He is a Blue Merle who actually started life as a show dog. Unfortunately, after some early success, he became a neglected member of a hoarder’s home. He is now 6 years old and has lots of energy, but because of his neglect, Marble needs some house training and some help in focusing his energy. He may be best suited to an active home where he can get lots of exercise, focused attention and the patient training. Training will be particularly challenging for Marble because we believe that he is mostly deaf. In his foster home, Marble has gotten along with all the other dogs and has been friendly with all the people he has met. He is competitive at feeding time so this will need to be managed if he is placed in a home with other dogs.
Marble has been heartworm and Lyme tested and is up to date on all vaccinations. He will be neutered and microchipped before being adopted. A fenced yard is required for Marble. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
