~ It's all about the dogs ~


Linus is an extra-large, extra-friendly guy who wound up at the Merced pound as an unclaimed stray. He's around 6-7 years old, and has a mild form of lupus, which will need ongoing treatment with very inexpensive prednisone to keep it in check.

Linus loves people of all ages, and will walk up and say hello to just about any friendly human. He's very sweet and well-mannered, walks well on a leash, and in general is willing to go along with whatever you want to do. He loves to play ball, so he needs a home with some room to chase a ball about. He's housebroken and very well-mannered in the house.

Linus has a great outlook on life, and he's quite the charmer to all who know him. He gets along well with other dogs, he's very easy going, laid back, and low energy. He shows a little too much interest in cats, so no cats for this big guy.


This is a Level 2 Dog!
