Merrill's Story

In need of a playful dog who will also be your snuggle buddy for these cold days coming in? Come and meet Merrill! Merrill is a 1-year-old Hound Mix who jumps for joy when you come home. She is curious by nature, and loves to go exploring outside. Merrill can become frightened with fast cars and loud trucks, so she prefers her walks to be in quiet neighborhoods so she can relax and enjoy all the fresh smells. Like most dogs, Merrill absolutely loves treats and they have provided as a great tool for helping her learn tricks. Her fosters have helped teach her sit, stay, heel, and lay.  


Merrill will thrive in an experienced home where she can continue her basic obedience and leash etiquette. She will love a family who will want to take long walks in the park with her and spend time playing games with her! Merrill would prefer a household that has family members over the age of 15 as well. If you are interested in meeting Rae, please stop by the Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 North Clybourn Ave., in Chicago's Lincoln Park Neighborhood!
