I'm sturdy, stocky and have the build of a much bigger dog than I actually am. I can hike all day with you or sit in your lap to watch the sunset or wait contentedly at home for you. I'm not needy and can play by myself when you go out, but I'm always ready to comfort and love any human who crosses my path.
I'm housetrained and crate trained, happy to be indoors or out, but happiest wherever there are people. Even though I'm laid back, I used to get on the wrong side of other alpha female dogs, so I'm currently going to school to help me enjoy playing with all kinds of dogs. Life is now a LOT more fun. All I need to make it complete is a home and family of my own to love and protect. One of my best friend volunteers has made a beautiful photo story about me on Facebook. Check with her at firstname.lastname@example.org and she'll tell you how to see it.
