'R-E-S-P-E-C-T!' Isn't Aretha stunning? Aretha loves other dogs so far, is potty trained, crate trained and very friendly. She has had some training and you can tell that when she is in the yard the way she will come and sit by you when she is done with her business. She doesn't jump on you...most of the time and knows when you put your hand out for her to stay down or your turn your back to her, she knows what it means and instantly sits next to you. She is learning to play with toys, loves chewing on the bones. She has a very exuberant/wild side that I need to figure out how to curb. It only happens when she is coming out or going into her crate. She NEEDS a yard and a very ACTIVE family.She is the happiest girl in town!
