Hi friends, my name is Merlin or my foster mom sometimes calls me MerMer! I'm friendly, outgoing and handsome, a triple threat you could say! I'm a young guy that has the energy to show for it, I'll surely keep you entertained with my quirky personality!
I love to play, all day every day! I really love the games that I can play with my doggy foster sister. We play chase and tug of war, and she likes to play fetch, but I call it keep away (It's more fun that way!) I'm still learning to control my mouthiness by chewing on bones or toys instead of my human friends when I get excited, I am a puppy after all! I've made great progress so far, ensuring that I have plenty of appropriate things around to chew on will help redirect me! I've already mastered the whole potty training thing since I've been here and I didn't even mind the snow either! I'm great in the kennel at night I will even sleep all through the night without a peep! But if I'm in my kennel during the day, I will let the others in the house know I'm trapped and need some rescuing! So for that reason, my mom says no apartments for me. They sound like fun, but she keeps telling me she knows best? I've been learning some fun tricks to impress my new family, I can already sit and am working on come and lay down too. I get along with all people, including kids! There is this really little kid here, he is 7 months old and I love him! He's just so much fun, I lick his toes and he laughs away!
I'm just the happiest boy you'll ever meet! I'd love to find an active family with another active doggy that will get me daily exercise and stimulation while I live out my puppy years! I promise to bring lots of love and smiles (and laughs) to your everyday life. I can't wait to find a place to call home, I'd love to meet you!
