Pet of the Week: Marvelous Merrick

Becky's Pet Care

Meet the Marvelous Merrick, a male Retriever & Border Collie mix puppy available for adoption locally. Here is what his friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about him:

Merrick truly is a marvelous little boy. Just 16 weeks old he’s still a puppy, yet not a tiny baby which has it’s advantages.

He weighs 11 pounds now which means he’ll likely be a pretty small guy when full grown, perhaps around 25 pounds, so he’ll be easy to bring along on all sorts of adventures.

He’s been lots of fun to have in our office where he gets along famously with the other office dogs around his size. This fabulous boy is a nice blend of friendly affection and normal puppy playfulness and will be great company.

Are you and Merrick a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.
