One look at Merlin and you just want to give him a big hug. That roly-poly, doe-eye look reminds you of a giant, fluffy teddy bear. And like a huggable teddy bear, he is super sweet with his close family, enjoying attention and affection.

He’s got a playful puppy side to him, too – chasing balls and frisbees. He’s also a great student, eager to learn tricks for treats.

Even though he is gentle with his family, he can be unwelcoming to house guests. A new family for Merlin will need to work with a trainer to help Merlin be more comfortable around people visiting his home. Because of this a free consultation with a trainer will be provided to his adopter. With proper guidance and management Merlin can learn to accept new people into his world and be a valued family member.
