From the Foster:
Mindy is a little sweetie and gets along with dogs on floor level, but when it comes to couches and bed, she is a big resource guarder and may be best as an only dog. If a dig tries to join her on one of these, she will growl at them and often attack them. She is small, but mighty. We are working with this, but expect it will always be a challenge.
So far she isn't a lap dog, but she likes to lay down near you. She wants to bewherever you are, and will bark if you close the door between you. She may not be a good option for shared walls because of this.
She needs to put on some weight as she is too thin. She needs a little coaxing to eat. It may be teeth related, or not. She is scheduled for a dental on the 22nd.
She really loves her people and lives to sleep with them. I think for her, being crated at night is not an option.
