Arrival Story: Merlin was found on the side of the road in bad shape. He was picked up by Star Aussie Rescue Group (STAR). He was named Merlin because there were so many things wrong with him when they rescued him they thought it was "magical" that he survived. I thought he had a wonderful spirit, especially after all he had been through, so I decided to foster him through his heartworm treatment and fell in love with him. The rest is history! He has been a wonderful companion and I love him dearly. And, he loves everyone!
Bio: Merlin loves to sneak bones away from his friend Wilson. He's so good at, half the time we never see him do it, we just see the end result with the bone in his mouth. Even Wilson gets bewildered!
Sadly, Merlin passed away in June 2006. He is missed by so many!
