Facts about Merida

  • Breed: Boxer
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
A bit bigger than average female who has a pretty brindle coat, a dark mask, one dark brown eye and one light brown eye is named Merida. Merida is 5 or 6 years old, low to medium energy and she’s going to take her time warming up to you; after all, friends are different from acquaintances. She is heartworm positive but not symptomatic. ABR will help with treatment, as always. Turns out Merida has some heart issues, (not love issues), and she is now an ABR Silver Heart.

Merida lives with Boxers, a small dog, a cat or 2 and foster parents and gets along easily with all of them. She has excellent manners and rarely gets on the couch even if invited. She prefers to try out one crate after another, looking for the one that is just right. She loves her humans and greets them with a bay, but otherwise rarely barks. Merida found her voice now she has settled into family life. She’ll let you know when it’s time to eat, or go outside, or when danger lurks like a mailman or strangers on the street. She likes being part of a family but does not play much with the others. Of course she is house, crate and leash trained.

The sweet, calm easy to live with lady would be a wonderful companion for someone who lives a bit more sedately and enjoys a leisurely walk. She prefers life with dogs much smaller than she, and does not bother the cats. She will offer kisses but only if you’ve passed the friend test and get down where she can kiss you.
