Acquired: Breeder (hobby breeder)

This dog probably has a few negative traits but so many positives. She had a rough puppyhood (we rescued her from someone who likely was training her to fight) and my parents were never able to fully socialize her. She's very scared of a lot of things - she doesn't like disruption in her routine, she's fearful of strangers and other dogs, and she doesn't like change. Unfortunately her fear often manifests either as anxiety or aggression. With people she's a complete dear, super cuddly and patient. With other dogs she has never bitten but has done some awfully scary barks. Also she smells a bit.
