This wonderful Dutch Shepherd has proven himself in conformation, temperament and endurance while competing in French Ring and excelling in off-leash-obedience and protection. This K9 is easy to handle, has excellent house manners and is well behaved in public. He is affectionate and social in all aspects of his life and has balanced drives making him the ideal personal or family protection dog. Dutch Shepherds, like their cousin the Belgian Malinois are usually very intense and busy dogs with over the top drives and lots of ball possession but not Mezcal, he likes his ball but doesnt need it, he is balanced and clear headed, mellow and can turn off easily and lay by your side while you watch TV. Mezcal does well with other dogs, farm animals, even cats. Perfect dog for a family or someone needing a compliant dog that can be taken anywhere with ease.
