Meet Marco

Marco ended up at animal control after being confiscated from his home. Sadly his owner had mental health and substance abuse issues, and Marco experienced a lot of trauma in his young life. He has been in foster care for a few weeks and is ready to leave the past behind him.

Marco was originally purchased from a pet store and was born 10/13/2018. He is timid in new environments but once he he comfortable, he is a happy boy! Marco is very sweet and LOVES to play fetch! He came to us a bit underweight, but is starting to fill in. He lived previously with a female pitbull and is currently fostered with 3 other dogs. Marco does tend to guard his toys from other dogs, so this is something that would need to be managed if he’s adopted to a home with another dog, He would best be matched with a female companion, but would be happy as an only dog as well.

Marco hasn’t been around young children or cat tested. He can be mouthy and jumpy once’s he’s comfortable, so his owner will be required to take him through obedience training. Due to his history, Marco does not like to be crated. He does do fine when he is gated off in his foster mom’s kitchen. Marco would love a fenced yard where he can play fetch and run around with his toys.
