    Hello everyone,
    I would like your help in translating the words in Latin : courage, strenght, loyalty and love for a dog breed of the AKC, can you possibly help me with it?
    Thank you.

    My suggestion: audacia, fortitudo, fidelitas, amor.

    could it be ..."virtus, valiturus, fidelitas, amor"?

    Greetings

    This may suit:

    virtus, robur, fides, diligentia

    (Casquilho's suggestions, #2 in the thread, aren't quite apt, as audacia has a derogatory nuance, and amor is too nearly erotic to describe the qualities of an affectionate pet; fidelitas and fortitudo are too long to be snappily epigrammatic.)

    I don't disagree, but since virtus is etimologically related to vir, would it not be a strange word to qualify a dog?
