Merlin has been adopted!

Hi everybody! I'm Merlin and I am an adorable, kissable, lovable Landseer who just arrived in foster care. I'm about 2 1/2 years old, sweet as can be, and looking for love.

More details about my personality and training needs will be posted as my foster family gets to know me better, but so far I'm just a big love-bug. I know basic commands, and have good house manners....oh, and I'm adorable in case you didn't notice!

I am neutered, UTD on vaccines, and at 151 lbs I am a bit overweight! Time to get my paws moving and get into shape! I'm a happy, healthy boy and just want to have fun!

My family surrendered me to Newf Friends when changes in our household resulted in me and my brother (a Saint Bernard) not getting along well. Don't worry, I like other dogs a lot and have been well socialized, I love to go on doggie play dates and would be happy to join a family with another dog who is also well socialized. Here I am at the dog park having fun with a bunch of dogs....

If you would like to be considered for adopting me, please complete our adoption application to start the process. I am being fostered in the Kingston, ON area and my adoptive family will be required to pick me up in person. My adoption donation is $500.
