A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Serious as a Beaver. So quiet in his kennel but ready when you are. This is Marlin who so knows that my pocket is full of treats. He hovers around me, then sits at once with an anxious look on his face when he sees my hand holding a dry liver nugget. He can be eager taking treats but corrects nicely after “counseling”. Marlin needs a little more meat around the bones and he will be one handsome and attractive bachelor. He is quite obedient, food motivated and likely as a result, very trainable. Marlin is a good walker, likely house trained(very) and polite with other dogs neared. He meets for now only gals in playgroups with his peers where he has been polite, playful and a gentleman. Marlin did not play yet with me but he clearly enjoyed caresses and butt scratches. At some point(not caught on camera), he forgot all about his solemness and rolled on his side for belly rubs. I bet that Marlin will do just that once he is home with you, well fed, safe and mostly loved. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
