She likes to sleep with a person at night. In her former foster home Kelly learned to navigate the stairs, and picked up on the family schedule and would move from bed to bed as people got up and started their day. She can get into trouble if left unattended in the home — she will counter surf, knock things over, find herself “stuck” on a table, dig through trash etc. She would do great with an active family that can give her lots of attention and exercise, a home with a secure yard and a confident medium-large sized dog(s) that can help show her the ropes and would be tolerant of her puppy energy.
