Marley’s owner says:
I have a 9 year old black lab who I adopted from a coworker. The coworker couldn't keep her due to his mother's allergy and she had to move in with them. We didn't know at first, but she is very noise sensitive and so ill suited to my apartment lifestyle. The footsteps of my upstairs neighbors cause her anxiety to no end. I think she believes the footstep are thunder, which I know she is afraid of. The poor thing can't relax, play, or sleep in peace. Both my apartment complex and I have tried to talk to the neighbors, but to no avail.
I've tried crating, Thundershirts, calming scents, radio, tv, fans, extra exercise, Prozac, and sedatives. Nothing seems to be working. But the moment we leave the apartment and climb in the car, she goes back to the sweet, lovable dog I know.
Health-wise, she is spayed and I just paid for her annual shots. Heartworm negative. She's great with children of all ages and good with other dogs. I'm not sure she's met a cat, but she has a quiet and gentle temperament, so I think she'd be fine.
Marley's adoption fee is $200.
