found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Marshall is a great dog and loves nothing more than being around people and being a part of whatever is going on. He is a young adult dog approximately 2 years old and is a very happy boy. He is a moderately active dog and would love to be part of a family and would have no issue with other pets in the home. Marshall currently weighs 36 lbs.
Here is what else his foster family had to say:
Marshall is such a happy boy. He has met people of all shapes and sizes and of all age groups and he has proven to be friendly with everyone. He is not shy at all and goes up to everyone to say "hello". When I first got Marshal he shed quite a bit, mostly his winter coat. After the first week and a lot of grooming, his shedding is down to a minimal amount and hardly noticeable. I would describe his energy level as moderate. When he has been in his crate for a little while he is very excited to see you but when he gets out, he mellows soon after. He appears to be a very happy and healthy boy.
He has met a number of people and has proven sociable and friendly in groups of up to 15 and from all different age ranges. He is friendly with everyone he meets, is not shy at all and loves meeting new people and wanting to say "hello". He has been really good around other dogs while on walks and at the dog park. He has been around cats who he was curious about and tried to get close to, but the cats were not having any of it. I believe he would be fine in a house with cats, he seemed to have a passing interest in them.
He will bark when I leave the house and if he is in his crate and I leave. This usually only lasts a little while. I live in an apartment and have had no complaints regarding noise. I believe he settles pretty quickly and there has been no signs of anxiety present. Nothing so far has really scared him - he seems bomb proof! His favourite things to do are go for longer walks and to play at the dog park. Generally he is very quiet and well behaved in the home.
He will counter surf a little bit but it hasn't been an issue. He is good about backing away when told "No". He knows "sit" and "come" and we are now working on "stay" and "drop it". He is fully house trained. So long as he gets adequate walking time and you keep him on a regular feeding schedule he should be fine. He is crate trained, he may at times be in the crate for upwards of 8 hours. As long as there are toys and things for him to chew on in the crate he is fine. Marshall is really good on a leash. He doesn't pull and is easy to guide. He is really good in the car and he rides in the back seat usually. He will spend a bit of time looking out the window before curling up and sleeping.
If you are looking for a dog who will be your companion and a new addition to the family, Marshall is the right fit for you. He loves to be around people and be part of the family. He will definitely thrive in a house that has time to take him for lots of walks and play with him. Marshall would do well in a family home or as a companion for one person. He has been an awesome foster dog and I have no doubt that he will be a wonderful addition to any family lucky enough to adopt him.
If you would like to make Marshall an addition to your family, please submit an application for consideration.
