MEET MERLIN - HANDSOME LARGE LABRADOR CROSS GERMAN SHEPHERD
Merlin is a young very large cross breed. He is big, bouncy and full of life and one very strong dog. Sadly Merlin hasn't had a great life and recently came into our care as an emergency. This handsome dude has been living in a yard for most of his life. He is super clean in kennels and has not lived in a home environment. Although this is the case we know at some point in the beginning of his life he has enjoyed play times and interactions as he loves balls and toys. Merlin hasn't been used to being given lots of human contact so we are at present building on this without lots of added pressures. He adores water which is the nature of the Labrador breed and he loves to run about the field at the kennels with his toys. He will bounce in and out of the paddling pool at kennels all day if allowed. Merlin has been quite accepting of other dogs although we know he hasn't lived with one. He is now going out on walks and we are working hard with his guidance and training to stop pulling. He is a very strong dog and will need a strong owner mentally and physically. To curb Merlins enthusiasm he has been now been castrated in our care on 8th June. On arrival Merlin had sore ears and some slight muscle waste on his back legs due to being in a yard with no exercise or walks. He is now having lots of run about and walks to build on his muscle and our aim is to help Merlin tenfold so he can find the love of his life. More details on the home our boy needs below.
THE HOME THIS GORGEOUS HANDSOME DOG NEEDS
Merlin is still under assessments in our care due to a difficult past existence. We are now building on his people interactions and also guidance on lead training. He is a very large handsome dog who is very strong. He is a big young lump of a dog. A home used to large breeds is essential for this stunning dog where someone can offer more training and guidance. Experienced homes are essential. Merlin needs a quieter home with adults and someone who will not put him under too many added pressures of a very busy home with too many comings and goings. Home comforts and one to ones are essential for Merlin and his progress in a home environment. Due to his large breed size we will not rehome him with children and prefer a home as an only dog. A home that can not only accommodate his size but have a large enclosed garden is essential or land. We ensure Merlin finds a very special adopter where his life can begin with lots of love and home comforts from the age of 2 years. His life has not been great and a special home is needed for this beautiful boy. Are you that special experienced person? Get in touch.
