Arrival Story: My husband and his cousin found Etta in a scrap metal yard. She was from a purebred family but her owner died prematurely and Etta was left to be a guard dog. Although when she was younger, she was intimidating looking, she's hardly guard dog material. She's getting on in years now and having recently recovered from bloat surgery she is happiest just lying on her bed and taking long snoozes. We like to keep her environment calm, peaceful and as quiet as possible for our gentle giant.
