found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Unfortunately, like Pie, Marco tested heart worm-positive, and therefore, will not be ready for adoption until he completes his treatments for this disease. Marco is crate-trained and eats and sleeps in his crate. However, he is always happy to snuggle up right next to his favorite human. Marco would be fine in a home with other dogs, and would do best in this setting-or at least best when he shares his company with someone most times. Marco would not be happy or content to be alone for long periods of time. He is not alpha or aggressive, but is quite social and loves to hang out with his canine or human pack. Marco has shown an interest in the cat on the other side of the fence. A test has yet to be done to see how Marco would react to a cat in his near vicinity, so might be considered unfriendly to cats.

****Update****In addition to the heart worm health issue, it seems this lounging in the sun behavior has its advantages and disadvantages. Just like us, they can develop skin caner. Sweet Marco had a couple of suspect tumors removed and sent off for evaluation for cancer. The results were not as we would have hoped and one came back positive for hemangiosarcoma. These are blood-fed tumors that can be benign-requiring removal when bleeding cannot be stopped, or cancerous-requiring removal for cure. If these cancerous tumors are allowed to remain, they will eventually metastasize/spread to internal organs; often times, the spleen, heart and lungs. Marco is prone to these tumors, benign and cancerous, and will require the removal of any tumors that develop to remain cancer-free.
