Merlin – Male in Texas – Foster needed

Cane Corso | Crate Trained | House Trained | Female Dog Safe | Kid Safe 15+

Merlin (was Comanche) is Carmen’s brother, and came to CCR a few months ago needing a lot of veterinary care. Sadly, their owner lost their job and became homeless during covid and was bouncing from hotel to hotel and eventually ended up living in their car with both dogs. CCR supporters and another rescue came together to place the owner and both dogs in a hotel short term until we were able to get the dogs the needed veterinary care and find temporary placement for them. Both dogs have now been spayed/neutered and had their cherry eyes repaired, but sadly neither carmen’s or Merlin’s cherry eye surgery was fully successful so they both need an additional surgery ( please consider donating to the fundraiser under Carmen’s post!) . Merlin would love nothing more to have a foster or foster-to-adopt family to help him get through his second procedure. He is 2 years old (born dec 2019), and a little rough around the edges but very sweet. He will need someone who is willing to continue working on his training and socialization. He will be considered for families with older children and 1 other large breed female dog, as he has not been exposed to small dogs or cats, and does exhibit high prey drive.  Breed experience would be preferred. We will soon be posting updated photos with his eye repair completed.
