Gretchen is a diamond in the rough. She had never been in a house until she came to live with us and has had no training. She is a very sweet and cuddly dog. She will try to get in your lap if she can once she gets to know you. She is shy at first and may cower. Gretchen does jump on people looking for attention once she gets to know you and we are working on this. She has had a lot of improvement but because of this I would not recommend small children. Gretchen LOVES food. She will counter surf or dig through the pantry if given the chance. She is easily correctable and is learning that this is not acceptable behavior. She does sit and wait for her food. She also knows to sit and wait to go outside and get her leash on. Gretchen is very smart and learns quickly. With a little training she will make a great addition to the right home.
