This friendly, half-moon clad face belongs to Marcus. He is an affectionate and mellow guy who loves leisurely walks and stopping to smell the roses. Marcus never met a morsel he didn't like; in addition to dreaming about meeting his forever family, he also dreams about hot dogs...a lot. Marcus loves his cuddles and head scratches; he can be hard to resist with his head in your lap! The ideal adoptive home for Marcus will be mellow, yet full of love and attention. Older kids would be best.
Marcus came to us after charming the staff and volunteers at the municipal shelter during his stay there. Marcus is eager to please and is a champ in his Good Canine Citizen training. He's a very polite guy on his leash and is learning lots of other skills to show his new family. He'll take a little while to warm up to you, but once he does, Marcus can't contain his happiness to see you. Get ready for lots of tail-wagging and wiggles!
Despite not being cherished in his short life, happy and resilient Marcus doesn't hold a grudge, and he's excited to be your best friend. Will you give Marcus the tenderness and devotion he so deserves?
