Lottie is a gentle girl who takes a little while to warm to new people and then bonds well. She enjoys affection and praise and following a confident handler which improves her confidence. She has good manners with dogs smaller than her and could likely live with a confident cat. She would be best in a home with older children and with an owner who has had dogs before. She has lots to learn about home life, but with patience and time, will make a loving pet.
