Story
We found Marley dumped on a gravel road over 11 years ago. She was a young pup, who was never claimed upon looking for her owner. She has been around other dogs and done very well with proper introduction. She also lives with two cats and does not mind them. The reason we need to rehome her is because a recent incident regarding our 11 month old. She has been fine with him until recently, when she nipped him. Since he started crawling, it's been stressful for her. We never had her around a baby until now. She’s an older adult, and would do best with a family of without kids, or with older children who have experience around animals. Marley has never been a biter, even with strangers holding her, so it breaks my heart to learn that she is uncomfortable with infants. She is potty trained to go out and do her business and come back in. If you are gone longer than 4 hours, I recommend kenneling her, because she does not have accidents when kenneled.
