My name is Merlin, and I will be 14 years old on August 24th. I am sweet, ans gentle, and love everyone I meet. My family has lost our home, and are moving where I cannot go. I am really going to miss them. I get along Great with other non-aggressive dogs, but will chase anything small that will run, like cats, squirrels, etc. It is fun, and keeps me young. The vet looked at me on May 15, said I am really healthy, except for an ear infection, and I have some medication that makes it better. He also did a heart-worm test and all. I also adore children of any age. I have lived in retirement homes, so I am well suited to indoor living despite my long hair. I also loves the outdoors,(but not in thunderstorms, or on the 4th of July). I love to walk, run, play, but I am easily as happy to sit still for long periods of time. I also love to ride in the car, and in fact travel well. I have been from CA to Montana, Washington, Texas and back to Oregon. Never get car sick, and I behave well in motels. I seldom bark. Mom says that I am the greatest dog in the world, and would make a great companion for anyone, but I believe I would be a fantastic, and loyal friend to a senior. I am big, so I will make you feel safe, even though I do not have a mean bone in my body... If you could give me the home, and the love I so desperately need...Please email FranKreger@aceweb.com for an application, and tell us a little about the home you have for me, what city you are located in, and a phone number would also be Great. No adoption fee but a wonderful approved home is a must. So email for that application...I will be waiting for you... For more information, you can call 503-269-7503. This is a courtesy ad.
