Marcia

ABOUT ME

*another older seasoned dog in the home and a physical fully enclosed fence required.

Marcia is the sweetest, smartest pup her foster parents have ever met. She loves cuddles and giving lots of kisses, she’ll even give you kisses on the cheek if you let her! Marcia’s favorite games are wrestling for toys with her brother, chasing bubbles in the backyard, and exploring on walks. She has been practicing going out on the leash and she loves meeting new friends.

She doesn’t let anything slow her down, including her special needs. Marcia’s balance can be a little wobbly and we think her depth perception is a little off due to a mild neurological disorder. She likes to be shown steps aren’t too high for her but she’s a very brave young lady and has already conquered all of the staircases at her foster home. Marcia’s condition is for life but will not worsen and as she learns to adapt the symptoms may become less noticeable. She is still working on her potty training but she only goes on puppy pads if she does have accidents. Marcia has been practicing very diligently on learning new commands with her brother Bobby so she is learning both hand signals and verbal commands for come, sit, touch, with me, and even shake! She is still learning so she really likes practicing with treats and would love to keep learning with her forever family.

Marcia is great with kids, and loves playing with her brother Bobby. She enjoys splashing around in the kiddie pool and drinking from the hose. Marcia has met a few new dog friends and even a cat who she thought was less fun to play with but a-okay by her. She is always a bit cautious meeting new dogs but she’s loved playing with every dog she has met once she gets to say hi!
