This dog is a COURTESY POST. Please read their profile to learn how to adopt.

Nitro is a 12 year old Chihuahua mix who enjoys playing fetch, going for walks, sunbathing, and eating treats (his favorite is salmon!).
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 is selective when it comes to humans and dogs, and prefers a calm, quiet place with very little stimulation. He needs time to bond with anyone new and adjust to a new environment, however he is loyal and friendly once the trust has been built.

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