Kivisilmän Z (01.06.2016)

Merita is a very active Newfoundland, always ready for a walk outside or for a training session. She absolutely loves water and ends up walking in the river for most of our walks. Merita is very easy to train as she is easily motivated by either play (tug or fetch) or treats (anything will do!).

Merita is extremely social. If it was up to her, she would meet and greet every single person and dog we meet on our walks. She gets along with everyone!

Merita has been generally healthy so far. She had a traumatic neck muscle injury spring 2017, but has recovered from it well with no lasting impact.
She is a very active Newfoundland and loves to swim in rivers. 
She has a good coat and good skin and we can leave her to dry on her own. She does not have any allergies.
