I'm Nerf, Adopt Me!
Chihuahua Mix | Senior | Male

Ten-year-old Nerf is a happy, go-with-the-flow kind of guy. He enjoys getting attention from people and will sit contently next to you or in your lap. He gets along with other dogs and likes to explore his surroundings. He would do well in any home where he can stretch out and relax all day. Nerf has a positive history with other dogs. He currently weighs 12 pounds.

Nerf's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
