Merlin has been in his foster home for 2 months now. He has calmed down a lot since being neutered and pexied and is attached to his foster family. He loves his foster Dane sibling and wants to play rough but will back off when she lets him know she has had enough. Merlin needs time to meet visitors before warming up to them, but once he is comfortable he is all leans and licks and loves attention. He walks nicely on a leash and travels well in the car. Merlin would love a family of his own and needs a large dog savvy owner who will continue to work with him on commands and provide an outlet for his young boy energy level. He sure is handsome!
Merlin is a 1 1/2 year old black male with natural ears “Daniff”, a Great Dane / Mastiff mix. He is a true Dane at heart, with Great Dane leans and that Velcro mentality. He is as handsome as they come with a glossy coat and beautiful white markings on the side of his face. His markings only add extra character to his already sweet and goofy personality. Merlin is in a foster home with a senior female Dane who he loves to give kisses to. They respond well together but when Merlin begins to play and gets excited, he does have a tendency to hump. This is the only issue between the two of them, but now that he has been neutered we will hope this behavior will stop. He does quite a bit of counter surfing, which his foster parents are working on. He is a curious pup which sometimes leads him into trouble in the house. He does well in his crate during the day but will get into chewing trouble when left out while no one is home. Merlin walks well on a leash and responds to basic commands. When excited and playing, he can get a little rough and mouthy (although very gentle) so we believe he would do best in a home with older children. Merlin is excited to fill his forever home with love, companionship and goofiness! Merlin came to MAGDRL in November 2016. (3)
