Merlin, our 3-month-old white and blue merle Cockapoo, is ready to weave his magic into your life! Rescued from a puppy mill, he’s now savoring the joys of freedom.

In terms of looks, Merlin is a sight to behold with his soft, long, white and blue merle coat and striking blue eyes. Yet, his true magic lies in his temperament. Despite a challenging start, Merlin is a lover and a cuddler, displaying a remarkably sweet and mellow demeanor for a puppy.

Always radiating happiness, Merlin is content to play, be by your side while you work, or snugly fit in your lap, delivering his renowned heartwarming hugs. He’s a happy-go-lucky companion, thrilled to join you on any adventure.

Discover the joy of playtime with Merlin, who recently learned the delights of toys, particularly enjoying tug of war and squeaky toys. He’s a social pup, relishing his play time with other friendly dogs. While he’s yet to master singing, his attempts often result in endearing squeaks.

In terms of training, Merlin is progressing well with potty training, using pads effectively and adapting to outdoor routines.

Merlin is seeking a forever home with a loving family who will not be gone for long hours every day, and ideally, a friendly canine companion. If you’re ready for a touch of magic in your life, consider welcoming Merlin into your home!

KNOWN HISTORYThis precious kiddo was surrendered to rescue by a commercial kennel. These dogs were nothing more than a number in their previous lives, but their lives changed forever the day they were surrendered to PRAR! They’ve spent their time with us living in wonderful, loving foster homes learning what it’s like to be genuinely loved. ❤️  

Won’t you please consider adding this precious, sweet, loving little boy to your family? If you are not quite ready to add a new member to your family, won’t you please #SHARE our adoptable kiddos on social media? You never know when your share is the share that will bring them home.

Merlin’s adoption fee is $850 and includes neuter, microchip with free lifetime registration, age appropriate vaccinations and dewormers, and 30 days of medical insurance. He will come home with a hobo bag of things to help him get started in his new furever home. You can apply to welcome him into your family by completing an adoption application below.

Please understand that adopting from P.R.A.R. means FOREVER. Please do NOT apply if you do not have the time to properly train and exercise a dog, (professional training will be required within 1 year of adoption) or if you do not meet the minimum adoption requirements for the dog in which you are applying, (see minimum requirements above).

About this breed mix:

With the intelligence of a poodle and the loving nature of a cocker spaniel, it’s no surprise the cockapoo is one of the most sought-after crossbreeds in the U.S. They are a low-shedding, easy-to-love dog that comes in a myriad of colors and sizes to please any family. With an outgoing nature, cockapoos get along easily with everyone they meet. They’re a happy, friendly breed that will devote their lives to loving their families. Depending on how they’re raised, a cockapoo can be a couch potato or prefer romping outdoors. They enjoy playtime with children or other dogs, and will always be ready for some scratches after wearing themselves out. These dogs don’t discriminate, stranger or not, and love to get attention and will give it right back.
