Nitro is a 13 year old Chihuahua mix who enjoys playing fetch and going for walks. He is in fantastic health, up-to-date on all vaccines and neutered, as well as leash trained and housebroken. He also responds to basic commands such as sit, stay, down, off, and come.

Nitro has made amazing progress in his foster home, which just proves he just needed some time to trust and bond with his person. He now loves interactions with his foster and even loves to cuddle. He has improved even when meeting new people but does prefer that interactions with strangers be on his terms as well as short and sweet. He is happy enjoying a short walk when the weather is nice or just hanging out inside sleeping the day away. He is a loyal and friendly little guy that just needs a beat to build some trust.

Additionally, Nitro would be best in a home without children as he can become fearful and anxious when overwhelmed.
