My Newf has a low prey drive...except for snakes, she loves the chase those! I have many pics of Ebony with my cats, rabbit and ducklings, but I have been told by other Newf owners that they could never get pics like that with their Newf. Obviously there is a huge genetic component to prey drive, but I wonder about how exposure to prey effects the drive. Ebony was surrounded by all my other critters the day she came home and maybe other Newfs could be like her if they had the same exposure. ??? Just a thought.
For the most part though, Newfs are gentle with all things.

Tosca has low prey drive but I suspect it's because she was raised with multiple cats.(?) She herds though. Does anybody know if Collies in general are high prey drive?

Leonberger, hands down. Not popular enough to have been ruined yet, and great with kids, too.

You know he's on the level.

Ive seen quite a few Leos and shown then as well and they are very hyper.
One attacked a pit bull yes the Pit was the victim.
2 at the last show were more guardy inside then my own breed.

It may be because they are so inbred dont know.

But if choosing one it would be best to visit the breeder and see if the parents and or grandparents have the temperament someone is looking for.

They should be great with kids but I think a Newfie may be better.

All 6 ACD's allow my ferrets to torture them. I have not had a ferret hurt yet. They are turned loose daily for exercise and the dogs do not bother them at all nor do my son's dogs when they are here. When I go to catch the little buggers the dogs help me by rounding them up but they were never taught to leave them play they just did. ACD's are herders.

My Berner is kind to our cat, just wants to be friends with the ducks along the canal, barely notices the squirels in the yard, and is only mildly interested to see where the chipmonks dart off to.
