Meet Marla. Marla is probably the sweetest pup you will ever meet. She loves people and just wants to be by your side. She is happy to go for a walk or lay quietly at your feet just as long as she can be near her person. Her desire to please is so strong it makes teaching her a snap. She has learned all of her basic commands and has very nice leash manners. She is potty trained and has never chewed on anything inappropriate though she does like to chew her Nyla Bones. Marla’s tolerant and loving personality makes her a good fit for kids of any age. She would be a great take to work office dog and with a bit more training a great therapy dog. She is a bit unsure of new dogs but after proper introductions she is fine with them. Marla came to us with her 9 pups from a less than perfect first home and is now looking for her forever one filled with lots of hugs and praise. Because of her past home life Marla can sometimes be a bit unsure so she will need a good leader to show her how good the world can be. Marla’s heart is twice as big as her ears and if you welcome her into your home she promises to be the most loyal friend you have ever had.
