Marley is very sweet, about 30 lbs, and just wants to be around people. She loves to play, whether it be with a person, tennis ball or a stick. She has a very calm, cuddly side to her as well and is very affectionate! She has endless amounts of kisses to give.
She is about a year old and has been bounced around from home to home with no one giving her the time and attention she deserved. In her most recent home, she was spending 23 hours a day crated and wasn't even allowed outside to potty. She was using puppy pads. She is slightly fearful of unfamiliar things (like air conditioning returns that make sudden noises), but she adjusts quickly. We are working on her initial reaction when introduced to new dogs, which, right now is inappropriate, but once she has gotten to know a new dog, she LOVES to play. She developed some bad habits, but has greatly improved in her foster home!
Marley is potty trained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash.
