Mercedes is a super sweet senior of about 10 years old that has been waiting for so long for a home.  She came to us in December, 2019, when her owner became homeless and could no longer care for her.  Mercedes was turned in with another dog and we tried for quite a while to get the pair adopted together but it turns out, they weren't all that close.  Mercedes needs a pet-free home, but she sure loves people!  She just can't get enough attention and will flop on her back for a bellyrub from you or lean against you to get you to pet her forever.  She still has lots of energy and loves to run and play, and she'll chase after every toy you throw for her.  She's well-behaved and housebroken, and there's not a thing you won't love about her.  She sure hopes you'll give her a chance!  Call 609-693-1900 or email: to adopt Mercedes.
