From the Foster: 

Penny is the sweetest dog you could ever ask for. If you are in search of a loving lap companion, you have found her.
Penny is not playful but she is funny and very smart, she loves to lay as close to us as possible or on my chest or belly and she falls asleep within seconds she loves to give kisses and will pull my head towards her with her little front legs to get me close enough so she can give me kisses. She loves snuggle time more than anything else in the world. 
She is good with other dogs, but definitely gets jealous if they interfere with snuggle time at all! She is potty trained on a schedule, and she loves to roam around the backyard. She is good with calmer, older kids - the fast movements of younger ones make her nervous. She loves going for rides in the dog stroller.
Penny originally came in with her brother Bugsby, and they would love to be adopted together, but they would both do well apart also.
