Hi my name is Marco. I have had quite a rough upbringing however through my carers I have learned that not everybody is danger. When you first meet me, I will be very shy and won’t come for food, pats or toys. I do however really like other dogs and eventually you and I will be able to be my best friends. I wish that my new family has other dogs to play with and parents who are super patient with me.
I’m the goodest boy because I’m house trained. Once we become best friends, which might take a little while, I will jump around and be the most playful puppy you have ever seen. I am pretty big, so sometimes my playful ways can seem a bit daunting so my carers say no little kids please. I’m looking for a home that has a lot of time for me because I will take a long time to warm up and there are still things I am not overly keen on, like car trips.
I do love a snuggle on the couch though and will paw you if you stop patting me. My favourite snack is cheese but anything my foster leaves on the arm of the chair is delicious too!
Please note Marco has come from an abusive home and he needs an extremely large amount of care and patience. His 1st and 2nd carer I took quite a few days each for him to trust them and another few days to liven up and another few days again to receive pats and treats.
Marco has not been tested around cats. He has been tested around all types of dogs and got along well with them all.
Marco loves a big back yard where he car run freely especially for a ball. Marco has been tested home alone (with other dogs present) and has been fine however has a tendency to chew if not left with enough activities.
