Names: Merlin and Toby
Breed: Cocker Spaniel
Age: 7 years
About the animals: Toby and Merlin are best friends. They have lived together all of their lives. Their previous owner lost her home and could no longer care for these handsome and charming boys. Both are kid, cat and people friendly. Merlin is high-energy and full of play. His brother Merlin balances him out with a mellow sweetness. Center staff hope to have the two of them adopted together.
