Chewy has been with us and has bonded with the others well. She still prefers to be in a quit, calm surroundings at times. Plays with the others and likes the outside in the daytime. Close around you or napping in an out of the way spot. After a bond is developed she wants to sit with you and sleep with you. She's about 40 to 45 lbs. now and tends to be very shy. Does bark at strangers.
