Marley's Story...
Approximate Age/Weight: 3 years old (DOB 2-06-09) and 40 lbs
Good With Kids – very likely
Housetrained – Yes
Walks Nicely On A Leash – Yes
Knows Basic Commands – appears he knows a few
Energy Level (Couch Potato, Moderate or High) - appears to be moderate

Arrival story: Marley was surrendered by his family who had to move out of state to live with and care for an ailing father. They couldn't take Marley
With them.

Personality: Marley is pure love and joy. He seems to be a well-adjusted boy who gets along with everyone. Marley is the perfect size if you want a compact Yellow Lab! He is adorable and sure to put a smile on your face! Marley likes people and seems to be good with other dogs. We need to test him with cats. He is housetrained and walks nicely on a leash. Marley seems to know a few commands and is very treat-motivated so he will be easy to train. Marley would make a great therapy dog, too! We are still assessing Marley's energy level. He was recently neutered and has to be kept calm. Marley will be ready for adoption 2-23-12, but we are taking applications now

Forever home: Marley will likely fit into a variety of situations given his easy going nature. We will post more information as we learn more.


Pre-Adoption Application: To be considered for a dog, it is best to submit a pre-adoption application. The Pre-Adoption Application can be downloaded from our website -

Waggin' Tails Adoption Information: Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue has a standard adoption fee of $225 for adult dogs. Different adoption fees apply for older dogs, small breeds and puppies - $125 for senior dogs, $275 for small breed dogs and $250 for puppies, plus a $50 deposit which is returned upon proof of spay/neuter at six months of age. Our adoption process includes an application, vet reference checks, and a home visit.

We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check for the dates of our next adoption events. To meet a dog in person, please see our event calendar for the latest information. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group).

Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marley, a Northville Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Northville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Northville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Northville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Northville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Northville paves the way for another one to be saved.
