Hi Everyone. I'm M&M, a small and sweet morsel of a pup (hence my name) who came to FTF from an overcrowded Texas shelter. My foster mom says I'm a perky and happy pooch who adapts easily and would fit into any home because I check all the boxes. Adults and kiddos? The more, the merrier! Other dogs? My new playmates! Cats? Uncertain as I haven't met one. But I'd sure be willing to make their acquaintance.

I love to cuddle (lots of lap time, please) and play with my toys. I'm good about going in my crate and getting better every day with potty training. Even though I'll never be bigger than this, I'm a young fellow, so training is required for my adoption. Classes will be lots of fun, and together we'll show those big dogs that little guys like me can be star pupils.

Having a forever person/family is my dream, and I hope you're thinking you'd like to make that dream come true. If so, please fill out an adoption application right away. The holidays are coming, and I know they'll be so much happier if we can celebrate together!

Love and licks,

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
