Greetings Everyone!!! My name is Marni!!  I was living on a big heavy chain for nine years as a breed dog.  A nice woman saw me in a backyard crying and she brought me food.  She asked my Grandpa if she could have me and he said he didn’t know, he would have to ask.  For a YEAR, this nice woman brought me food and loved on me. Grandpa finally said I could go with the nice woman.  I am afraid of being stuck outside again so I get some anxiety, but I am very sweet and loving once, I am able to trust you. I didn’t get petted or loved for those nine years, so I am a bit needing, but who isn’t now a days?  I love to cuddle and sleep with you.  I did not spend a lot of fun times with the other dogs playing, so I will need to be observed when new doggies come around.  I did spend some time in a foster home with some little pocket dogs, I think they are called POMPOMs. I really don’t care for the little yappers.  I do like cats and I like the older kids, they understand me.  I am a beloved favorite at the rescue with my favorite hoomans, I don’t trust people right away but once I realize you won’t hurt me and I can trust you, I will be forever loyal, love you endlessly and beg for your attention. Kisses Marni!! 
She was born in August 2011, is currently 67 lbs, and is located at the rescue center.
