Dante is a Cattle Dog/Kelpie cross and has the traits of both breeds. He is a dog that is very loyal and protective of his owner. Dante is bilingual and understands commands in Spanish and English.
Dante would do the best with someone who has experience with the cattle dog breed and might not be the right dog for a first time dog owner or someone who does not do many outdoor activities. He is highly intelligent and learns very quickly. While at the vet getting his checkup, Dante rummaged through his foster moms purse, pulled out the car keys and went to the front door and set them down. He loves riding in the front seat in the car going for a ride anywhere his foster parents invite him along. He is an excellent work out partner and enjoys going jogging and running alongside his foster Mom as she rides her bike. He is not a dog that likes being confined to a crate but his foster home has found he can be trusted alone at home.
If a dog could be considered a genius then Dante would be that dog. He would excel at Agility or might be a good candidate for a service dog as he learns so quickly and is extremely focused on his work.
