From the Foster:

Bermuda has been such a joy to have around the house.  She is a 35 lb lap dog, or so she thinks.  She looks to us as well as our resident Corgi, for a sense of security and assurance that all is ok in the world.  The first couple days, Bermuda was shell shocked and did not trust anything.  Slowly, but surely, her great curiosity has brought her out of her shell. 

Pictures say it all that she's a beautiful dog, with a soft fawn coat, floppy ears, and vibrant and tell-all green eyes. Her disposition is sweet and gentle around all, people and dogs.  Yet, she is still very puppy-esque. When she is relaxed with her surroundings, it all comes out.  She also listens, so when you ask her to drop something or settle down, she does.  We've even seen her coming on command a few times. 

She loves the outdoors and the snow.  Loves dog toys.  Walks start out with trepidation, but soon become a new forray into new discoveries. It all is day by day and continuous exposure. 

Car rides can create nervousness, but yet she doesn't close her eyes and looks all around.  We do not kennel her because our resident dog is not kenneled and I don't want to separate the two.  But I have seen her go in the kennel without apprehension.  We have been leaving Bermuda free in the house when we leave, and have had no issues.  She settles down and is excited to see us upon our return. There have been no accidents in the house either.

She sleeps at the foot of my daughters bed, and once people stir, she is up and ready to go. She knows the word "outside" and we get her off the bed and rush her outside for relief.  A fenced back yard, or a walker with leash in hand, is the best for her.  She spends a fair amount of time outside each morning smelling the new scents, and does her business.  She returns hungry and ready for breakfast.

I think she'll do best with a family or individual that is active and wants a dog to join everyone on outdoor activities, and are prepared to get her out for 2 x daily walks.  I'm sure she'd love it if you already have another dog in the house for canine play and companionship. I see that she likes being on the couch or the foot of the bed with us.  If you don't want dogs on furniture, then she's a quick learner to stay down. However, we are the sort that gives in far too soon.
