Meet Merida! This sweet 25 lb chihuahua mix is about four years old and is getting a fresh start in life. She's currently living in a foster home until the perfect family finds her! Merida is getting used to being a pet, so she can be shy sometimes and should not be in a home with children. She loves her "baby - a moose toy that she sleeps with every single night. She also is a wiggly girl who is happy to see her people when they come home. As for training, she is wonderful in a crate, is housetrained and gets along with the other pups in her foster home. She is working on her leash training, and is slowly but surely learning how to be brave. Merida is a pretty low-key pup who doesn't need a lot of play time. Her ideal home is a quiet one where she can decompress from her previous life as a stray. Her new family should be adults only and have lots of patience as they work with her because she's not yet a super affectionate dog. This sweet girl deserves the perfect forever home. Could it be with you? Apply to adopt Merida today!
