Hi, my name is Stella and I came from a Local Impound. I currently weigh 45 lbs.  
I recently joined my foster family and I'm showing them my great personality.  Here's what they have to say about me:
Stella loves all the people she has met - family and non-family.  She plays well with my resident dog and we are doing slow introductions so they can get used to each other. Stella is very excited to play so we are working with her and are hoping to introduce her to other dogs to work on her play style. Stella is 100% potty trained - she cries when she needs to go out. At this time, Stella has a little separation anxiety and cries loudly in her crate at first but does settle after some time. At this time, I will say no shared walls would be better.
She sleeps in the crate overnight in my bedroom and walks fairly well on a leash - she can pull a little when she sees something interesting. Stella is food motivated, so this is a great training tool as Stella will work for treats. She knows 'sit' and will sit and wait for her food. 
As I settle into my foster home, I'm sure my foster family will learn more about me.  They'll update you later with more tidbits about me.  

Here are some videos showing off my great personality:
