About Marlin

Hello name is Marlin.  I am a 9 month-old neutered male, black and tan boy with a docked tail and natural ears.  I am an active guy with a strong will to learn and play.  I am looking for a forever owner who will give me a stable home environment and will work with me to grow into an awesome young adult.  One of my favorite things is to play with my foster brother and run around on the farm.  I am a bit scared when meeting new dogs but friendly once I get to know them! My mom says I am also good with cows, chickens, goats, ducks and turkeys! Although the turkeys scare me a little bit. I like to watch my foster brother herd the cows but they are far too big for me to mess with! 

I learn new commands super fast. My foster parents have been working on clicker training me and I already know all my basic commands including a few tricks! 

I am house trained but that’s not to say I wouldn’t have the odd accident in a new environment. I love my crate but I’m not that destructive out of it. Although I like to put things in my mouth just once to test if it’s edible. 

My Foster parents refer to me as a bit of a kangaroo when we go on walks and apparently I’m meant to walk all proper. But that’s super hard when I have all these fun dogs to play with here! When I am alone I am good on the lead because it’s boring.

I need a forever owner who can keep up to date with my training and keep teaching me new things because I love to learn! But mostly I would love someone to cuddle with on the sofa in the evenings. I love to be touching my people at all times.

This Is My Story
