Marlene is a three year old girl who is the perfect blend of setter sweetness and labrador playfulness. We know her mom is a purebred setter, and based on her looks, we are guessing dad is a labrador retriever. This 35 lb. bundle of joy arrived in ACES foster care a short while ago, and we are loving every minute with her. She gives great setter hugs and her brown retriever eyes express great feeling. From her setter side, she wants to cuddle and from the lab side she gives you her focus and loyalty. She gives very gentle kisses to greet you when you get home.
In her foster home, Marlene lives with a setter and a lab mix and she gets along really well with both. She knows how to gently invite other dogs to play, and if they are not in the mood, she knows to give them some space. She is eager to please, listens well and plays well with everybody, including a pesky 6-month old puppy that stayed with us for a few days.
Marlene is good on the leash and enjoys her time outside in the fenced yard, but she is very content just to pal around with her people and share in the fun. In the past, Marlene has broken through invisible fencing so she will need a physical fence to romp in. Marlene loves playing fetch and is very good about bringing back the ball and dropping it at your feet. We're working on "stay" and "off," but otherwise, we've had no accidents or other problems in the house, and she has the run of the house with our dogs during the day while we are at work.
A good home for Marlene would have a physically fenced yard and a family who loves her and can spend time with her. If you are looking for an easygoing companion who's up for anything, sweet Marlene is your girl.
Deby Meeks and her special girl Dolly Bella, send special adoption wishes to Marlene. Here's hoping you can be home for the holidays!
