What is your foster dog’s activity level? On a scale of 1 to 10, couch potato to wild child: 3 she will have bursts of playful and loves to go on walks but she also enjoys just watching out the front window

Blackie aka Lady Bug, would be amazing for an older person who can manage her moderate bursts of wanting to chase a cat or squirrel. She really hasn’t been around kids before we got her so she was a little nervous or uncertain around them at first but seemed to adjust quickly. She hasn’t had any little kids climbing on her or anything so she probably would not appreciate that. She does bark at things she sees while on “watch” or random noises so an apartment probably isn’t ideal. She loves overseeing her castle, rides and walks. She doesn’t seem to care about toys. She is a great copilot in the car.
