Hi there! My name is Fun Guy and before you fall in love with me and decide you just have to have me (I get it, I'm beyond adorable), there are a few things you should know.

First of all, even though I'm small and mighty, I do NOT want to travel in your purse. I also am not a 'kiss on the first date' kind of fellow, as it takes me a little while to feel comfortable with all that touching stuff. I'm just being honest - I'm a bit of an introvert.

Also, I have several nicknames. Some call me "the Goblin," others call me "Fungus," "Funny," and other nicknames along those lines. My favorite title, though, is "Fun Guy, Naughtiest Dog in All the Land!" I am a little terror, but I'm the best little terror ever. Everyone loves me, and you will, too!

I am looking for a pretty specific home, one with no little kids, not a lot of social situations, and most of all, patience. I've been a shelter dog for a bit of time now, so it's gonna take me a minute to learn how to be a good dog in the world. That's just my deal! I'm a little dog with a giant personality... a unique character! If that works for you, I'd love to meet you!
Come meet your new best friend
