Big attitude in a small, but adorable, body. That's Merv Griffin. He knows what he wants and he is not at all shy about letting others know about it too. Sometimes he'll want your attention and affection, and sometimes he'll want to be left alone to chillax in peace -- he'll let you know. Merv prefers to live the quiet life with just one special person and no other tiny humans or pets in the house. He loves long walks, appreciates a game of fetch, and enjoys naptime. If you sound like his kind of person, he is currently accepting applications for his forever human.
