I adopted Masha from a shelter where she was brought in as a stray. It it my belief that she lived as a stray for awhile. However Masha is an extremely sweet and affectionate dog. She is great with other adults and children. She is great on a leash and only pulls when she sees other dogs to play with as she gets super excited. I have never seen her get aggressive with another dog. I have never seen her around cats however on her walks she seems to want to chase them like she does with squirrels so that’s something to consider if you are a cat owner. I do not want to get rid of Masha though my landlord is requiring me too and I don’t have the ability to relocate in the short term sadly. The reason being is Masha doesn’t do great alone and if no one is home will constantly cry and will want to get out to find me. She has separation anxiety which I’ve tried to explain I’m working on but am not being given more time. I really think she would excel in a home preferably with a nice yard and someone to be able to keep her company whether human or another dog throughout the day. She has never once went to the bathroom in my place so is trained well in knowing to go outside. She also loves walks.
