Meet Merlin

Meet Merlin, an incredibly sweet and handsome mix of the two corgis (Pembroke/Cardigan) originally from a particularly gross Nebraska puppy mill where he had lived his entire life as a breeder. His first month in foster was spent recovering from pneumonia caught during the long transport. But that's all behind him now!Merlin loves home life and his foster siblings; he is super gentle with his foster chihuahua sister. He startles easily and is still skittish but loves treats, dinner, fluffy toys, THE BED and hanging out with his foster ma in her home office. He is progressing steadily with leash and house training and enjoys car rides.Merlin's perfect home looks something like this: - No young children please (sudden movements and loud noises! Plus he likes to chew things left on the floor) - Securely fenced yard (for his safety; he loves exploring but cannot be trusted off leash) - Another confident, calm dog in the house to teach him "normal dog' stuff - Tons of patience, understanding (and ideally experience with shy dogs) who will actively help him become the bestest, most confident boy he can be - A solid commitment to help him embrace his inner goof (HE IS) while showing him that life with humans isn't so awful.His adoption fee is $200, which covers his vetting, neuter, microchip, and vaccinations. If you're interested in adopting Merlin, please submit an application at Please allow up to 48 hours for processing.
