Age: 10 months
Breed: Australian Shepherd/Rough Collie mix
Merlin is ready to find an active home of his own! He’s a big, playful guy who would love a friendly younger canine buddy to pal around with at home. He can be a bit too exuberant for cats and kids – so a home without is best. He’s also still learning that not everything on the floor is a toy (socks, legos, towels, water bottles, if it fits in his mouth he’s picking it up) so he does need to be watched when loose – luckily he is both house and crate trained!
He’s still working on basic manners and is very treat motivated! He walks fairly well on a gentle leader or no-pull harness – and doesn’t try to take your arm off to chase those annoying squirrels. He loves a good game of fetch and then settling nicely for a frozen kong. He can be a bit…expressive…if he feels he’s being ignored, so shared-wall living would not be ideal.
Merlin is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. He is currently fostered in Greenville, SC and his adoption fee is $325. He will be adopted with a training deposit of $200 that will be refunded upon proof of enrollment in at least one training class.
If you are an approved applicant and are interested in Merlin, please contact the adoption committee. If you are interested and not yet approved, please complete an adoption application.
