Marley came to us via a young couple who were walking their dog in San Diego and this bedraggled heavily matted flea/tick ridden little dog followed them. That was New Years Eve, 2016, he has been in foster care since.
Marley loves to play, and would be fine with other small laid back FEMALE dog once he gets to know her, but he is very choosy about who he plays with. Marley really LOVES his toys, if you come to visit Marley and want to be his best friend, just bring him a squeaky toy, he will love you. He is crate trained, and walks very nicely on the leash, is not destructive in the home and is housebroken.
Marley likes to always see you approaching him, when picking him up he likes the gentle touch, although he has greatly improved, he just needs to trust. We have no idea of what Marley has been through. He does know his come, sit and stay. He will shine if given the opportunity to be signed up for further training in obedience classes.
Marley has been around older children, and is fine with guidance from adults who have pack leadership qualities, best in a home with no toddlers and possibly with someone who is works part-time. Marley attended his first small pack walk and we are so happy to say he was very well behaved, well done Marley we are proud of you, now young "man" it is your job to pick your new family. If you would like to meet Marley and feel you are qualified, he will be happy to interview you. Marley is being fostered in Gilroy.
