I am translating the short phrase "loyal animal", or "faithful animal" into classical Latin. In this case, "animal" is intentionally very broad - I don't want to limit it to just domesticated animals or wild beasts; it can literally be any animal. My current translation is the singular Animal Fidelis, but I wasn't 100% positive because of the difference in gender of both words.

Indeed, if you want these two words, the correct agreement is animal fidele for the neuter gender.
