Merf the Doggy Model
I am a 2lb, 1.5 year old Chihuahua and I am one of the doggy models participating in the Homeless to Haute fashion show, to help other homeless pets like me.
I was recently rescued from Lancaster kill shelter and I am very skinny as I found the experience stressful and didn’t feel much like eating. I am feeling much happier now I am out of the shelter and have got my appetite back! The shelter is a scary place, and I didn’t even have a bed.
I am looking for a forever home and family to call my own. Don’t let my initially shy demeanor fool you, I am a feisty fella with lots of energy to play! I am very smart considering my brain is so tiny, and am leash, crate and house trained. I have a thing for shoes and like the challenge of picking them up despite them being bigger than I am! I am very affectionate and love to snuggle and be carried. I am a happy boy and I show it by wagging my tail a LOT! I am also a polite boy and get along with people and doggies. I don’t wish for a home with young kids though, as I’m so tiny and delicate I could get hurt.
I am neutered, vaccinated, and ready for someone to love me! Please email my friends, All About the Animals, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to apply to adopt me.
