From the Foster:

Lila is a big sweetheart. She is a big clumsy puppy who is very unaware of her strength and size. She loves to play and give kisses (with the frequent puppy nibble in the mix). She walks great on the leash and even sits as soon as you stop walking. We are working on manners (like not jumping up and not nibbling), and she is a super fast learner. She has been starting to sit on command. She plays hard but also naps hard and is very food, treat and praise motivated.

Lila loves playing with my kids but she is still a lot for my 6 and 8 year olds. She doesn't know her own size or strength and has knocked them over or jumped all over them to give her strong kisses and nibbles that to a little kid can feel like a bite. Although I think she will learn quickly, a family with older kids would be best. She has been curious about my cat but has not chased or barked at her yet. So far just keeping their distance. She is just learning to love her crate and barks and whines when you leave. May be best for a home without shared walls until she gets used to being alone for periods of time.
