Marla is 4 years old, female (approx. DOB 12-5-19), 49 lbs., vetted, is or will be spayed, and microchipped.

Marla has been a mama; we LOVE our mama dogs!

In my current home (2 small dogs, 2 adults, rural, little alone time):
• I am good with dogs my size and up
• No cats please; I like to chase them – it’s fun!
• I love all people; I don’t know my size and get very excited; I could accidentally knock smaller children over
• I have medium+ energy
• I am socially outgoing with my humans but I could easily with fast movements etc; I am still learning the new world. I am social with men and women.
• I would do best in a home with a dog my size or larger, with proper introductions, that is okay with another higher-energy dog that likes to rough house once we get to know each other. I am confident and love to play!
• I am crate trained (I tolerate it because I have to) and am potty trained; I’ll ring the bell to let you know I want to go out!
• I have not been a chewer and haven’t been possessive of my food or toys
• I am currently not left alone a lot and haven’t displayed any separation anxiety.
• I am a quieter girl
• I pull a little on the leash but it’s manageable; I am still learning!
• I sleep in my crate at night right now because there are small dogs in the home
• I know Sit, Kennel, No, and ring my bell to go out
• I am a really sweet dog that LOVES affection and approval! I love to cuddle and once I trust my new home I will let you hold me like a baby. I am going to make a phenomenal baby for someone!
• I would be okay in a rural or city home, but I do appreciate the quietness as I sometimes get scared by outside noises. 
• My ideal home would be with someone patient, someone without or with dogs my size or bigger for me to play with, and/or someone who will take me on long walks or runs.
• I enjoy long walks and playtime with my stuffy! I like to play keep-away and when my human is done playing with me I’ll “hit the ceiling with my stuffy” game to amuse myself. I love my soft food (my humans aren’t sure why my teeth are grinded down/nonexistent)
• I am very receptive to the word “No” and really love to make people happy! I am a great dog and very loving towards people!
