It is important you research the dog's lifestyle needs to make sure that they fit yours - just as you would ensure compatibility with a human, you are committing to share your life for 10+ years. Please take the time to read ALL information provided. MARCUS was saved from a shelter in the south. MARCUS is neutered, rabies, age-appropriate vaccines, heartworm & tick disease tested negative, dewormed and on monthly preventatives. He weighs around 55 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of 27 August 2017 . We have no way of knowing for sure what breed he is and so it is up to potential adopters to look at his pictures, video's many more can be found on the rescue website, and decide for themselves. Marcus is a fun, loving, affectionate and active boy. He had a great family in Alabama, however, he had some of the other family dogs were not getting along and so they had to be separated. For this reason we are looking for a family who doesn't have any other dogs, to ensure that Marcus can enjoy all the love and attention all for himself. He is a very sweet boy, if he was a human he would be a gymnast as he jumps and bounces like he has springs on his feet. Marcus is a great age of around 5 years old, so we are looking for an active family to ensure he has the lifestyle that he needs and ensuring he gets the physical and mental stimulation that he and all dogs need. Marcus is well mannered and responsive, eager to please, takes treats gently, rides great in the car, walks nicely on the leash - although of course when excited he does pull a little. He has NEVER seen snow and so an exciting winter is ahead for him. MARCUS is located at Give a Dog a Home Rescue in Sebec and is available for adoption for a reduced adoption fee of $250.
