Hi. I'm Marshall. My name means "lover of horses." Not sure that fits since I've never been around horses but I am definitely a lover of small dogs, yorkies to be more specific.
You see, foster mom has a whole gaggle of fiesty, unruly yorkies who think they run the house, (and they do...) I love nurturing them and making sure they are all present and accounted for. It's my job and I do it well. Foster mom calls it "making the rounds." In my previous life, my name was Monster. Foster mom changed my name since that definitely didn't fit me. And Monster definitely doesn't mean nice things like "loves horses 😊"

You see, I am a beautiful golden colored shepherd mix that lived my whole life on a chain with no shelter from the elements. I was not valued by my owner.
DESPITE all that, I managed to like people and small dogs. Not sure about cats. I am, however, uncomfortable around big dogs. Foster mom thinks I may have been attacked by a big dog when I was on the chain. :( Can you imagine??

Enough about the sad stuff. I have really thrived in a home. I am a big old couch potato. I love to hang with my humans and yorkie buddies and watch Netflix and chill.
I love to chew my bones and my squeaky stuffed animals. I love to carry them around and even take them outside. I also love car rides and walks and following foster mom wherever she goes.
I just love being part of a family. I don't like spending much time outside unless my family is out there too. I am treat motivated and verrrry smart! I potty trained myself to go out the yorkie sized doggy door by watching my foster siblings.
Foster mom was quite shocked to see my 66 pound self ( now slimmed down to a sexy 60 pounds) go through a doggy door meant for 15 pounds or less. That just shows you what I'll do to be part of the action.

Despite my years, I am in good health. No other known issues. Foster mom gives me joint supplements to keep me in good shape.

So, if you are looking for a loving, loyal companion who likes to help you do rounds around the house, have your peeps contact my peeps and we'll get this love fest started!

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
