I adopted this maremma sheep dog from a shelter, this dog is totally house-broke at 10 wks old. Is this how smart this breed is? wow? I have a lot of property in florida, he stays in the house where it's cool due to me not owning anything livestock. Is the breed that smart?

Yes the maremma sheep dog is a smart breed, but it is also a breed that will listen when it wants to. I breed them and I have had people buy more than one from me, just cause they didn't need to house break the 8 week old puppy. Make sure you be very consistent in your training, especially thru adolence. If you did adopt the puppy from a shelter, it is highly likely that it is not a purebred, but it is hard to tell. Good luck with your pup, it is a breed that changed my life.
