She will likely be doing sport work (agility, flyball, obedience) with the dog as well but because of her disability doesn't always have the energy levels to work a high drive dog so working lines are out.
She's looking currently for WGSL and maybe even a good white shepherd breeder. She Might consider the right american show dog though in the past neither of us have been impressed with nerves and working drives.
Looking at young adults and puppies at this time.
High ball drive = high prey drive. Don't think you have a clear understanding of drives
