This beautiful boxer/mastiff pup was found running stray in the Lake Merritt area of Oakland.  Though young and untrained, Merritt is remarkably quiet, calm, and well-behaved!  Merritt is a sweet friendly boy who seems grateful to be saved.  He thumps his tail enthusiastically whenever a person enters his room, and gladly rolls over for belly rubs.  Merritt will be fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped for adoption.  If you'd like to meet him, please fill out an application at
