Cryslen's Worth the Wait "Merit"

Merit now lives with Murphy (formally Penny) and the Farrar family in North Carolina.

Merit is the puppy I kept from my litter out of Jasmine and Rufous. She is very outgoing with tons of bone. Merit has a beautiful topline and front and rear angulation. She is currently taking obedience class and just finished her first puppy class. She has also started tracking classes and one basic agility foundation class.

I wanted to name my puppy Merit, so I came up with the "Worth" theme to go with it. Worth the Wait worked well because I had been waiting a while for my puppy from Jasmine.
