Meet Merceline (Mercy)

Merceline aka Mercy is a 1-year-old, 47-pound Pitbull mix who is looking for an active family and a comfy couch for snuggle time.

She is a happy girl ready to take on each day. She loves romping in the yard and playing with her toys. She can be a pretty cheap date too; one of her favorite toys is an empty plastic gallon milk jug!

Mercy is food motivated so training is super fun for her. She is also great in the crate and is totally house-trained.

Mercy is friendly with other dogs, although can be a bit over excited in the beginning. She is great with puppies and older dogs. Dogs of high energy or ones that bark at her first will potentially make her replicate the response. However, she has shown great progress of settling down on command. A little patience and lots of treats go a long way with her ability to learn for herself.

She has a history of leash reactivity but has made tremendous progress and can now watch dogs walk by without much to say. She can still get excited by squirrels and try to go say Hi, so it is best someone strong enough to withhold the surges of excitement and will continue to work on her leash walking skills.

Cuddling on the couch with her humans and/or her canine pals is a common pastime. Mercy is ready for a family that she can call her own.

Mercy is ready for a family she can call her own that have time and energy to train her. Best fit would be a single-family home with a fenced yard and no cats.

Her adoption fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lyme test, all age-appropriate vaccinations (distemper, rabies, & Bordetella), HW and flea/tick preventative, and microchip implant and registration.
