Hello world, I am Marley. Sometimes the caregiver here calls me Bob, I have no idea why but it seems to make sense to them :) I come from a big family where there were many other dogs but unfortunately all of us had to pack our bags and come to Dogtown because our family had some “stuff” to deal with. So here I am, waiting for my new family to come and fall in love with me.

If I have to be honest, I have some “stuff” of my own that I need to deal with too so I don’t think I am quite ready to be adopted yet but I am working really hard and my trainer is working even harder to help me get over all my issues.

I am very social with other dogs and I love to play! However, I am a bit anxious and I struggle to settle down. I havnt quite mastered the 4-paws-on-the-floor trick but I am working on that. I have some insecurities which shows when I meet new people and I sometimes forget that my bed is for sleeping on and not a toy but I desperately want to be part of a family who can love me and help guide me and keep me on the right track, once I get the all-clear from the Dogtown peeps of course.

At the moment I think my perfect home would be a child-less and cat-less home but who knows, one of these days all my “stuff” will be a thing of the past and then I might be able to join a big family like I used to have.

All I ask is some time, love and patience (and treats!) and in return, I will shower you with kisses and unconditional love.
