adoptable dog

Are you are looking to bring a new dog into your home?! Well, look no further and bring home this cute adoptable dog.

You can help change the life of this very deserving dog either by adopting him yourself or sharing his details with your friends!!


Merle is a Bulldog mix. The vet thinks that he’s about 7.5 years young. He didn’t have the best start in life but that’s not slowing him down! People never gave him any structure and guidance and then just gave up on him when he misbehaved. But Merle just keeps showing love and joy.


This sweet guy loves to lay on his bed and cuddle up with some blankets. He does great when he meets strangers. And he is one spectacular pup when it comes time to go to the vet! He just loves of all the attention. Merle is house trained and very clean in his kennel and home. He is very dog and cat friendly and would do well with kids.


Merle is currently in foster care with a wonderful dog trainer. He is doing well with being calm in the kennel, walking on a leash, and all of his basic obedience. Merle has a history of breaking out of his kennel when left alone, so the trainer is really helping him work through this issue. But in general, this little gem is excellent, calm, and quiet. And he will certainly thrive and flourish with continued love, training, and structure.


Merle has a lot of allergies and is on monthly allergy medication and a limited-ingredient dog food. And he is really showing improvements.


Some more about Merle:


He is currently getting spoiled in Columbus, Ohio. His adoption fee is $150. He comes with a special crate, some allergy medication, and dog food. He is up-to-date on vaccines, neutered, heartworm negative, and microchipped. His adoption will also include three private lessons with his foster mom who is an amazing professional trainer! 


Merle deserves someone willing to put in the time to help him succeed in life, and in return, he will be a devoted and fun best friend.

The rescue strives to educate the community on responsible dog ownership, advocating for their dogs, how to prevent dog bites, and the importance of having their dogs trained. They aspire for a world where no dogs go without a home. The rescue aims to be a leading voice in the Midwest, and hopes to inspire others to incorporate training into their rescue programs.
