Xena is a true sweetheart when it comes to her people. She’s incredibly affectionate, always ready for a game of fetch, and loves snuggling up with her loved ones. She may be a bit reserved around new faces, but once she gets to know you, she’s your loyal companion for life.

She’s a quick learner who’s eager to please, making her a fantastic student for any training adventures you have in mind. She thrives on outdoor activities, whether it’s running with fellow dogs, chasing her beloved ball, or going on long walks. She knows how to respect your work hours but will politely remind you when it’s playtime!

Xena’s love for adventure extends to parkour! She’s always on the lookout for squirrels to chase, trees to climb, and benches and skateboard ramps to leap on and off. Plus, she’s got a soft spot for smelling the flowers in passing gardens. Just a quirky note – Xena occasionally mistakes balloons for bunnies, which can lead to some comical moments you won’t want to miss!

Xena takes her role as protector seriously and has been known to resource guard her loved ones. With the right guidance and trust-building, she’ll learn to share and feel secure. She has made doggy friends outside with slow and controlled introductions. She is not a candidate to live with other animals.
