I couldn't handle the grooming but I do really like poodles. I'd keep exploring that option if I were you, they're really very smart, very stable dogs if you can find a well bred one.

My boss has a Standard and that dog is wicked smart and super ball driven! She is a smaller standard too, probably mature at like 50 lbs. tops.

I presonslly would go JRT or Kerry Blue myself. But the Kerry Blue may be bigger and more terrier than you're looking for.
If a kerry blue is too much terrier, then a JRT would be way too much.

LOL I still say the right JRT I think chaz needs more jackatude!

Schipperke? There's one in my agility class and she's a sassy little devil but focuses in well and learns quickly, really fast too!

JRT and Staffy and Rat Terriers came to mind. But Terrier remains the issue for all three. Not all Terriers want to eat kitties...but every dog i have ever had will go after any cat or small animal in the backyard...

The majority of the poodles I know aren't very drivey, but I know if you went to the right breed you could probably find one.

Mini pinscher or manchester terrier comes to mind...more toy than terrier but still with drive, they might be a little more fragile than you want, though. If you do consider terriers, I'd look into patterdales.

I don't know....I think your best bet would be looking for a little rescue mutt. Most of the small breeds I think of when I think "drivey" are terriers.

It's hard to guess about the potential driveyness or size of random mixes breeds when looking at puppies. If mixed breed is an option, I think a sport mix would be a better bet.

I personally would never trust a highly prey driven sighthound with cats. Indoors many can be fine with cats but outdoors is a different story.
