    Hello, I’m Merida! Though I may not share the same red locks as my Disney namesake, I’m a kind-hearted lady that’s ready to make her place in the world!

    I’m looking for a patient and understanding home that can help me work on my confidence, and that is willing to help me explore new things in a positive way! Being a shy girl, I like to take things slow and I definitely appreciate structure and routine, as I find a lot of comfort in the familiar. As a shepherd-type pooch, I am very smart and catch on to things quickly. Plus, I’m food motivated, which will come in handy when you’re teaching me new things! Once we’re better acquainted, I’d love to settle in to a routine that includes lots of love, walks, and play time! (And maybe a tasty stuffed kong or puzzle toy to keep me busy when you’re away!) Oh, and I’d also prefer a home without tiny humans, as my shyness will probably make me anxious and uncomfortable around them!

    If you have room in your heart and your home for a shy but loving gal, contact the team at AARCS to inquire about being my forever home!
