This lil girl is a bit timid but she warms up over time. She will need a patient adopter who will let her come around on her own time. She is a retired breeder around 3 years old. Someone with timid dog experience is recommended. She doesn't know that cuddles & laps are a good thing, yet. She will come around with hand feeding and time. She has not attempted to bite or even growl but she does bark on occasion. She hasn't been too vocal here. She is very very sweet! She is going to be someone's best friend.
