Hi, My name is Marley! I'm a loyal Sheprador (Lab/Shepherd mix) who loves chasing bugs outside and long walks around the neighborhood. I'm a little nervous around new people, so I may take some time to warm up to you and your new home, but once I know you're my friend, I love to play. Hide and seek is one of my favorite games in the house. I'm very smart and know quite a few tricks, but might need a little more work on how to properly meet strangers who come to the house so that I don't seem so intimidating to new people. I'm fully potty trained and passed an obedience class when I was a little younger (I'm a little over 2 now)! If I get really excited, I like to run zoomies, so it's a good idea for me to have a large yard where I can run and lay in the grass when there is good weather. I've been raised with a small person, but since I get anxiety about new things and take some warming up, it might be best if there are only adults in my new home. I like most other animals I've met (though I will chase birds and squirrels), but please give me a chance to meet your pet first, since some dogs scare me. I don't usually hang out at dog parks since I'd rather be with my people where I'm more comfortable, but if I'm on a leash or in the yard, I love a good chase! I would love to find my forever home with someone who can work with me on my fear and give me lots of walks and snuggles. I get scared sometimes, but I am such a good girl and I love to learn and earn treats! I'm hoping I can find a loving family or person who can give me the love and attention I need.
