Adopter Update: Merlin

Merlin has had a very busy 10 days over Christmas but he has adjusted very well and is completely settled into his new home. He has met new family members and new family dogs and he is such a sweetheart and loves everyone. He gets along very well with his new sister and loves his belly rubbed and is a real kisser.

When Merlin first arrived he tired very easily and now that he has had regular exercise, he is romping and bouncing around the backyard with his sister without tiring. He loves his walks and is on a strict diet to help him drop a few pounds. He loves his toys and always picks up a toy to show visitors. He especially enjoys playing rope with his sister.

Merlin has been to the groomer and his coat is now clean, soft and shiny and they said he was a pleasure to have and was no trouble. He is going to the vet this week for a check up but his health seems really good.

Merlin sleeps in our room and has three dog beds to choose from and he sleeps on a different one every night. His sister waits for him to choose his bed and then she will choose another one. When it is bedtime you just say bedtime and up he goes. He is the most gentle well mannered dog. Everyone who meets him loves him and cannot believe his gentle temperment.

Merlin is a wonderful dog and we are very happy to have him as part of our family. I have attached some photos of Merlin over the last week. More updates to come in the future.
