Bindy is a 3 to 4-month-old puppy, that will be an extra large girl when she is full grown. She is shy and will need help to be confident when meeting new people. She listens and walks well on a leash. She is a big puppy and plays roughly, so she a home with cats or other small pets is not ideal. She is also shy and wouldn't do well in a home with active, young children. She is a mastiff/terrier mix, and currently weighs 35 pounds.
