Merida is a happy girl with exceptional manners. This red American Staffordshire Terrier is about four, weighs 55 pounds, and has been at the Broward County Animal Care since August.

Merida is playful and has a lot of fun on her outings with Lunch Buddy volunteers. She enjoys belly rubs and running around in the park.

According to the staff, Merida is respectful and has excellent table manners: she doesn’t beg for food or jump up on furniture. She would do best as the only dog in the house.
