I'm such a loving and playful girl! Why did my owner take me to a shelter? My name is Merle and I'm a very confused female Boxer mix that is approximately 3 1/2 years old. My owner took me in a shelter in W. Va. in December because they had to move and I guess I couldn't go along ... so they just left me behind. They had me for 3.5 years ... and I just watched them walk out of the shelter and leave me.  I'm very sad that I no longer have a home. I'm so sweet and friendly - I just love attention from people and to give lots of kisses. I'm good with other dogs and I'm used to being around children. I am playful and energetic so I hoping you will like to go on walks with me!  I LOVE to play ball! I'm pretty good on a leash, too! The good people of Castaway Critters saw my plight and said that they just KNEW they could help me get a home and new family, so I am on my way to Pennsylvania real soon (the 12th of January, I think!)  I am SO excited to think that someone might want me and love me again!  I'm already spayed, UTD on my vaccinations and ready to go!  I am really so sad to find myself without a family all of a sudden and it would make me SO happy if you would apply to adopt me and give me a forever home!

3/18/13 - Merle has arrived in Pennsylvania and is everything she was reported to be!  She is a VERY affectionate dog and her tail is ALWAYS going ... a mile a minute!  She gives A LOT of kisses and loves to be loved and to sprawl across your lap!  She was treated for heart worm before she left West Virginia and was lucky enough to have been in foster in the shelter director's own home throughout the treatment (which is now complete)!!! She desperately wants to find a forever home!  Please consider making her part of your family!  She is truly a wonderful dog!!! 

4/22/13 - Merle is a very sweet, loving, KISSING dog and just loves people!  She thinks she is a lap dog :) but is a bit big to sit in your lap while you watch TV!  She can not be placed in a home with cats or very small dogs.  If you are a family looking for a beautiful Boxer girl for company and entertainment and to play with, Merle's your girl!

MERLE cannot be placed in a home with cats or small dogs.

$260.00 adoption donation includes microchipping!
