(Web viewers: Please watch a short video of Marco below!)

Marco is a sleek, handsome, affectionate, enthusiastic, energetic, athletic fun little guy. He''s house trained and walks well on leash. Marco is a big dog in a little dog body. He loves play but he also settles down to sit in your lap to watch television or read the paper with you.

His perfect home would have a fenced yard and be one that would include him in their daily activities. He''d love to have a dog friend or be part of a pack. Respectful children over 6 years old would be best.

In his foster home he lives with a large dog and a couple of small dogs and he engages them all in play. He''s also respectful of the four cats he''s living with. Marco likes stuffed toys and loves to play fetch although in his enthusiasm doesn''t always bring the toy back. He loves to run zoomies in the garden with his dog friends and is always up for a game.

If this dog sounds like it might be the dog for you please contact his foster mom, Lucinda~
