|Clancy_Wiggum||I adopted a 7 m/o who is very clearly a working line dog. She has prey drive out the wazoo.

Aggression vs. Prey Drive
Excuse the uneducated question, I really don't have any experience in dog behavior.
As I have been researching more about the breed,because I am interested in obtaining the breed.Prey drive, & aggression commonly mentioned while I research.

There may be obvious answer-But what is the difference between aggression, & prey drive?
When does prey drive(if it ever does), become aggression?
