Mercy is Pup of the Week!!!

Meet Mercy! This stout lady is a hefty 60lbs but she’s as big as she’ll get. She was probably born in Spring of 2012 and is fully housebroken. When she needs to go potty, she goes to the door and she has no trouble sleeping through the night. She’s not a fan of her crate but is so well-behaved in the house that she doesn’t need it!

Children are Mercy’s best friends. She has been around little ones as young as 1 and she did great! She lets them poke and pry and it doesn’t faze her in the least. She’ll give them kisses on their face if they’ll let her and she’ll lay really close to them if they’re hanging around for a while. While she is great with children, she gets a little too excited when she sees a cat, but is easy enough to refocus. She’s also a dominant dog, so she can be pretty sniffy towards other dogs and they don’t always take that well. She fine chilling at breweries and restaurant patios, but wants to be an only pet at home.

Mercy loves attention and will trot right up to anyone around, willing to give her some love! She’s not too licky but she does like to give kisses 🙂 Thunderstorms scare her and she will try to lay on top of her foster mom and squish her at the first sound of thunder… but after a little time she relaxes and realizes she is safe. Just don’t expect her to go outside, she’s not a fan of rain!

If you’re looking for a couch potato pal, Mercy is your gal! She makes for an excellent binge-watching buddy. Short walks or a couple minutes of “fetch” are plenty of exercise for her. Mercy’s version of fetch: she runs and gets the ball, and then goes and chews on it, and then you throw it again, and she repeats the process. She’s an easy-going dog that just wants lots of attention. If she’s not getting enough, she’ll inch her way closer to you. Usually having a hand on her of if she is laying directly beside you, she’s content. On the rare occasions that she is hyper, she will bounce around and wiggle her whole body!

This sweetheart of a dog will love you unconditionally and is just looking for that home who will share that love with her. She will make you the star of her world!
