Well hello world! Who is ready for a big lovable goofball to join their family? If so, keep reading, because I might be your guy!

My name is Marley, and I am an 11 month old boy, most likely I am a German Shepherd and great Dane mix. I can’t speak but my foster mom says that’s her best guess! I look like a really long legged German Shepherd, with a very smooth coat. I also have these crazy helicopter ears that do all sorts of fun stuff when I’m running around.

I am a sweet and affectionate boy. I just want to be loved. I have a lot of puppy energy and clumsiness. I am totally unaware of my size. I am basically an 80 pound puppy. I am housebroken and crate trained. I love attention, and will run right up to you and sit beside you. I also love to cuddle on the couch given the opportunity. I’m a big gentle giant. Well, I’m working on the gentle part, I’m kind of a little over enthusiastic at times, but there’s not a mean bone in my body.

I totally love playing with other dogs! There are several here at my foster home, and I have a blast running around the yard with them. Several of them are much smaller than me, but I play appropriately! I am a very fast boy to, I love to run. I will probably be a great running partner for someone who likes to jog.

I can sometimes be a little shy when meeting new people, but after a few minutes and a few treats I will be your best friend. I would love a home with another dog of at least 40 pounds to play with. I do well with children to, but due to my size and goofiness, children over 10 would probably be best.

I’m a smart boy and I want to please! I just need someone who wants to spend a lot of time with me and allow me to develop into the best dog possible. I’m going to be a big dog when I fill out, so I will need someone dedicated to work with me on obedience and manners! You will not be disappointed. I’m a super fan boy. Please come meet me soon
