Hi everyone! My name is Marshall. My foster mom told me that “every dog has their day”, my day was when I was pulled from the shelter. I am now living the good life with my foster mom and my two human foster brothers. I love all people, young and old. I really like to snuggle whether it be on my foster mom and brothers or with a nice soft blanket. I love to play with my foster brothers and my toys (especially the stuffed ones). I can play a good game of fetch. I also enjoy playing tug-o-war, I have a unique way of playing that though, I lay on the floor and my brothers pull me around, check out my video on my profile page and the Ruff Start Rescue Facebook page. My foster mom says I play ‘keep away’ very well too. Going for walks is one of my favorites! I hear my mom jingle her keys and I get all excited, foster mom says I bounce like a rabbit. If you say the word ‘walk’ I will be by the door waiting or sometimes I like to run around in circles. I also love going for car rides, my foster mom makes me sit in the back seat, she said that I have to be safe, so I stick my head out the window and let the air go through my flappy jowls. My foster mom tells me I am such an empathetic, smart, funny, loving boy. I know all basic commands. I only want to please my family. The only issue I have is I can be selective when it comes to my furry friends so I will need slow and proper intros. My foster mom is putting me in training to help me with socialization due to the lack of that in my past. I also have a high prey drive so I wouldn’t do well with cats or small dogs. I am crate trained, house trained and potty trained. I have to have a home with a fenced in yard and I wouldn't do good in an apartment or townhome. All I want is to find my forever family that I can live out my years with, could that be you? I will love you forever!!
