Marisa is very comfortable with other dogs and loves playing with dogs of all sizes. She can sometimes be shy around new people which is understandable as she came from a home with 23 neglected shar pei mixes where she was forced to live in a cage before she was taken to a shelter. At the shelter, she faced a 72 hour euthanasia deadline before we saved her. Marisa has come a long way and is as sweet as can be. She's not super vocal or jumpy and enjoys down time in her crate. While she does well on walks, she gets excited when she sees squirrels or other unknown dogs which easily fixable with a little training. She's a great medium sized dog and would love to be your girl! She is likely best in a home without cats but we are happy to "cat test" her.
