Pastorale da Ponta da Pinta was imported at 8 weeks. She grew up to be a large girl with a wonderful personality. She was very smart, could open gates and freezers. She recieved her CGC and TDI with little training and loved nothing more than to visit the Hospice, Hospital and Schools.
She loved people. However there was no doubt in my mind she could protect if needed. She was a typical Estrela and would bark constantly if we let her. Very dog dominate. Passy was dianosed with HD at 6 months old. By the age of 4 she had arthritis in her back and hips. Sadly, it was cancer that we lost her too.
