Hey there, Laia here! I came here more reserved and sometimes need a little time to get to know you. I've since really come around to the people I see every day and love going out for my walks. I have been around some dogs and do not get along with most so I will have to be the only dog in your home. If I'm not in a fence I should be leashed because if I see a squirrel or small animal I will go after it. I have shown signs of some separation anxiety here too so it would be best if you can be home a lot with me! But for this reason I can't go to a home in an apartment or town-home. Crate training me would be a great first step. It will likely prevent me having accidents when I'm scared and help me feel safe when alone. I do love to play fetch and am really good at it! If you give me a chance I’ll be your best friend! I just need a patient person who's willing to positively teach me new things to keep me busy. We don't know for sure what my breed mixture is, but it's very likely I'm a combination of some herding breeds which is why you should do thorough research on our needs before taking me home. We need to keep busy and be mentally challenged to stay happy! I'm very attentive and want to learn, would you give me a chance to show you how good I can be?
