Meet Marley & Max!

Meet Max and Marley, two 8 yr olds that love each other and share everything. They lost their home when the family moved. It’s clear they were loved and cared for as they’re sweet with people and well mannered in most things. Max and Marley must be adopted together – they’ve been together since puppies and have exhibited sadness when even separated on walks.

They’re perfect in the home, use the doggy door, excited to meet strangers and visitors, even small kids.  Max is not fond of other dogs, but Marley is.  Marley loves to de-stuff his toys. Both love a long walks. Max is BALL CRAZY and will chase it for hours.  They need a new family to give them attention and care deserved. They’re both very healthy. They’d prefer a large yard for fetch, pets, brushing, attention, good food and regular exercise…and a large firm bed to nap on regularly. Lots of family and friends is great – they’re “party dogs,” as both dogs love all people, even the little ones.

Let us tell you a bit about each of them, below.

Max the GSD is very fit and a high-energy dog. He does not act like most 8 year old dogs in rescue. He has far more energy! He loves to play fetch with his underinflated soccer ball. He is leash reactive to other dogs when on a walk, but is in training with his foster Dad (started on 12/8) It’s important that his family continue to follow the protocol his Foster and Trainer have set up for Max to be calmer and more trusting on walks. He’s good with people -adults and children. Max is smart and has caught on quickly about how he’s expected to behave living “inside”. He’s house trained and well-behaved in the house. Never had an accident and never destroyed anything. Lastly, he’s proven to be super smart and very affectionate.

Marley is a typical Golden and kind of a goofball. He sometimes barks a little bit in the house when he hears a noise outside, however, that has subsided since Marley has become more comfortable in his foster home. Marley is lower energy than Max but can run with Max and we were surprised at how fast he could go! Marley (and Max) get walks twice a day and hopefully this will help Marley drop some weight – maybe 10-15 lbs. Marley is also house trained and, aside from tearing apart two stuffed dog toys, has been a good house guest. Marley could benefit from some obedience training too, but all-in-all he’s pretty good. Marley now walks much better on a leash, is also good with people (adults and children). Marley is also better with other dogs in public and sniffed a cat at the vet the other day, with no issues.

If you would consider offering a fur-ever home to Marley and Max, and have completed your “Adoption Application” and had your “In Home Interview,” then please contact their Representative at and let her know how Max and Marley would fit into your home.

Marley’s adoption fee is $350. Max’ adoption fee is also $350. Both dogs are up to date on shots, and healthy.
