Nene is a tiny fellow but he’s got a lot of love to give to his new person or family. Nene loves squeak toys and cuddling, and he’s the type to burrow under the covers to stay nice and warm! He has been taught some tricks like sit, paw, stay and others, but he will need to have his house training worked on. Other favorite things include fetching and retrieving a ball, having his chest and belly rubbed and playing a good game of chase. Nene is very affectionate and protective of his person. Come meet him at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption & Education Center.
