Iris is truly beautiful, but she won't be for everyone ... at 7 years old, she's led a limited life and so much is new to her, and it scares her. She bonds quickly to those working with her, but a real relationship with Iris will take time, consistency and a ton of affection. She has basic leash manners but is not trustworthy offleash, nor will be for a long while. Another dog in the home would be ideal for her, someone she can learn from and follow. She's not for a family with children under teenage years, and a hard-no to cats.
