Usually, when we ask our friends who volunteer daily in the Shelters what they know about a dog we have selected to feature they tell us the dog is great/friendly/happy/would make a wonderful family member etc. BUT today, when we asked them to tell us about this week’s featured pup, MIERCA, the consensus was that she is essentially a dream come true. Actually, the exact quote from one of our favorite volunteers was, “She is effing hilarious.” Which means we’ve got a gem on our hands folks!
This five-year-old pittie mix has personality oozing out of her. *see photos below*. This girl literally draws a crowd when she is out and about…the true definition of a show-stopper. Mierca is happy to be in the spotlight and has no problem with seven adults gathering around to chase her, play keep away, or get her going by giving her a tap on the bum to start her off spinning in circles! She even happily jumped into a giant water trough and submerged her cute little face so that only her eyes were showing. Mierca is incredible. How this gal has not been scooped up is beyond us!
Mierca is listed at five-years-old, but she is SUPER playful. Seems like this girl is planning on staying forever young. Even though she has a real zest for life and enjoys playing, she is not hyper, just active…which is ideal. And, to seal the deal….Mierca is even on the curvy side. Girl is definitely NOT missing the feed sack!!!
I’m sorry but how can anyone resist a dog that cheeses SO hard for the camera that her eyes are closed?
ALSO noteworthy, for all of you out there who currently have a dog at home and might be looking for a sibling for that dog, Mierca has had multiple kennelmates and has done well with them all. Of course, a dog intro at the shelter is always recommended before adopting to ensure everyone gets along!
While Mierca is waiting for the perfect family, she is receiving shelter enrichment from our friends at One Love. This means they are providing her with time out of her kennel to be socialized. She is learning basic commands from them, and receiving enrichment items in the kennel to keep her mind busy. Because Mierca is sponsored under the Shelter Dog Program she will come with a FREE microchip as well as FREE post-adoption training to aid in a smooth transition into the home as well as family bonding. Let’s be honest here, we all ❤ free stuff…
So visit Mierca at MCACC West and see if she is the girl for you. Her ID is A3093129.
