This may sound really strange to some people, but I think a Lab would fit what you're looking for. Yes, even the "alerting to strange things" part. My first Lab was one of the best watch dogs I've ever known. He naturally picked up on who/what was OK and who/what wasn't. Well, except for the hunter that arrived at our house at 4AM (I grew up on a farm. We rented rooms out during hunting season, and the other guys had arrived the afternoon before). But, once my father let him know that person was supposed to be there, all was good. The Labs I've had since then have been almost the same (not quite as intense as my first).

Any dog will need to be taught not to things/critters. It's natural for dogs to chase anything that runs.
