Default Breed Suggestions

Not anytime soon, but being now hooked to agility has made me think about the possibility of other breeds. I LOVE my Finkies, but they are not really all about that kind of thing usually (Kimma is an exception, unfortunately).

So here are some things I would like in a dog:
- Drivey, but not ridiculously so
- I love my independent dogs, but I would like a dog that also wants to please. So basically take my Finkies and make them more biddable
- I don't mind grooming, but I prefer a more wash and wear coat. The need for professional grooming wouldn't be a turn off, but ideally it would be something I could just do and maintain by myself. Shedding doesn't bug me, but due to my allergies, I seem to do better with longer-haired breeds
- Between 10-60 lbs
- Aloof with strangers
- I enjoy having a rare breed, so I wouldn't mind keeping that trend going
- Not DA or SSA
- Doesn't have to be particularly cuddly or velcro
- Noise doesn't bother me (obviously LOL)
- Medium-high energy, as this dog would mainly (hopefully) be used for agility

Thanks in advance
