From the Foster:

Zipper is a very sweet and shy gal who likes to be where her people are and will move around the house with you.  She gets braver and braver each day and her spunky side is starting to shine more and more.

She is quiet in her crate both when we are not home and at bedtime. However, she likely will not need to be crated and does enjoy sleeping on our bed some nights and stays put until we get up. Zipper goes potty outside but has not yet given clear signals so we take her out on a consistent schedule to avoid accidents. She tends to follow our older dog’s lead, so another calm dog would be preferred but not required. Other active animals and kids might make better guests than housemates for Zipper as she is not all that interested in our 7 year old or our dog-friendly cat.  She has shown no aggression, just not overly interested.

Zipper does fine on a leash but so far she is too timid for walks. Walks are something we are working towards.  We think she is an adorable sweetheart and she would do well with someone who is looking for a quiet, easy going companion and is patient with her shyness as she builds confidence.
