Despite Merlin's very sad start in life, he really is such a loving, affectionate, and playful puppy. He is very well socialised around other dogs and loves to spend his day playing and exploring. He's great with older and bigger dogs and is very respectful. He also loves to play with other young pups! Merlin is a little cuddle monster, and will always be very glad to climb into your lap for a cuddle and a snooze after a long day of being a puppy! He loves to be cuddled and shown affection, especially when he's a bit snoozy. He really is such a sweet little boy with a heart of gold. Merlin really does deserve to live a life full of love, affection, and care.

Merlin is a fit and healthy puppy and has had a full health check prior to arriving. He has had his rabies jab and he has been fully vaccinated and treated for fleas, ticks and worms. He also comes with his own pet passport.

Arrival: He is currently in a foster home in Fleet, Hampshire.

Size: Medium once fully grown

Date of Birth: 15/01/2022 (veterinary estimate)

Neutered: No

Cat tested: Yes - passed

History: Merlin was found dumped in a very small hamster cage at a market, where he had been abandoned. He was skinny, dirty and very hungry. What possessed the individual to stuff Merlin into a hamster cage and dump him, we will never ever know. Despite this horrific start in life, he has flourished into the most loving and healthy boy.
