Default Socially confident breeds

In your experience, what breeds generally seem to be socially confident in nature and lack a predisposition to DA?

Labs, "doodle"-anythings, and pugs.

Socially confident and lacking DA... Socially confident should be the APBT, but part of that confidence is scrappiness with other dogs.

I've found that a lot of Boxers are socially confident as well. At least in the sense that they're outgoing. Excitable and wiggly, but totally confident that you're there to give them luvs. There isn't a complete lack of DA, but more a chance they'll get along with other dogs than with the first response. LOL!

Yes, I have found that with Staffords. A breed which I LOVE.

Sorry to be dense Sael, but are you talking Smooth/rough collies? Or any 'collies'? Thanks for your suggestions everyone. I thought Lab might get a mention.

On the doodle bit, how are poodles? I have actually never met a standard poodle in person. It seems like people are more likely to own mixes than purebreds.

Smooth and rough both. I don't have any experience with other collie types, aside from fearful BYB border collies at the clinic.

In my experience, boxers tend to be DA/DR. Socially confident with people, yes, but jerks with other dogs.

Goldens are supposed to be confident dogs; it's even in the breed standard.

It's something (among dozens more, lol) I prioritized when selecting a breeder.
