Appears to be purebred, but we have no papers on her. We were to dog sit her for a short while, but original dog owner never returned and it has been 3 years. She has been loved and well taken care of. Beautiful female, smart, loving to immediate owners. However, has issues with other dogs, large or small, strangers. Not sure around very small children, but okay with teenagers. She is needy and wants constant attention. This sweetheart is a lap dog, but has attacked an older, smaller dog in our home and neighbor's dog. She is a loyal dog and needs a good home as a single or someone that can train her properly.
