Mercer-Prison Dog's Story...
Meet Mercer! He's a 4 year old Great Pyrenees/Shepherd mix that was recently adopted and returned. Let it be known that Mercer is hearing impaired. He was returned because the father in the family said he would not come into the house when called. He also said Mercer snapped at him once because he was startled by the father while sleeping. The mother and daughter in the family adored Mercer. They said he was the perfect pooch that was very friendly, house trained and had manners. You can travel far and wide for a good dog and you won't find any better than Mercer. It may be best if he were in a home with older children since he is hearing impaired and can get startled by quick movements. Please consider Mercer if you're in the market for a new furry friend.

On October 01, 2015, Mercer was selected to be one of Friendship's Prison Dogs. He is currently undergoing training at the Grafton Correctional Institution. Prison Dogs are trained in obedience, basic commands, manners and proper leash walking. He will spend approximately 12 weeks at the prison.

If you are interested in adopting this prison dog, adoption applications are now being accepted. This dog will be returning to Friendship probably sometime in late December. All dogs return on an individual basis. You can find an app at friendshipapl.org under ADOPT-FIND A FRIEND. Hand deliver the app to Friendship or call if you live a distance away to see if you can fax one in. Please DO NOT email the app.

All dogs receive one or more vaccinations, a basic veterinary examination, are wormed, heartworm tested and spayed or neutered. Dogs 3 months and older are micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mercer-Prison Dog, a Elyria Great Pyrenees/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Elyria, or seeking a Great Pyrenees/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Elyria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elyria already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Elyria breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Pyrenees/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Great Pyrenees/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elyria paves the way for another one to be saved.
