With the softest, sweetest expression, Marlene welcomes me to her kennel knowing she’s going out. Likely housetrained she goes potty right away and we’re off to the park. She’s a petite little girl with patchy fur and a tail that curls up into an O. Her patchy coat is likely caused from poor nutrition and having fed a litter or two as its clear she’s been a mom. She seems to like other dogs, happily greeting all who passed our pen clearly wanting to play. Her leash manners could use a little work, or she may do better in a harness; she enjoys treats so with some positive reinforcement training she’ll learn quickly. Sitting when I asked her to, she takes treats gently and then found a ball to play with and had a grand time! She gives chase and then jumps up on the bench with it for a little chomp, and then back down to play some more. Hugs and kisses come next and trust me, she excels at everything she does. This little peanut is adorable! I went inside to get her kennel ready and when I came back out she was waiting quietly, greeting me like I had been gone for days! Petite, fun and loving, Marlene is ready to start a new life as a cherished companion. I can’t imagine a greater joy than watching this little girl blossom with good care. Lucky you can make that happen for her; ask to meet her today.
Behavior – Experience Home
Marlene walks calmly on leash. She was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, wagging tail. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Marlene played tug-of-war with the leash during tag interaction but wasn’t difficult to distract her. She was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. Marlene was not interested in toys and took the rawhide away with a soft body language. She was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful.
Marlene is an active dog she need a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that she can go to an experience home.
