I'm Marley!! I'm 8-years-old and full of LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. Some might call me a shadow although my fur is completely the opposite colour. I've come to Lab Rescue by no fault of my own. My owner has become ill and can no longer care for me. I am sad because I am a people dog but I know there is a new family out there to love me.....maybe that's you... let's find out....
I have great house manners and enjoy snuggling on the couch or with my owner in bed. I'm relaxed and have full access to the house when no one is home and I don't get myself into trouble. The door bell is a signal to PARTY! I get so excited when visitors home over. I may jump up to say hello which I know is not great so please help me out with a reminder. I get this whole body wag going and hop and dance on the spot to celebrate the new arrival. Once the initial commotion is over I settle in for pats and love.
My exercise has been extremely scattered lately and I tend to pull on leash to sniff everything. I'm told there is a special harness that can help dogs like me learn to walk without pulling, maybe my new family could try that with me. Coupled with a regular exercise schedule, I should be your best walking companion in no time.
I have been exposed to kids but have not lived with them on a regular basis. I am good with other dogs as well but at this point in my life I think I would like older respectful kids and no other dogs in my new home. Cats are unknown to me but since I like to chase small animals, it would be best they are not in my new home either.
I will need extra caution around open doors and no be allowed off leash in open areas until my recall skills are 100 % reliable and a good strong bond is built with my new owner. I like the game catch-me-if -you-can but my humans don't seem to like it as much thus, applicants with invisible fences or no fences at all will not be considered for me.
Well, I think that's the important stuff...oh yeah! I like to be a lap dog and will love you forever and ever. Can I be your shadow?
