I have other small animals (goats and chickens) and so I don't really want something with a high drive.

If you are interested in a pure bred, maybe an English Shepherd? A neighbor of my parents have two and they are their all purpose farm dogs - around goats, chickens, ducks, kids, other dogs, and who knows what else. They're great dogs.

They sound interesting, but I can't afford to get one from a breeder and there doesn't appear to be a rescue near me.

I'll probably go with some sort of ACD/JRT/Corgi/Doxie/whatever small/medium mix puppy I can find in a shelter/rescue. I can deal with energy and chewing.

If you want an ACD you should check out Texas cattle dog rescue: http://texascattledogrescue.com/?no_redirect=true

Also there are a few wonderful collie rescues here in Texas, and I for one know that collies are AWESOME dogs, gentle and obedient here are some rescue links:

http://www.texascollierescue.org/
http://www.houstoncollierescue.org/
http://www.dfwcollierescue.org/

Here is one for BC's
http://www.bcrescuetexas.org/

Also if you're not sure and might want a muttley mutt www.petfinder.com is a great place to start, so is www.adoptapet.com you can search by state, city, and breed (most will be mixes tho)

Thank you for the links.

With my past history, it will be "muttley mutt".

I used to be infatuated with doxies and when I had a chance to meet one, I was more interested in a "mystery mutt" that walked by.

Our Lacy was the best dog we ever had, but there is a reason we didn't get another one. Man was he hard to live with as a puppy. As he aged he mellowed out a lot, but he was still a very sharp dog.

You could always look at NESR (National English Shepherd Rescue). Their dogs all go into foster homes and they might have a dog nearby
