Merle is quite the handsome, 3-year-old black male with a deep white throat, whelped June 20, 2004. His sire is Teamster, making his grand sire Molotov (that's where he got that beautiful white-marked neck) and his dam is Nebo Silverstone. Merle was not individually registered with the NGA, as from the get-go it was obvious that Merle just wanted to be someone's companion pet. His breeder/owner describes Merle as kinda like a bumpkin, as this big world has him fascinated...everything! Merle is learning about home life, and LOVES to play with his stuffies! Merle is cat tolerant but has not been introduced to small dogs yet.
