I know they aren't as high drive as say a border collie or ACD but are they easily motivated?

I think if I ever were to bite the bullet and do it, I'd probably look for an adult..just given what I look for.
I can't speak from personal experience, but I've heard drive depends on the line. If I get one, it will probably be from on of the links posted so far (or similar.) Karbits breeds drivey dogs, and the breeders that are going for hunting lines will be pretty driven. I can't say more than that, though.
