My story

Hi I'm Merlin! I am a laid back, sweet guy who is looking for some humans to chill with, and maybe even a canine brother or sister to play with. I have been told I sound like Mr. Snuffleupagus from Sesame Street because I LOVE sniffing the big outdoors - it is important for me to keep track of all the smells in the yard. I have a couple of health issues that the staff would be happy to talk with you about, but this doesn't stop me from chasing a ball, going on low-key walks, playing tug-of-war, and having fun! Sometimes I can get very very excited when someone is giving me a lot of love, or there is alot going on, so my foster humans sometimes have to separate me from my foster brothers - I don't mean to be a wild-child, I am just so happy to be involved in all the goings-on! I love all the snuggles on the couch while my humans are working or watching TV, and I am an excellent bedtime snuggler (and I don't even snore!). 

My adoption fee is waived!

More about this rescue

Paws4ever is dedicated to creating and growing lifetime relationships between pets and people through adoption, education, training, and care. The Paws4ever Adoption Center is a placement partner for animals transferred from county shelters, including Orange, Chatham, Caswell, Alamance, Wake, and Durham, where the number of adoptable pets outpaces the space to house them. Our Learning Center provides the most affordable and comprehensive array of dog training in our area, and the sanctuary is also home to a 3-acre dog park. Our Legacy Care program provides peace of mind for pet owners by ensuring care for when owners are no longer able to provide that care.
