Good with Children: Met my 10 yr. old neighbor, then just went and sat on the couch. She didn’t care too much about him. Small children may get knocked over when excited, and she is adjusting to sudden movements and noises. Older kids would be best.

Foster Comments: This poor girl came from Serbia, & has been through a lot. A male must have scared her or done something; she is cautious around males but never threatening. She waits to see her sibling’s response before approaching a male. Another dog in the house is required for her to be happy.
