This 3 year old greyhound, with striking good looks, is called Merlin. Gentle-natured and quiet, Merlin is a dream to walk and is very undemanding of attention. He is friendly and well-behaved and is perfectly content to laze around for most of his day. He’s quite a favourite at the Shelter (if that’s allowed!). We recently brought Merlin to a public fundraising event and he was absolutely wonderful dealing with all the activity around him. Other times that he was taken out from the Shelter all went perfectly too.

Merlin has been neutered, microchipped (977200009690400), vaccinated and has had his worm and flea treatments.
