Ione is a rescue we brought in to our family almost a year ago. We're not sure of her backstory before then, but she is a very nervous girl, who needs a strong caring family who can provide her with the stability and love she requires. She is house and crate trained, but could use more obedience training, she is just leaving her chewing stage now, but may still leap up to a countertop if she thinks nobody is watching. She does not do well with raised voices / rolled up newspaper style of discipline - we assume because of her past before we had her, but these types of things will make her cower and shiver.
She is incredibly good off the leash outside. She heels, and takes no interest in other people or dogs, she will stay with her people, and will sit and stay when told to. This came naturally to her, and didn't take any special training on our part. She is great with children - our small children climb on her, wrestle with her, and she will not bite or show any signs of aggression at all.
