Marlon is just about the handsomest guy around and he is ready to find his perfect home!
Marlon is not all looks, he has the personality to match! He is kind, friendly and oh so sweet. He is very loyal to his person and would prefer to spend as much time as possible with his people. That said, Marlon is happy to stay home when his people are at work as long as he is properly exercised.
Marlon is the kind of dog who wants to do whatever his person or people are doing. He loves going for walks and will make a fantastic running partner for an active individual. Marlon does pull quite a bit on leash but is managed using a walking harness. He could use continued support to improve his leash walking abilities.  Marlon would love a fenced backyard but an active home who can properly exercise him would also be a good match. Marlon also loves car rides and makes a fantastic co-pilot for any adventure his adopter would like to take.
Marlon requires a pet free home. He has shown some reactivity on leash to other dogs and would prefer a home where he will not be forced to interact with other dogs regularly. For this reason, Marlon is not a candidate to live in a busy downtown area and would prefer a quiet suburb or country home. Marlon has met quite a few kids and seems to really like them, he would be well suited for a home with older, sturdy children.
Marlon does have some confinement anxiety and can’t be crated. He has proven to be fine when left loose and has not been destructive while in foster care. Marlon would much prefer to be left loose in a safe part of the home when his people are out. He is very respectful of his home and has excellent manners.
Marlon is looking for a home that is looking for a cuddly and affectionate dog who wants to be part of all the things his people do. He prefers to sleep with his people overnight and will otherwise pace if he is kept out of the bedroom.
Overall Marlon is a pretty easy going guy with a lot of love to share. He is looking for a home that will appreciate him for who he is and give him lots of love in return! If you are interested in adopting Marlon, please apply at:
