Meet our cutie-pie, Marilyn, an adorable young girl who has tons of pawtential to be your furry best friend! Marilyn has the cutest frazzled coat; together with her slightly mis-matched eyes (one brown, one partially blue), this young girl is as pretty as she can be. Being a youngster, Marilyn is a ball of happy energy with a healthy dose of curiosity. She is interested in learning all things about life, and she is not hesitant to embrace all that it has to offer. Marilyn is at the pyrfect age where she will benefit greatly with consistent positive reinforcement training so that she can learn all the necessities of being the pyrfect pooch. With appropriate directions, Marilyn will learn how to channel her energy and curiosity in a pawsitive manner, while having sufficient physical and mental enrichment on the daily basis. These days, Marilyn is busy loving life, and she is never shy about showing off her jumping skills (think 4 feet in the air like a kangaroo :) In time, we are sure that Marilyn will mature into the most lovely girl who will also be the joy of your life!

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
