What is something you love about your pet? What else should someone know about your pet?: 
Shallan (nicknamed Lani) is a big girl with a very loyal heart. She's sweet and kind to her people (once she warms up to them, she is shy and fearful at first) and loves belly rubs. She loves to chase sticks and go on walks whenever she can. She's very well trained and does well running around in unfenced areas and recalls well. She is crate trained, loves her crate and is completely housebroken. She is a good walker and stays close to her people when off leash. She has a heart of gold and loves to please her people. Lani is a devoted and loving dog but needs to be in a home without other animals or small children. She is resource aggressive with her people's attention and needs to be the only pet in the household because of this. Lani would be a fantastic farm dog or a dog with a job. She's as loyal as they come and we would keep her if we could, but she has become aggressive with our other animals and we feel that she would be happiest in a new family that could give her all of their love and attention.

How many hours is your pet home alone each day?: 
Very few - owners work from home. Has been left alone for up to 9 hours without issue.
What does your pet dislike or fear?: 
Lani is shy around new people and doesn't care for many visitors until she gets to know them. She is nervous of loud noises and quick, sudden movements inside the house. She does best when she's outside or in a quiet indoors environment. Lani is resource protective and has begun to attack other animals in the household without any warning. She is not aggressive with people. Because of her aggression with other animals we would not want her going to a family with small children.

In her crate
