Merlin (Friends of Akitas, kennelled Notts.)

Marvellous Merlin is a 7-year-old gentleman who arrived at Friends of Akitas Trust UK kennels in Nottinghamshire from the stray dog pound when nobody turned up to claim him. He had no microchip for a definite age, but vets have estimated 7 years.

Merlin is smaller in stature for an Akita, but the best things really do come in small packages. Since arriving he has shown his gentle and sweet nature and he loves to be around people and receive attention and fuss. He is quite food motivated and takes treats gently with no signs of aggression.

During his dog test, Merlin showed no signs of aggression, he just wanted to play and chase. He could therefore live with a female companion dependent upon successful introductions. He is not cat or small animal tested. As there is no previous history on Merlin, any children in his new family would need to be aged 12+.

It isn’t known if Merlin is house trained, as he was a stray, but he does try to be clean in his kennel, bless him. He likes to explore and go for walks, but he does need a little lead training as likes to zig zag to follow the exciting scents.

He is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

Is this ‘little’ stunner the companion you have been waiting for?
