Hello from best boy Marshmallow! This handsome guy is happily searching for his perfect dog-experienced home… could it be you?
Marshmallow is a lover of all people. Snuggling on the couch with a good movie and his favourite person is his ideal evening. Even though he is excellent with all humans, he is very large and excitable and isn’t always gentle when it comes to taking snacks, so we are looking for a home with no young children.
When it comes to other dogs, Marshmallow loves a friend to play and wrestle with. He acts like a big puppy when around canine pals so he would love a friend similar in his size and play style. Marshmallow has shown guarding behaviour towards other animals so toys, bones and food should be picked up when other dogs are around. He eats meals and chews bones in his crate to make sure there is no conflict with other dogs in the foster home. We would also recommend continuing to do positive trade games with Marshmallow to work on this guarding behaviour.
Marshmallow is food motivated and very smart so he would be an excellent pooch for training classes! He will happily work for his kibble but this guy is definitely not picky when it comes to food. Marshmallow knows to sit and wait for his dinner and happily eats his meals from a slow feeding bowl. He is a strong boy but walks excellent on a no pull walking harness. He is fully house trained.
