Xena is a Cattle Dog mix that came to the ACL from a rural shelter in the South. She's a very affectionate gal, but true to the nature of her breed, she's also very smart and active. We anticipate that she will need approximately an hour or two of running and hard playing exercise per day.
Xena loves working with her person and would make a great agility or obedience dog. That said, with some time and energy, Xena is sure to become an awesome family dog. Because of her bounciness and herding behaviors, Xena would be best in a home with children over 10 years old.
Xena is not completely housebroken yet, though she has been in a foster home for a few weeks and has had very few accidents. Xena gets along with other dogs but does come across pretty dominant initially. Experience with the breed is a plus.
