Merlin (formerly Jacob) from Darlington

Known to Darlington Dog's Trust staff as Baby Jacob this handsom lad, Merlin, will soon be having his first birthday. After a very poor start in life he is now a very fit, healthy, active and happy boy who lives for making friends and going for long walks every day. Even the cat can't get enough of him!
