Faun is highly social and up for sharing her grassy, fenced backyard (no chemicals at ALL ...

What Mernie would like to know about your dog

Besides being under 25 pounds and housebroken, only requirement is that my large chihuahua approves because she's the boss... but Faun likes (almost) everyone - she passed all ten AKC Good Citizen trials.
