Merry - in Maine

Posted October 2018


Merry is a two year old cocker spaniel mix who is just the cutest !  He  is a local surrender who needs that “just right” home that is quiet with a consistent routine to help him feel safe. He is fearful of men and children – while he has learned to be brave when he is out and about, his home situation may need to be with an adult female, or could include a low key man willing to give Merry time and space while he learns to trust.


There are so many great things about this sweet and special boy. He loves other dogs and can even play in large groups of dogs. He respects confident cats and ignores chickens. He enjoys being with people he trusts and is not destructive when alone. When Merry feels safe is goofy, snuggly and a ton of fun.


Merry is approx. 30 lbs, and he is learning clicker training which has increased his confidence. Merry needs continued assistance learning that the world is not such a scary place.


If you are interested in Merry or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application


Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved,  a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
