MARILU – Rotti Mix / 1 year / 33kg / F-Spayed
Marilu was a favourite on the street, spending her days roaming from place to place as people fed her. And while she was well fed and got affection, she wasn’t vetted and her skin started showing signs of inflammation and flaking. Once she was taken into rescue, she was given a series of medicated bath and her coat began to glow—and she’s now a chestnut beauty!
Marilu loves playing with both dogs and people, though her penchant for wrestling could be a bit much for small dogs. When Marilu plays, she plays hard! She’s moderately active and enjoys running around chasing soccer balls and playing tug with rope toys. This girl knows how to work her big brown eyes to get all the cuddles and affection she can handle, but the real way to her heart is through food. Marilu loves to eat! She has excellent leash skills, has almost mastered the ‘sit’ command, and is working on ‘stay’ and ‘leave it.’ While she can be bouncy when she’s excited, she’s making good progress with the ‘off’ command and would do fine in a home with older kids.
Marilu’s wish list includes a home with a secure yard where she can play and a family who will spend a lot of time with her to provide love, cuddles, and regular exercise. She’s looking for a full-time dog pal to have fun with—and it’s cat-free for this girl!
