Small animal safe:

Merlin is a 2-1/2 year old neutered male who is up to date on vaccinations and is heart worm negative.  He is an especially sweet and loving Borzoi and gets along well with other dogs and the foster home's house cats.  He walks well on leash.  He hasn't met a stranger yet and wags his tail for everyone, pushing his head in their stomach or lap for pets and rubs.  He will "talk" with "woo woo woos" if encouraged and likes to vocalize with grunts and sighs how much he loves attention.  This boy is a true couch potato and while he loves to run around in the fenced yard he prefers to be on the couch in the house.
The previous home's veterinarian diagnosed Merlin with a grade 2 heart murmur and your veterinarian should be made aware of this so Merlin can be monitored closely if anesthesia is necessary for any procedure.
This very incredibly sweet boy is looking for a home with a soft bed, warm heart, kind hands and lots of love.  If you are interested in adopting Merlin, please fill out our adoption application and email it to Carol Backers at
