General information Marley is still waiting for an offer of a forever home and we can't understand why he hasn't been snapped up! Marley is a very friendly, affectionate boy and a firm favourite with our dog walkers. A bit of excitement at the beginning of his walk (all very normal) but soon settles down and walks well and is very easily managed/kept in line using treats. A typical Lab - will do anything for a treat!!! He does jump up sometimes when excited or greeting you and this is something that we have been working on and great progress has already been made. You can see by these photos that he is an intelligent boy that listens to commands and is easily trained. He is a lovely boy and deserves a loving, forever home with a family that will love and cherish him.

Health Good

Type of home that would suit: An active family that are happy to complete his training.

Note to adopters:

Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Toto don't show up in rescue. We don't get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful, completely well trained, perfect dog. Many never had good veterinary care, kind or consistent training, or sufficient company. Some have lived outside, or left alone for many hours every day. When rehomed they're scared or depressed and anxious and will act out of character but time, patience and love will solve this. When you take on a rescue dog you need to be 100% committed to making it work, “ride the storm” but don't ever give up. We at rescue never give up on a dog. We know that a dog is a living being, with a spirit and a heart and feelings. Our dogs are not commodities, things, or garbage. They are part of life’s sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as Lassie, Rin Tin Tin or Toto. So please, please don't come to rescue in the hopes of getting a "bargain," or "a fully trained dog”. Come to Rescue to give, to love, to save a life -- and to mend your own spirit. For Rescue will reward you in ways you never thought possible. We can promise you this -- a rescue dog will make you a better person.
