Mr. Merlin is absolutely stunning and has a very impressive pedigree to match. He is both AKC and UKC Registered and has Champion bloodlines from Russia, France, Spain, and the USA. Merlin is being retired from our breeding program and I am raising one of his sons as my next stud dog. 

 

Merlin did beautifully when our three girls went into heat at the same time. We had three beautiful litters, 26 puppies in all! While Merlin is a fabulous stud dog, my heart is telling me that the added stress of the breeding process and hormones is not the best match for him. My desire with all of our dogs and puppies is to find the best life for each of them.

 

Merlin came to me as a one year old in June of 2020. I know very little about his past home life but it quickly became evident that he had very little training/handling. He was very unsure of himself and his surroundings, he was “on alert” all the time. And, being over 100 pounds at the time, he was quite the handful. I fostered him with a friend for a few months and when he came back to me I began working with him to develop trust and obedience. He has shown himself to have a heart of gold. He is sweet, loving, and so devoted to the one who gives him time and attention. I would keep him myself but I believe he would be happier in a home as the only dog.  

 

Ideally, I think Merlin would like a home with one or two adult humans who would like a beautiful devoted companion. Merlin would do well as an only dog. A female dog companion may also be a good match as long as she is calm and confident in temperament. Merlin has a history of reactivity toward male dogs so this should be avoided. Merlin is very well behaved in the house and knows basic obedience commands. He is eager to please. 

 

Merlin has a strong desire to form a bond with his human. He will need time to adjust to another change in his life. It would be beneficial for him to have a human companion who is experienced in force free/balanced dog training and rehabilitation. He will need someone with patience and willingness to devote time in order to develop a relationship that will be rewarding for many years to come.

 

Merlin will have his neuter on April 30, 2021. He is 125 pounds, current on all vaccinations, and a very healthy boy.
