"My name is Grizzy and I'm just about the cutest little guy there is. I'm a 2 year old male terrier mix who is a bit skittish at first but I warm up quickly. I wasn't treated so well in my past life so I'm still a little afraid of men but my foster dad is so patient and gentle with me that I am beginning to warm up to male humans. I was previously in a shelter and I was terrified because I was on a list to be euthanized the very next day...apparently no one wanted me. But just when I thought my life was over, LDRNM came to my rescue and saved me... I will never forget what they did for me. Just so you know, I'm a tail wagger who loves to lay on my back and beg to be petted. I'm gentle and sweet and I walk very well on leash. I learned how to use the doggy door right away so I guess you could say I'm pretty smart. Although I weigh 27 lbs., I am truly a lap dog because I'm affectionate and I love to cuddle up to my humans and be right next to them giving them all the love I have. I'm sure I will be the best dog for you because I appreciate every little thing in life, especially now that I've been given a second chance at life. Won't you give me a chance too?"
