Merrow… Big, Black, Beautful

Look at this face… is he not beautiful!

Yet because of his nondescript colour, potential adopters pass him by without as much as a sidewards glance.

Merrow

Merrow is an 8 -10 month old Border Collie mix. When only 5 months old he somehow lost his way and ended up at Winnipeg Animal Services as a stray. Four months have come and gone and still Merrow waits. Merrow is a happy bouncy boy and now at almost 10 months old, he is big, black and beautiful with a playful yet surprisingly mellow personality. A true black pearl.

Winnipeg Animal Services is very full right now with adoptable dogs… over half are similar to Merrow, black in colour, yet all of them are more than deserving of a second chance and a second look. My wish is that folks would take the time to stop and visit, pause a moment and look into their eyes, see beyond their colour, or lack there of. I really do believe that many would be surprised to find their new best friend gazing back at them.

Post Note: Merrow is now in the care of Darcy’s A.R.C. (Animal Rescue Center). Thank you so much for taking Merrow under your wing.

Post, Post Note: Wonderful news… Merrow has been adopted!

    Black Dog Syndrome is so sad, we have it at our local shelters too. You’ve done a good job getting some definition on his face. So often they look like black blobs in pictures.
