We adopted Scarlet when she was a puppy, at 8 weeks old as a companion for our rottie. When she was a week old her mum was killed. Since then she was hand raised. We started out with a few problems because she was hand raised from such a young age. However, she has bonded so well with our rottie (he lets her get away with a lot) and has the biggest personality! She is always up for a cuddle and will lay with her head in your lap and go to sleep. She's so soft and gentle around humans and just wants to love them. I don't think we could have found a more perfect dog for our little family!
