Positive for heartworms?: 

GRR Number: 18-042

Age: 11

Sponsorship: Marley is co-sponsored by Ann and John Woody and by Bill and Yolanda Lay.


Marley is a permanent foster due to Cushing’s Disease and other health issues including gastrointestinal issues and enlarged lymph nodes and suspected to have lymphoma.


Personality:  Marley is very loving, devoted to his family but can be mischievous at times.  He likes children and expects them to give him lots of attention.  Marley enjoys having a ball but doesn’t see the point in returning the ball to his foster dad as he’ll just throw the ball and you have to go get it again! 


Marley likes the two resident Goldens, enjoys walks and the Dog Park is always fun.  But Marley’s fav thing is hanging his head out the window during car rides as the wind in his face and wonderful smells are so much fun.  After a busy day, Marley enjoys curling up on the couch with his foster mom/dad who will hopefully tickle his chin.


Marley loves his foster family as they treat him like the special dog that he is.  While he has a shortened life expectancy, Marley’s motto is to “love life and live each day to the fullest.”
