Canis Panther Questions

I'm seeking a larger dog to become part of my "family". I have a male Aussie Shepherd/Lab mix, and a couple of cats. My German Shepherd/Chow mix of 13 years has passed, and my Aussie/Lab would like a pal. We live in a densely wooded area, in the U.S. Pacific N.W. in a wet climate. There is a River and mountainous trails nearby and places to roam. Do you believe the Canis Panther dog (female) would be a good fit for us?

Answer:
The Canis Panther is not the breed for everyone, they are very strong headed and need an owner that understands them. With proper socialization, the dog should do fine with other animals in the house as well as people. But with this dog being naturally wary of strangers and very protective, it is important for owners to set their dogs up for success and know what situations their dog can and can not deal with. The area you live in would be fine for the Canis Panther, but you must understand that this breed needs constant training and should NEVER be allowed to roam.
