MARLEY HAS BEEN ADOPTED
Reference no – D2020-039
Age: 2 years old
Breed: Beagle cross Lab
Fostered in: South Wales
Health Issues: None known
Marley is a very loving, cuddly but strong and active dog. He benefits from plenty of obedience training to improve his focus on his handler. Marley has lots of energy and enjoys a run around the fields. He is typical beagle and loves to follow scents, he will have his nose to the ground for an entire walk if he could but a bit of focus training along the way really helps him. Marley loves to snuggle up for a cuddle and loves being stroked and brushed.
People: Can be a bit nervous/unsure at first but then he loves everyone. Once he knows you, he loves being cuddled, brushed.
Can live with children: Not tested. Marley is strong and boisterous though and could easily knock smaller children over.
Can live with Cats: Not tested but he will try to chase a cat if he sees one whilst out.
Can live with other dogs: Marley gets on well with all the other dogs in his foster home and is fine with most dogs he sees when out on walks. He has not actually met any dogs whilst out yet. Whilst Marley likes the dogs in his foster home, he would be happy to be an only dog as long as he has plenty of human contact and is kept busy.
In the home: Marley is house trained and has his food and sleeps in a crate at night. Marley is very active both mentally and physically, so gets bored easily. He can be destructive (chewing things, emptying bins) if bored so needs to be kept mentally stimulated. He loves toys and is not aggressive with them and will happily sharer with the other dogs. Marley also needs lots of obedience training. He has only been fed in his crate currently but does not appear to be food aggressive. Marley has not been left yet, apart from overnight when he sleeps happily and quietly in his crate.
Out and about: Marley is doing well with his recall training which will need to be continued. He loves his walks but can easily be distracted if he sees another dog. He has only travelled in the car to visits to the vets and is fine in the car. He is fine in the vets but very wary being handed over, so a slip lead or half choke collar should be used to avoid him escaping.
Marley is up to date with flea and worming treatment, due to lock down restrictions he is awaiting second vaccination and neutering.
