Marley was immediately brought to be vetted and then on to a great Houston foster home to receive pure love and begin his education. It turns out that Marley, (at 16 weeks old and about 8 lbs..anticipated to be approximately 15 lbs when full grown) is such a cuddle-bug...he's so sweet and endearing! Marley snuggles up and is a cuddly lap dog...and then watch out - puppy energy! Marley is so playful and so engaging that it's become a fun and rewarding experience for his foster mom.
Marley is cute as a button and very entertaining. He is like a blank slate...open and curious about everything around him. If Marley continues this regimen of socialization that promote positive relationships with other dogs and bonding with humans, he will become a well-adjusted and well-behaved adult companion.
Marley is a beautiful Italian Greyhound/Schnauzer mix puppy (we don't see the Schnauzer but we do know that his mom was a Schnauzer mix) with the blackest of black and a pure white chest. Due to fleas and extreme stress while on death row, Marley (and his siblings) have varying degrees of dermatitis which results in hair loss. This is easily remedied with great nutrition, no fleas and lots of love and gentle handling resulting in calm within the puppy.
Marley's calm yet silly demeanor is just who he is...he just appears to be more entertaining than your average puppy. If he is treated kindly with clear behavioral guidelines, Marley will become a well-adjusted guy who respects his people as his leaders. This is the kind of family we're searching for for this very sweet puppy. We also feel it's very important that he is provided with exercise and mental stimulation. Marley would be overjoyed with walks/hikes along Colorado paths and enjoying the sunshine.
We'd like a family who spends lots of time at home and chooses to include a fuzzy companion in their activities. Marley can be taught that the car is a fun place that leads to great adventures out in the community and can therefore accompany his family just about anywhere.
Marley may be arriving in Boulder unfixed due to his very young age. Farfel's requested that he be fixed prior to transport. If this isn't the case, Farfel's will be happy to cover all costs in regard to Marley's neuter and microchip.
Marley appears to be a non-shedder (or a very light shedder). Lots of sudsy baths and grooming combined with great nutrition (coconut oil is a great addition) will result in this puppy's coat becoming healthy and silky-soft.
Marley will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 8/19/16. If interested in this sweet and very devoted best friend who knows that real men wear pink, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to email@example.com or fax to 303-443-7730.
