Pit Bull / Lab
Age: Young Adult

Hi, I'm Marco! I am three-years-old, 50 lbs., and as handsome as can be with my incredibly soft coat, adorable smile, and curly-q tail. I was DNA tested and would you believe I have a total of 17 breeds! I was found as a stray in rural North Carolina in November 2021 where I spent 17 months in the shelter, 23 hours a day in a kennel - that's basically where I grew up and all I've never known. I have been in my amazing foster home in Connecticut since March 2023 and while it has been so much fun and I am incredibly loved, I yearn for a family of my very own! I'm a big fan of pets and will curl up right next to you as I always love being with my people. I really like sleeping in bed with my fosters and will sleep all the way through the night until you wake up in the morning. Make sure you have a cozy blanket because I will paw at it to wrap myself up in it - I'm just a little baby boy! I absolutely LOVE to play and adore my toys. Tug of war? Yep. Fetch? I'm a professional. I am very smart and anything that helps my mind think is enjoyable to me, like snuffle mats, food puzzles, lick mats, etc. I'm always up for an adventure - I love seeing new sights and while we're out and about, you'll see just how well I walk on leash too! I'm a big fan of other dogs and I'm also fine with cats. Having another playful pup to live with would make me super happy! Now here's the thing, you're probably wondering how a handsome boy like myself has been in the shelter system for so long...well, long story short, new people make me nervous so you will need to build trust with me. However, once I know you, I'll love you forever. Kids freak me out so adults only, please. I'll need a family willing to be patient as we work on my reactivity to strangers and mouthiness because I just get so darn overstimulated and excited. My foster mom has already taught me to sit and I'm house and crate trained too. I'm a very good boy with so much potential - I just need a very special person! I am just so happy to be out of the shelter and start my next chapter. Once we become friends, you'll see why my foster mom thinks I'm the best boy ever! My adoption fee is $350 and I am vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered.
