It was known to the shelter that dogs brought in pairs like these are harder to adopt, as many people are not ready to take on two dogs simultaneously.
As a result, they started listing Merrill and Taco individually on their webpage in the hopes of finding them, independent families. Senior animals are also more difficult to find households for, therefore Taco drew little response. That was not the case for Merrill. Photo Credit: Facebook/Merrill and Taco
