Literally, every single person that meets Merinda says “oh my g-d, she is the SWEETEST dog”. We think you will agree. We sure do. And even the shelter did!

When we were at the shelter, the staff begged us to please take Merinda. She is only one year old and has clearly had an extraordinarily hard young life. Merinda was found as a stray on the streets of Compton. She was in absolutely horrible shape, starving, missing big patches of fur, covered in fleas and her eye injured. She was brought to the shelter and there was just zero chance of anyone adopting this little dog in this condition. The staff pleaded for us to step in, save her and turn her life around—to be the ONE good thing that has happened to Merinda in her life. So this is where Merinda’s fairy tale begins. We can’t wait to see the healing and love begin and for this dog to get the forever home she never dreamed she would have.

If you'd like to take this dog home for a 1 week trial adoption please apply to adopt
