“Hi there! I’m Merlot! Just like the wine, I am soft and easy to love!
I came into AARCS’ care already a mom with my eleven puppies, who are all doing wonderful! I love getting to know other dogs and playing with all of my toys! I really enjoy scratches, especially ear scratches, those are the best thing in the world! I love living with other dogs and nuzzling you for a treat or two. I’m not super small, but I’m not really big either, so I am the perfect size for people of all kinds! Cats are all right, but I won’t turn down any furry companion (even though I prefer dogs). I might be a little shy, but my foster mom says I am goofy and gentle once you get to know me! I get a little nervous when my foster mom puts my collar or my leash on because they are a little scary and unfamiliar to me, but I am trying really hard to learn, and she says I’m already improving!
I can’t wait to play with you and show you what a good girl I am!” – XO Merlot
