Personality: Nakoa has a gentle, quiet, and kind spirit. Almost like the personality of a cat, Nakoa is very independent; although she does enjoy being in the same room with her human and having that company. Nakoa has a calm and low energy, but she also has moments where she likes to run around and be playful. It is beautiful to watch her play in the yard as she tosses her toy in the air and hops around for it. Nakoa is an absolutely stunning dog.
