Marlo is a very pretty, short-haired Border Collie mix. Marlo's owner brought her to us for help in finding a new home. Marlo is now about 4-4 1/2 yr. old. Marlo is very sweet but she is SHY GIRL!. This is quite common in Border Collie behavior. Marlo needs to have several visits at the shelter from interested parties before going home so that she can begin the bonding process. Because Marlo has a shy nature, we believe she will be best in a quiet, adult environment. Marlo is a DEAR SOUL. Please make sure you have lots of gentleness and affection for Marlo. Because she came to us as a young dog, Marlo will need supervision in house training. We recommend crating at night and when she is home alone in the day (in the beginning). If you are interested in Marlo, please call the Amarillo SPCA at 806-622-0555 or visit the shelter at 11901 S. Coulter.
