Marley #7 (140793)
Marley is an 18 month old yellow spayed female. She weighs 55 pounds and should gain 5, and needs to go to a home with one or more dogs. No cats for Marley, she will chase them. She is heartworm negative and approved for kids 8 and up. Marley is a super sweet girl who will sneak into your heart as soon as you meet her by rolling over and asking for belly rubs. She walks well on leash and and greets other dogs perfectly. Marley loves to play fetch and toys that squeak. She is high energy, but settles nicely once she has run and played a bit. Marley is very agile and can jump a baby gate or a four foot fence if she wants to, but doesn't seek out the opportunity; she needs a home with a fenced yard. She needs a forever family with people who are home more than not and needs a doggy companion. She will go into her crate for a treat or frozen kong, but isn't happy being in there for extended periods of time. Marley is completely house trained and sleeps through the night on a dog bed in her foster's room. She doesn't chew anything she's not supposed to, and knows sit and down.
Update from Marley #7's foster mom - Dec 28, 2015:
Marley has settled nicely back into the routine at her foster's house. Her favorite toy is definitely the lambchop - she even went on a roadtrip for Christmas and was thrilled to find a lambchop at foster Grandma's house too! She rides like a champ in the car, and just curls up into a ball (in the front seat if you'll let her) for a snooze. She's been spending a lot of supervised time with kids slightly under 10 in the last few months, and seems to enjoy their company, and isn't concerned about the hustle and bustle they generally bring with them, so we've adjusted her kid-approved age to 8 and up. Since she is a smart girl who can open doors, kids need to be careful about door control, especially into un-fenced areas.
Marley really is a wonderful dog. I say it a lot, but everyone who meets her falls easily in love. She's sweet and easy going when you are home with her. She goes with the flow of the household - loves to play and romp and run and chase, and then settles in for a nap on the nearest couch.
