My Border Collie though was something else.
I watched a show where they said the herding instinct kept inthe Border Collie was close to the hunting instinct of the Wolf. Judging from the "gifts" my dog left in the front yard I believe that entirely. I actually watched it stalk chipmunks. It never caught one, but those buggers are faster than lightning. The dog did bring home mice, moles and even Birds. Cost my mom $50 when it brought home the Killer Rooster that was in my Grandads barn. (HE rented it out)
Very active dogs and need a lot of exercise, but I would get one again in a heartbeat if I had the right situatution.
German Sheppards are also good. And you really can't go wrong with a Mutt. They tend to have wide personalities.
My dog is part border Collie part husky and all the time she is catching animals. Must be at least a dozen birds, a half dozen rabbits and a couple moles. Never seen her get a chipmunk or squirrel but they are in our backyard all the time so it wouldn't surprise me if she has but we just didn't see her do it.
Even in her old age she is catching stuff. She is 11 or 12 now and in the last 1-2 years she must have caught 3 rabbits and 2 birds.
PS: If you ever wanted to know what a rabbit in pain sounds like, it is a very long, loud high pitched squeal.
