Default Adoption question

This looks like a informative group. I wish to adopt a dog. I want a dog
for companionship and one that would alert me when someone approaches
the front door. Very few other demands: medium size any breed or
mixture. doesn't have to be cute or pretty. any sex or age.

I have one requirement . The dog must be smart. In the past I have had a
dog that was not so smart and another that was semi intelligent. I want
my next animal to be intelligent.

When adopting a child It would be out of line to request a smart kid.
When adopting a dog would this demand be wrong or offensive? I contacted
a rescue shelter here in Phoenix and got a cold shoulder. I got the
feeling it was because of my request for a smart dog. Could I get some
input from the group on this before I go any futher? Sorry to be so long
a post.
