Merlin's Story...
Merlin is a sweet, short, hound/terrier mix who will likely not grow to be more than 35lbs. This handsome young man just entered our program in May, but we already know that he’s good with other dogs, good with kids three years and up, and good with dog-savvy cats who don’t mind being sniffed and nosed at. According to his foster mom/our trainer, Merlin is mostly house-trained already, adjusting well to the crate, and just has some basic puppy problems like chewing and a lack of manners training. We think Merlin will do well in the program since he’s smart and already learning. Stay tuned for updates!

Merlin currently has a pending application and will be ready for adoption by mid-June.

Merlin is receiving obedience training at a Virginia correctional center. To learn more about the Pen Pals program, please visit our website at www.fetchacure.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Merlin, a Richmond Hound (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Hound (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
