Fenced yard, no pets, does not currently live with small children has been around them with no problem. Even shared my bones with little people. However since she does not live with children I would not recommend small children She is very affectionate, house trained, always trying to please and well behaved. She loves people. Help with any cost, including spay will be provided to help her get settled in her forever home. I rescued her from an abandonment situation but in my house she does not get along with my two dogs. However, all three been out in the yard together for long periods of time (an hour or so) with no incident.
