Another amazing thing that Merrill’s adoptive father is doing for her is setting her on play dates with the neighbor’s dog. You can imagine that being trapped behind a steel cage has taken a toll on Merrill’s emotional state and luckily, her new adoptive family is giving her all the freedom she needs!

4. Always Together

One of the most amazing things about Merrill and Taco’s story is that most dog friendships are ruined while living in the shelter. There aren’t that many people who are willing to adopt two dogs at once, and this makes Merrill and Taco really lucky.

3. Unbreakable Bond
