My story:

Bean is an extremely loving, affectionate and intelligent girl.  She knows many basic commands.  She definitely needs to get to know you first, which means we'd like you to visit her at least a few times before making a decision regarding adoption.  If she loves you though, she loves you forever.  Bean has shown an interest in cats, but it hasn't yet been established if she actually likes them.  We are also working her into play groups with some of our other dogs, but she is not to the point yet where we'd consider her "dog friendly".  She most definitely does not like children.  We aren't sure what may have happened in her past to cause this.  Once she becomes accustomed to you, however, she is extremely affectionate and loving.  She would make a wonderful companion to the right home!

My ideal home:

I would do wonderfully in a home where I'm the only pet, with no children...
