Merri is a two year old solid black female. Merri is not only powerful and intense in protection but she's also tenacious. That's not very common in a female German Shepherd. What stands out in our minds even more so is she is a natural performer. She can't help it. It's what she does. You can see this in her personality, but she demonstrates it best in obedience. Just watch either of her obedience videos and you will understand.
