Merlot is an adult Red Tri female Australian Shepherd who weighs around 40 pounds and around 6 or 7 years old. Merlot is a very affectionate girl and will shower you with kisses all day long if you let her. She is housebroken and is currently regrowing her coat as she was full of mats and tangles from her stay in the shelter.
Merlot will politely greet strangers and will embrace new situations if she knows you are there with her. Merlot plays well with adult dogs, but is a bit overwhelmed by puppies that have that get in your face habit and will let them know with a gentle growl. Merlot seems to be best in a home without cats as she will herd them into a corner and not back down.
Merlot is that finely aged wine only in the form of an Australian Shepherd, who is gentle and has that perfect taste of who she is. Merlot is currently living in Chicago, she has said she would like to catch a Bears game this winter with her new family. Complete an application at New Spirit 4 Aussie Rescue. Reference NS 0731
