Marlee was rescued from a high-kill shelter. She was quickly a volunteer favorite, known for her hugs and sweet demeanor. Marlee is approximately 3 years old and 50 pounds. She’s a sweet and funny girl who is very alert when she goes for a walk, and an experienced dog handler would be a good match for her. She is happy to relax with you on the couch, and when you leave her alone, she will protest initially but settle down and wait for your return. She goes for zoomies around in her space and will become very excited, but will also easily calm down. 

She’s had two playgroup opportunities at a doggie day care, and wasn’t too happy around the other dogs. With the right meet-and-greet, she may be just fine with another dog! She has a high prey drive when she sees cats during walks, so a cat-free home is best. Marlee loves EVERYONE she meets, and is great with kids and adults!

To meet Marlee, please contact Kennels 2 Couches at (805) 450-1010 or
