Weight: 10 lbs. but he's overweight by a few pounds-----------------
Age: 7 to 9 years old--------------
Health: No obvious issues found during vet exam. Owner surrender said he was only six years old but I don't think that's accurate. His poor dental care makes him look older. ---------------
Temperament: He's pretty shy and does not like to be picked up. Merlin needs a home that is willing to dedicate the time to help him trust humans. He very badly wants to be like the rest of the dogs, but he just stands back from a far and watches all the other dogs get love. He'll warm up with time and patience and become a very loyal companion. -------------
Where did he come from: He was owner surrendered due to not having time to take care of him. ------------------
