Mercy is still timid with men however she is making great progress. She is super sweet and craves attention. Due to her anxiety and timidness she will need a home that is willing to work with her and be patient with her until she is comfortable in her new home and with her human. She would do best with another confident dog in the home. She loves to play but will nip at the dogs when they run by (typical herding behavior) so for that reason, I wouldn't put her with young children. If you are an approved adopter and would like to know more about Mercy or would like to meet her, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mercy is timid however you can see her personality come out more each day. She is extremly sweet and is a velcro dog. She gets along with the other dogs in the house (and the resident dog savvy cat).
Please check back for updates as we get to know her better.
