Meet An Adoptable Dog

Special Needs: Marcy had mammary tumors removed in March 2018. The tumors were benign and likely hormone related. Marcy was recently spayed, and this should reduce the hormones that were causing her mammary tumors.
What kind of home would be best for me? Marcy has a very confident personality. She will do well in most homes. She would like a home where she is top dog. She wants her very own human & be the only apple in their eye. She would do well if the other dog in the home is laid back or needs Marcy to be their eyes & ears. She likes "to do" stuff - so it's very important Marcy is given regular direction or be included in your projects. Owner Experience 5: More than 10 years as a dog owner. Has experience as a dog owner but has had no behavior or medical challenges to work with.
What is my personality like: Marcy is the kind of gal who knows what she wants & is ready to tell you all about it! Marcy barks for two things in the house - mealtime (better be on time!) & to go potty. Other than that, she'll chatter with grumbles about being in charge of all the dogs, she'll answer any question you ask or just scratch her butt as she wiggles her nubbin tail. Marcy would thrive as a leader of a shy/submissive sibling or being your one & only. She is highly food motivated & a quick learner. Don't be fooled by her age, she's sharp as a tack & spunk. Marcy frequently mouths the open air wherever she's pleased by your love. She usually opens her mouth in threes - her foster mom says it's her way of saying I love you. Marcy does need a fenced yard and walks. She's ready to explore the world. Also, she has been working really hard to lose extra pounds from overeating. She will always eat - so proper food amounts are crucial for her health. Marcy likes to talk a lot! Some talks include barks, growls, & grunts - be ready to listen to her or she will smack you with a paw to get your attention! Please note that Marcy does have a bite history. She has bitten 2 different individuals, both times when they tried to pick her up from behind and her back was painful from weight.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly and curious
Tips and Tidbits:
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
