Kudos for you for looking into rescues! I think a Border Collie would be a nice fit!

A greyhound is not a hyper dog. To be honest, I also though Vizsla. They are fantastic!

I know someone with a greyhound and it is a couch potato and not at all hyper or all that active. Could lay around all day. I always thought they were very active dogs till she told me about hers.

Greys are pretty chilled out dogs. They've earned the nickname "fastest couch potatos in the world," for a reason, LOL. If you're looking for a really energetic, "hyper" dog, then a retired racing grey may not be the best match. Of course, this doesn't mean that they won't be thrilled to join you for some exercise, just that while they're at home, they're quite content to relax.

A Boxer sounds like a good fit.

Smooth Collies fit the basic description, but there are a few drawbacks. They shed a lot and bark even more! I have them, and don't care about these things, but many people do and need to be aware. They are a challenge to train, not because they are stubborn, but because you must vary your methods. You cannot train a Collie by rote - no walking in circles, repeating the same thing over and over. You've really got to be on your toes or they will take over the house (in a nice way - aggression isn't an issue).

If you do decide that you are interested in the breed, PM me and I'll give you the long drawnout info.
