Mercer was born in 2016 and was found as a stray. This handsome boy can be a nervous guy, so it takes some time for him to build trusting relationships with people. And while Mercer is shy with people, when he bonds with a dog he's willing to go with them almost anywhere, because they boost his confidence. He's done well with all the dogs he's met at the Sanctuary.
At Dogtown, he's working on building relationships with his human friends and has come a long way toward getting comfortable with people who take the extra time with him. He is still very nervous in new situations and environments, and we're working with him at his pace to help him become more comfortable with the world around him.
