Blade is a 6 month old Australian Cattledog/Australian shepherd mix. He is a mellow and very sweet boy. He will make a nice, laid back family companion. He is becoming more and more playful. He gets along with my dog, although a little possessive with his toys/food around her, but it's only with the dog, he has no problem if I put my hand in his bowl or grab his toy from him. Really good temperament, does really well with the kids but can occasionally get excited & knock them down, we're working on that. No issues with the cats either, he doesn't chase or bother them, one cat likes to rub on him & he is fine with it, he stays away from the not so dog friendly cat. He did well yesterday when we had guests over,greeted everyone & was happy getting attention, didn't mind the fireworks. We have not had any accidents in the house. He is not kennel/crate trained, he will whine,bark,howl in there. I do crate him when I leave the house but at night he just sleeps on the floor in our room so he doesn't keep everyone up. Like all puppies he needs a little work on manners but otherwise he's a great little guy!
