MERENGUE A GENTLE SWEEETHEART LOOKING FOR A DANCE PARTNER ID# 61550 2 YRS OLD ACC INTAKE DATE 05-01-2019 ** FOUND TIED TO POLE ** A volunteer writes If you prefer a dance partner who'll stick to the classic rhythm of his namesake then move aside because this Merengue is all about being as creative as possible and he'll never choose a simple two-step when he could take 10 instead! A gorgeous force of nature who barrels through life with a wagging tail Merengue can't wait to meet new doggie friends and enjoys running around with his people pals too You won't find a bigger fan or better sharer of tug toys and after a good play session he mellows into a gentle sweetheart happy to accept a few treats then lay down by your side for some well-earned rest Friendly fun and full of life Merengue's already aced his behavior assessment and now he's ready to wow a lucky family with his happy energetic ways So there's only one question left to askwanna dance?
