If you are looking for a mature, cuddle bug, Marley’s your guy! Not only does he like adults, he’s good with children, dogs and we’ve been told cats too. Marley came to GRRMF when his owners could no longer afford to care for him.
Before he can be available for adoption, GRRMF will get him some dental care for his gums and teeth and examine a few other lumps and bumps that need to be checked out. Given his age, he does have some arthritis and his attending vet suggests a diet to help relieve some of the pressure on his joints.
Marley is adapting to his new foster home and trying to win over his foster fur sister, at this point she isn’t giving him the time of day and his feelings seem to be hurt a bit. Never fear, his foster mom is here to give him plenty of hugs and loving.
This very affectionate boy loves being near his foster family especially when they are inside the air conditioned house. He’s a calm guy who enjoys belly rubs, car rides, grooming and playing with his toys. What he isn’t fond of is thunder, he will become anxious and paces but his foster mom will cuddle with him and he just melts in her arms -loving the attention and affection.
Marley knows three of the most important commands, sit, down and come; “stay” and a few others will be worked on as he settles into his new environment.
With the help from GRRMF professionals, volunteers and all the wonderful supporters of this rescue, Marley will be helped with is medical issues and be ready to find his forever home. Take it from his foster mom who says, “Marley is one big lovable guy who has adapted very well. He is a great comfort companion and loving him is sooo easy.”
