Where should Foster sleep?

I have my first foster, a 6 wk old hound mix that was found at the landfill. All is going well, had shots, been wormed, gets along well with my dog, she is constantly underfoot, but I haven't stepped on her, and she has little bite inhibition, but is learning.
My question is, where should she sleep? She has been sleeping in a kennel, while she was separated from my dog and cat. My dog sleeps in the bed, should Margie join us, or stay separated? I will probably have her 2-3 weeks, before she goes up for adoption.

Is a crate next to your bed an option? She's adorable . Thank you for fostering her.

In the kennel in the bed room I would recommend, you would likely end up with a pillow puddle with a 6 week old puppy in bed at night.

If she is a foster, think what the adoptive family would like to have. Basically a well adapted puppy who can feel safe in a kennel during any time of day, well adjusted to other animals...so I would think that a kennel would be the right move. just my .

ps...she is so cute...you may become a foster failure like some of us on the board...

Thanks for the replies

After posting this, I turned around to see that she had crawled into her bed in her kennel and gone to sleep, so I feel like she is comfortable and happy there, and there she shall stay. The kennel is actually just outside the bedroom door, which stays open.

Good advice, her adoptive family may not want her in the bed (we don't let Leo in bed ever) Habits like bed sleeping are harder to break then to start.
