Little CreekMerlin
I was given to the shelter by my previous family because I could not get along with the other dog in the home so I am looking for a home where I can be the only dog. I bet you don't know what kind of dog I am do you? Well, everyone thinks I am a Mountain Feist dog and we are known for our love of hunting. You don't have to be a hunter to give me a home but I will need a lot of walks and exercise as I have energy to burn. Oh I forgot to tell you my name. It is Little Creek but you can call me L.C. if you want. I was so upset having to come to the shelter that I made myself sick when I arrived; I hate being confined so you can imagine being here for two months now is starting to wear on my nerves! I do have a high prey drive so I can't live with smaller animals but I love people and am most friendly but I have never lived with kids. I am house trained, I am sure you will like that. I know I am different and may not be the type of dog everyone will be looking for but I need a place to call home just like all the other animals here. I don't think I can stay here much longer because I am not happy having to live in a kennel...please help me! Wow, what a stroke of bad luck for me. I was adopted but my previous family could not keep me. Now I have to worry that because of my color, black, nobody will want me. Please don't believe that stupid superstition that I am bad luck. Did you know if I lived in Japan I would be highly sought after because in Japan black cats are considered good luck. I have been here at the shelter for two months and feel so ready to "go home." I know how to use the litter box and am nice with children but I have never lived with dogs. Will you consider allowing me to become part of your family? I am not quite a year old yet so we could have many happy years together.
