Marmaduke

Marmaduke

Marmaduke is a 7 year old, slightly pudgy fellow with a rather quirky personality. That being said, I adored him upon first sight and may have to keep him for myself unless I am able to find him the most amazing of homes.

Marm came to us when his owner was no longer able to care for him due to illness. He is considered “special needs”, because he suffers from severe anxiety. What does that mean exactly? Well, he is on some heavy duty anxiety meds, which we will have our veterinarian evaluate. He also has some awkward, jerky movements (reminds me of Joe Cocker) and is a slight bit hesitant and uneasy in social situations with other animals and people. It is odd, because he is an affectionate little guy once he becomes comfortable with you and it’s on his own terms. Overall, he is a reserved little gentleman, who enjoys the occasional pet or bit of attention, appreciates his meals on time and to be let out promptly afterwards, and prefers the comfort of a soft bed in a quiet corner the remainder of the time. In my opinion, he is an easy dog and would be a great constant companion for the right person. He would be around, but not under your feet.

If you are in the market for a low energy dog, Marm may just be your man. He would probably do best as an only dog/pet and in a quiet home without small children. He is housebroken, neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
