Munchkin is a very quiet and well-behaved companion. She doesn't bark or whine, is fully house-trained and does well left alone in her crate. She's also great with other little dogs.

Munchkin is shy at first with new people and is still figuring out how this beloved family dog business works, but she seems so thankful that her foster mom is taking care of her. She's still learning what toys are for, but she loves the cuddling on the couch part and makes for a great little movie-watching buddy. When her foster mom sits on the couch, Munchkin does the cutest little dance, because she knows it's time for snuggles! She also loves belly rubs and is still learning how to roll over for them - she doesn't know when to stop rolling and just kind of flops over. But we're sure she'll get it right soon!

Munchkin would love a home that's on the chiller side like she is, someone who will give her plenty of cuddle time and maybe a little doggie playmate or two to help keep her company. If that sounds like yours, come meet this sweet girl!
