Martha is a gentle giant who enjoys spending time with her humans. She is very eager to please and adapts to new routines quickly. Martha is very food motivated and can be persuaded to do just about anything with the promise of a snack! She is well-versed in basic commands and is easily directed into her crate.

Her loyal and protective ways would make her an ideal family dog. She is generally a low maintenance pup who requires minimal exercise. Short daily walks should be sufficient for her. She has not shown any signs of toy or food aggression and can handle being left alone at the house. She even understands the difference between dog toys and your shoes and furniture.

Martha could use a little work in the leash training department; she tends to pull and attempt to chase small animals while on walks. But with some training and love, she will be on her way to being the perfect companion! Come meet her!
