My Ideal Home:
Hi! I am Merlin and I am a two year old guy with the manners and training of a very young puppy! I also have the happy and fun-loving personality of a young puppy too! Basically, I am a super cute, super energetic guy who has extremely limited basic command training, some potty training and almost no manners. I am a little wild man who is slowly learning to be a good boy!
I also arrived in BBR's care with a couple medical concerns, so for right now, my foster family and our vets are just working on my training and medical needs. Once we have a better handle on some of that, my ideal home and needs will be determined.
In the interim, I will be hanging out with my best buddy /foster brother and taking a lot of pictures for all of you!!

Special Needs: TBD; see info under medications.
Medications: Yes, for infections in both ears. He will also need medicated ear wash twice per week until the Vet determines otherwise. He recently had a uti and is being monitored for recurring symptoms which will necessitate an abdominal scan. He is also on Rimidyl 1x per day for an, at present, undiagnosed issue with his right hind leg. Merlin is also exhibiting signs of a hypoplastic trachea.
Crate Trained: No, and he was doing well in a baby gated area but is not any more. He will crash through the gate and howl, bark and cry until he manages to do so.
House Trained: He will need continued potty training & reinforcement of a schedule. He also routinely marks blankets, beds, towels, etc.
Physical Fence Required: Strongly preferred if he will not be let out using a leash.
