If you want a dog who is known for not only being cute, but also having amazing dancing skills, then you must meet Merengue! This little 7-pound bundle of love is a volunteer favorite and has even earned herself a nickname “The Dancing Chi”. The moniker is aptly chosen as Merengue loves to dance. She will stand on her hind legs and twirl around like she is competing in the Olympics of Dance. Her dancing skills aren’t her only charm – Merengue is also incredibly sweet and affectionate. She has a playful, happy-go-lucky, goofy personality that pretty much guarantees her having a strong throng of fans anywhere she goes! Merengue is currently enjoying life in foster care, and she is having a blast with her foster siblings both human and non-human alike. She gets along wonderfully with all dogs big or small, and she even lives with a feline in the house. Merengue loves kids, and she is very easy on a leash. Given her chocolate brown-and-tan coloring (with some white thrown in), adorable eyebrows, big eyes and big ears, we think Merengue is a perfect mix between a Min Pin and a Chihuahua. Her size makes her the perfect companion for any living situation, and the perfect partner for a day of errands. Merengue is also quite lively, so we think she would make a great hiking and dog park buddy, as well! This little lady has a short, easy-to-care-for coat making her a low maintenance kind of pup. She is smart, loving, housebroken, and is pretty much everything you could ask for in a tiny pooch! Come meet TBL’s very own “Dancing Chi” – just prepare yourself to want to take her home forever when you do!
