Typical of the Kelpie Heeler, Quinn is active, intelligent, friendly, playful and eager to please her human companions.
Loyal to her owners and wary of strangers, this breed has a natural herding instinct and tendency to nip although Quinn is learning to curtail this.
Quinn is affectionate, smart, gorgeous, loving, easily trained and generally very well behaved. She takes time to warm to strangers and is naturally protective.
Active singles or couples, perhaps with older kids, home more often than not and able to continue Quinn's training.
Quinn is currently living with another friendly dog but tends to want all the attention. Hence, we recommend she is the only permanent dog in the home but should be fine with friendly dogs that visit.
Any kids should be at least teenagers and only if gentle and calm around dogs. No dog deserves to be rough housed or exposed to a loud, chaotic environment.
Quinn 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.
