MERENGUE – Shepherd Mix / 3 years / 20kg / F-Spayed

What’s that? Merengue heard you were looking for a new best friend. Well, look no further! This sweet girl is on the lookout for love and human companionship.

Her foster mom says she is a total gem and shared what we know about Merengue:

SKILLS: She is house trained and sleeps quietly in her bed throughout the night and for a quick snooze throughout the day. Merengue knows “sit” and “lie down.” She’s food motivated and eager to learn new things. This gal will happily work for those treats! Great in the house – quiet, no accidents or destruction! Her #1 gift is her sweetness. A big softie…guaranteed to melt your heart!

WHAT DOES SHE LOVE? People…people…more people…and walks! Merengue would be a perfect match for an active owner(s), as she enjoys exploring. She will make a fantastic hiking or walking buddy. She is fine alone for a few hours as long as he has had plenty of exercise beforehand.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THEM?
She’s very loving and calm and is happy to be by your side. A TRUE BFF!

ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT:
Merengue gets excited about her outdoor adventures and is a puller. She is quite strong for her size so she will be working on learning nice leash manners. Food makes her very happy as well so she jumps up when she knows there is something yummy near by. Since she is highly motivated by treats, praise and affection, we have no doubt she will do very well with her training.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD WE KNOW?
She is confident on her own and would be OK as a solo dog. We think she would be fine without a yard (in an apartment/condo) as long as she had frequent walks and pee breaks. We are not sure how she is around kids, but due to her bouncy nature, we think older/sturdy kids only. Merengue passed her cat test in Mexico.
