Meet MERLIN! This magical dude has travelled from the beaches of Dominican and is ready for his second chance in Canada! MERLIN is a big cuddle monster and is extremely affectionate. Even play time quickly turns into snuggles where he’s totally cool if you hug him forever. He’s medium energy and is easily exited. New friend? Field? Ball? YES PLEASE. He would benefit from an active lifestyle or even just a backyard to tire himself out. Although he is goofy and curious outside of the home, he is very chill and well mannered in the home! He’s great with his chill time and he’ll quietly chew his bone until he passes out. He’s adapted very quickly to his new household routine and has taken cues from his two senior pup roommates – like afternoon bingo and potty breaks. We think he’d fit into most home environments easily! He LOVES fetch! MERLIN is house trained and crate trained and knows a couple of basic commands. He’s very smart and should pick up additional commands easily. He will need help with his leash skills as he pulls a lot and barks at anything that passes him. His barking isn’t aggressive, he just wants to say what’s up.  If you’d like to meet MERLIN fill out an application to ADOPT
