TO BE KILLED - 4/21/2018
Marlin seems a little serious, quiet in his kennel, not very playful with the caretakers yet – but very eager to go out & get some #delicious
treats. Marlin even rolls on his back for belly rubs Marlin is described as friendly, well behaved & playful & very gentlemanly with the females he met in #playgroup
. Although he was not introduced to male dogs, he nears them just fine. Described as `very trainable` this sweet middle-aged boy would love to find a home of his own.

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
& attractive bachelor. He is quite obedient, food motivated & 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 & a gentleman. Marlin did not play yet with me but he clearly enjoyed caresses and butt scratches. At some point, he forgot all about his solemness & rolled on his side for belly rubs. Marlin will do just that once he is home with you, well fed, safe & LOVED.
