Mercedes is a 5 year old terrier/whippet mix at the Woodford Humane Society in Versailles, KY. She has to be the most patient dog we have ever had, because get this: Mercedes has been waiting for a home since January 21, 2009. Not a typo; her 4 year anniversary with us is coming up in January. We think part of the reason Mercedes gets overlooked is that she is a very athletic (and bouncy) dog, and when new people come into the kennel, her first reaction is often to show off how high she can jump. She’s not crazy, we swear! Once she’s out of the kennel, she’s more interested in belly rubs than anything else.
Mercedes has already spent 3 holiday seasons at our adoption center, and the best gift EVER, for her and for us, would be for her to finally be in her forever home by Christmas. She’s looking for a single-pet, indoor home and would make a great running partner or agility dog. Her petfinder profile is here and her adoption fee has been sponsored!
