Baby loves to ride in the car and she loves playing with kids. They told us she is good with cats. She is paper trained and knows a few words that she understands. She knows the following words, "Sit, Stay, Down ". Here at ARF we have seen her be a little shy and reserved, but she has bloomed into a loving friendly dog.
