    What is the best breed to have that are the most aggressive to possibly attack moles, mice & squirrels ? I've heard that Dominique's are good for it but haven't confirmed it with anyone with experiences. thanks

    buckeyes are known for eating mice, so maybe a good candidate

    My Javas always peck at and chase my dog (a cockapoo), I don't know if it's a breed thing, or if they are just exceptionally spunky. lol

    Our Barred Rocks have been attacking squirrels and definitely blinded one squirrel.

    Buckeye, or maybe Dark Cornish?
