat young it would be fine with a dog.. my girl lives with 2 dogs and she does cry to get there attention n then she does tell them when to back off. she about 5 now and grew up with an older dog and now she dealing with 2 dogs both under 2 years old. She at times swats at them and growls but has never used her claws on either of them.
But i found mine does drool like a dog when she is overly happy.
