Gwaii is an easy-going and playful dog who enjoys to be in the company of other dogs.  She was found amongst a pack of strays on a mountain.  People sympathetic to strays would feed the dogs and one day whilst feeding a large dog bit her as a three-month-old puppy.  Gwaii is looking for a puppy experienced home with another well socialized resident dog that can also provide proper exercise, work on housetraining, and obedience training.
