I wouldn't cross either off completely. If you get from a breeder who is breeding for stable dogs, the dog shouldn't be timid(some dogs personalities are like that though(where they aren't as outgoing), so when you do get in touch with a breeder let them know what it is you want and they'll usually match you with the best pup they have-shelters/rescues can do this too, rescues have more of a chance to get to know a dogs personality more than shelters though). While both Golden's and labs are friendly, they should still be able to do what you want for alerting.

I didn't mean timid as in bad breeding, I meant timid as in he acts all tough until he's confronted, which isn't something I want.

I own a Shih Tzu. Although he is a fantastic companion, his IQ is not rated too high relative to other dogs.

Uhh, We are on the Texas coast. We have those same temps and have thehumidity as well. Lots of prys around here as working dogs guarding goats and cattle and chickens. Have a brother that lives in country outside of Austin and there are three fields of goagts just down the road from him, and each one has 2 pyrs guarding the goats in each one. They live totally outside year round.

Biggest drawback with pyrs is barking. as one pry person said, they let you know in loud voice that an acorn fell on the roof. LOl. Pyr barking on the insdie willscare folks, but when they see one well, they are known to be people magnets. Folks are drawn to tem as we find out every time we take him shopping with us.

Yes, exactly. Balance is key, and I do understand that a lot of this requires training, but what doesn't? All dogs need it and I'm 110% willing to go all out on training.

Default Border Collie

Though I don't have a Border Collie, I used to love one of my neighbor's. This is definitely one of the best pet dog breeds. See this infographic for why.

I have a Doberman. I did not get her as a "guard dog" but know just her breed is enough to stop most people. She is really not interested in other people, will let them pat her but really could not care less if they do. She used to be a little reactive with other dogs but with training, she is good now. She does not noticeably shed as in there is not hair everywhere like from my Bernese cross. Hot or cold temperatures do not seem to bother her. They do take a lot of training but most breeds do and was not hard to train. Does not need excessive exercise, like most dogs, needs to be taught to settle in the house.
