Story
Nala is a beautiful and very intelligent 3 year old Australian Shepherd mix. She is fully house trained as well as kennel trained. She knows simple commands like sit, lay down, wait and speak. She has grown up with cats and older children. She is very loyal and loving with her family. We are looking to rehome her because, despite her loving nature with her family, she is territorial/aggressive towards strangers and unknown dogs. I believe she will do best in a quiet household that is not as busy. Some room to run outside would be great as well! She will take time and patience to warm up to a new person, but once she does, she will follow you everywhere. An owner who has experience with territorial dogs would be preferable.
