Adopt a dog



Marlo is a lovely strong boy who wants lots of affection from his new owners. He has mastered the basics of training, but any potential owner would need to commit to carry on with this.

He can be a little shy and wary of new people, however once you have gained his trust he will shower you with affection. Despite his size he does want to be a lapdog! He suffers from separation anxiety so would need someone who is home most of the time and prepared to help him gain more confidence on being on his own.  He has started work with a behaviourist which we are prepared to help carry on to give Marlo the best foundation.

Marlo does have a tendency to chase cats, and is showing reactivity to dogs whilst out walking. So he would have to be the only pet in the house. He’s not had much experience with children.

Marlo is the softest, cuddliest boy you could meet and would love a sofa to cuddle up on and someone to love him as much as he loves them. If your the one please contact the office directly on 01224 208989 or click on “Request to adopt Marlo now”.
