Hera is extremely well behaved and quiet. Even if other 6 dogs alert bark, she would only stand up to check on what is going on, then go back to sleep and doing her business. She never chew, but she would not play toys either. She loves walking with her person, and just trotting leisurely. After around 30-40 min walk, she quietly hangs out at home with other dogs.
Hera can be skittish in the beginning with people – male or female, but after a proper sniffing of hands, she will let the people pet her body. Hera is almost like a kitty in this regard – she would not actively seek for affection, but if it is her human petting her, she would head butt their hand for affection.
Currently, Hera is potty trained and would only go on the grass outdoors. This being said, she might prefer pottying indoors in the beginning at a new family when getting used to the new environment. She is food driven when she knows her people, but will not take treats from people she does not know.
Hera will do best in a home that is medium energy, and can come home mid day to break up the long days. Because of her history, the new family will need to be patient and build her confidence with strangers.
