Bella lives up the Catahoula traits, being loyal, clever, energetic, and very intelligent. She will follow you around the house and enjoys both running around (zoomies, anyone?) and chilling on your lap (she still thinks she's a puppy sometimes!) or at your feet. She's very curious, but once she's gotten the sniffing out, she tends to follow her human around the house, and is especially protective of her chosen human, most likely the one who feeds her! Regarding dogs, she's not good with small dogs, but once she gets to know other dogs closer to her own size she'll be better. She usually does best with male dogs, but as long as a female was closer to her size, she would probably be able to adjust with time.
