This little cutie is full of puppy love and energy. He is a chewer which is normal since he is still so young. He will need some potty and manners training. Merlin needs an experienced alpha breed owner/family who is active due to all the puppy energy he has.
UPDATE 2/12/2017: Merlin was returned to the shelter because he has a lot of energy. He is just so excited about being around people. Per his last owner, he is very smart and eager to please. He is potty trained, walks well on a short leash, and has good house manners. While he is still a chewer, he stops once he is given a toy or bone. They did not have him around other dogs, but he plays in the yard with another dog at the shelter. Merlin is still awaiting his forever home.
If you would like too meet Merlin, come visit him at the shelter and submit an adoption application! Merlin is also available for Dog for a Day with an approved application.
