Bandit first lived with his brother, Woofy, in the home of a very experienced foster Mom. We think that he is a mix of Australian cattle dog and shepherd, so he is very smart. He is a medium sized pup and weighs about 40 pounds. Both he and his brother used the doggy door and basically housetrained themselves from the beginning! Bandit has a soft, medium length coat with beautiful markings. He loves to play with balls, but is not returning them to you yet! He acts more dominant than his brother, but it seems to be because he lacks confidence more than that he has an alpha personality. He will do best with other dogs that are his size or larger and would benefit from living with a well trained dog as he will follow his or her lead. Bandit was good with the resident cat and walks well on a leash. He has been around a dog savvy 4 year old boy, but tends to be timid with new people and new dogs and wants to bark at them. He will need a very patient owner who is willing to introduce him slowly to new people and especially new dogs. Bandit is strikingly handsome and would be best with an experienced dog person who is willing to work with him to keep him well socialized and developing into the best dog he can be. Bandit is currently being fostered in an apartment where he is the only dog so he is getting lots of training and attention.
