Joan is the sweetest little nugget who adapted to her foster home right away, after finding herself in the shelter. She very much enjoys the company of other dogs, and will cuddle and share her bed with them. Her favorite perk in her foster home, so far, has to be sitting on foster dad's lap watching TV. She is still deciding what her favorite show is, but we've heard Real Housewives is an early contender. Joan would do great in a social family, since she likes getting out and about to meet new people and feels comfortable, even in busy settings. We also think she wouldn't mind new people coming into her home to visit -- it just means more love for Joan! Joan is not currently living with kids, but doesn't seem startled by fast movement and loud noises, nor does she have any sort of jumpy/mouthy puppy behaviors. So, we think she'd do just fine with respectful kids 6+.
