Story
Meet Bambi! Age: 9 Weight: 17lbs Bambi is a well-rounded senior dog who surprisingly has enough energy that he won't sit still for a picture! Even when Bambi is the smallest dog in a pack, he's confident and gently playful. He has lived with dogs of all sizes and shapes, so it seems that nothing fazes him. When he's not playing, Bambi will definitely be plopped right down in your lap for some snuggles and nap time. This boy is a lap dog, for sure. Bambi is also comfortable riding in a car and enjoys the views from the front seat. If a smaller, playful but low-maintenance dog is what you're looking for, look no further!
