Active, playful, good with other dogs and kids plus loyal and super affectionate.
Zulu truly has a beautiful , warm temperament and will make a wonderful addition as long as his new family can reciprocate the affection with loads of cuddles and pats.
Zulu likes to meet and play with other dogs but can be a little wary initially. He will generally approach cautiously with his tail wagging - once friendships are made he will run around with other dogs and play.
Zulu's favourite things include running, playing with children and other dogs and being showered with attention.
He dislikes: being alone for long periods but is fine for half day.
Zulu will fit in almost anywhere but ideally he would love to share fun times and cuddles with someone home more often than not, like folks with older kids, active retirees or empty nesters. Keep in mind, Zulu is still very active and needs daily, good quality exercise.
Homes with another friendly dog may be considered but preference will be given to homes where he is the only permanent dog, just so he can have all the love !!.
While Zulu is good with kids we recommend homes where any kids are at least teenagers and only if gentle and calm around dogs.
He will not suit homes where people live in very close proximity to each other with small outside areas e.g. villas, units, apartment complexes, terrace houses, strata complexes etc.
As Zulu is people orientated he needs to be part of family activities.
Zulu will not suit homes with residents that are:
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker.
Zulu will suit any of the following:
Medium to high. His new owner cannot miss a daily outing. He needs regular exercise and mental stimulation like most Kelpies.
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs he starts off pulling but settles.
When OFF a lead ...
Zulu usually stays close by and comes when called.
