Hi my names Merlin!

I’m young, full of life, and eager to share my boundless energy with you.
I love to play and explore, and I’m always up for a good romp around the yard.
I’m friendly and loyal, always ready to give you my undivided attention. I do need a bit of help with my leash manners, but I’m a quick learner and eager to please.
Adopting me means gaining a friend who will always be there for you, ready to brighten your day with my enthusiasm and zest for life.

If you are interested in meeting me, the shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday 11am – 6pm (summer hours).
