Merle is a great big teddy bear in more than one sense. He's a huge cuddle bug, but youngsters beware, he cannot see well out of his left eye, so caution when going in for a hug! He prefers a very gentle touch and does not like to be startled or have his ears touched. Merle will take some patience in the beginning because he was not very well socialized. However, once he warms up to you, he is your new best friend. He is crate trained, loves rawhides, toys, and basking in the sun. He would prefer to sleep in the big bed, but he is a pillow hog, so he does much better in his crate at night. He needs to lose a few pounds, but so far he is doing great on his new diet. He would be best suited in a home with older dogs or no other pets, no cats, and no children. He loves adults, and sofa time is his favorite time!
