Hi, my name is Merlin and I am a very handsome young collie. I am between 2-3 years of age and the staff here think I could possibly of come from a working background due to my strong collie traits. When I first arrived I didn't like wearing a collar or harness, it felt very strange but I am learning and walking well now. Having a lead clipped on can still worry me, so I need a patient home to help show me the big wide world isn't so scary. I really love my freedom and ideally would really love a rural home with a family that will give me the active lifestyle that I need. My friends tell me that I am a real sweetheart, sensitive and full of love to give to anybody. I could live with another dog, I have a very playful side so a friend to help guide me in the outside world would be a huge bonus. Sensible, dog savvy children over 12 years would be considered, and a homevisit to check I will be a good boy with cats!
