Merlin is in kennels near Fleet, Hampshire and he was born on the 2nd January 2015.
He is a gentle, very responsive black male who adores toys, especially footballs and cuddly ones. Merlin`s bed is usually covered in toys, it is sometimes hard to see where he is!
Merlin enjoys his walks and is keen to get on the move, he will walk nicely next to you, enjoying all that he sees but can get excited if he sees something of interest.
He would be best suited to an adult only home or with teenagers and he could be a companion to another greyhound or large/medium breed of dog.
Merlin is a boy who loves his food, he thinks if he eats it fast he gets another helping! What a cheeky boy he is! We keep on telling him he needs to watch his waistline!
He has met other breeds of dog and he currently needs more training and socialisation before he will accept smaller breeds of dog as friends. He is going to need an owner who is willing to take on this responsibility.
Merlin can now be distracted when seeing smaller breeds of dog and will come to you if you call his name. Merlin enjoys his cuddles from his human friends and is learning that this is more fun than watching a small dog. We will continue to work on this with Merlin whilst he is in kennels with us.
Merlin knows his name and will eagerly come to you when called for a fuss and some attention.
He is an adorable lad who is just looking for a family to give him the home he so deserves. For more information about Merlin please ring our adoption line.
