I am searching for the puzzle that contains various people of different nationalities, Swedish, German, English etc. and different cigarettes they smoke, different colored houses they live in and different dogs they own.  I cannot remember what the puzzle is actually looking for, but you have to figure out which person lives in what colored house, smokes what brand of cigarette, owns which dog breed and so forth.  I have the answers to the puzzle but don't have the puzzle itself.  Is this enough information to help find this puzzle?

Who Owns the Zebra is the name of the puzzle. It is a famous elimination puzzle consisting of about 21 clues. The animals are not dog breeds, but undomesticated animals: one is a giraffe, another a zebra, etc. I remember one of the clues was The Norwegian drinks tea. The puzzle ran in either Esquire or Playboy in the mid sixties or seventies.
