She has been in the home for 4 year.
Raven lives with 2 adults is tolerant and respectful of small children of she encounters. When visitors come to the home she barks to alert the family and will greet them with sniffing. There are no other animals in the home. She can be insisitent on her walks and if she encounters other dogs she may pull on leash and become aroused but the owner does not allow interactions. She has not been exposed to cats. Raven is house broken.
Raven may resist a bath at first but will allow it. She also allows brushing and nail trims. She is receptive to handling at the vet. If on the bed or couch she is easily removed. She does not guard her food and if you take her food she will watch.
She does not play with toys but may play with stuffed animals. She knows the cue sit. When the family is home she likes to be where they are, when home alone she is well behaved. She enjoys both some and dry food.
