Meet Fizzle, Age 8 ½ 

Neutered male | up-to-date on all shots

Special Needs:  Some eyesight issues

My name is Fizzle, and I am an Italian Greyhound/Cairn Terrier mix. Like most Greyhounds, I love to nap (at least twice a day), and I sleep all through the night. I don’t care for other dogs, but cats are my jam; I just love them! And hanging out with people of all kinds (kids included) makes me happy.  I initially came from another shelter. MHF thought I would have a good chance of adoption in this geographic area, even though the previous shelter didn’t have much background information about my history. It’s too bad they don’t speak dog!  Are you ready to take me home? ML
