Belle (nickname: Lamb Chop because she looks like the Lamb Chop puppet!) is a very sweet and quiet girl. She loves people but is still a bit timid around strangers. She warms up very quickly though. She enjoys walks, but her favourite thing is cuddling next to people. She is not crate-trained, despite my best efforts. She will choose to forgo food rather than eat in her crate. She will not even enter a room if her crate is in there, she stands in the doorway and quivers. Fortunately, she is very well-behaved and can be left loose in the house if we go out. She does have a bit of separation anxiety initially and will whine quietly and paw at the front door when we go out. She does eventually settle though. She would do best in a family where someone is home a lot.
