Merlin is a handsome Great Dane with blue eyes and cropped ears. He is about 3 year old. He is truly a gentle giant and is very loving. He is well behaved, house trained, neutered, heartworm free and current on all vaccinations. Unfortunately, Merlin is a special needs dog because he is deaf. Because of his deafness, Merlin needs to go to someone who understands the special precautions and attention that a deaf dog needs. Merlin is great with kids, and he is used to being around cats. He was OK with other dogs, but recently he went after a small dog, so we don't want to put him in a home with small dogs. He may do OK with large female dogs. If you think you can give Merlin the loving, secure, forever home that he needs, please fill out the adoption application on our website: www.pawsofaustin.org
Many of the dogs taken into our rescue have been neglected and are in very poor health and usually in need of extensive medical care. Many of them are severely under weight and are Heartworm positive, a condition which will be fatal if not treated.
