Ruff! Hi, my name is Marbles and I am a coonhound/beagle mix that was rescued from TN earlier this year. Through a miracle, I was rescued right as they were getting ready to euthanize me. I even had the catheter placed already. I’m so grateful that BBRH rescued me and saved my life. My life before rescue was tough but I am learning now that people can be loving and caring.
I’m a medium sized dog at about 46 lbs and I’ve been neutered and fully vetted. I am about a year and a half old. I am potty trained and kennel trained, in fact, I prefer to be kenneled when my humans leave the house and when I eat. I’m not a fan of sweet potato treats and I can be kind of picky about dog treats. I like to eat Purina Pro Plan Chicken and Rice and I really love bacon and cheddar treats. Yum, those are the best. Sometimes I still need to learn my manners when it comes to human food but I do know how to sit when commanded and go to my kennel when commanded. I do beg for pizza crust and anything with cheese but I won’t be mad if you decide not to share with me. I also love the occasional bone to chew on. Speaking of chewing, I really love to chew the eyes off of stuffed animals but I prefer kid stuffed animals to dog toy stuffed animals.
I am a very sweet boy. My foster mommy tells me that I’m just a big ball of love which is true. I love naps especially with my humans. I love to be petted and I will nudge your hand when I want your attention. I definitely love me a good belly rub and I would like to go to a home where daily belly rubs are part of the routine! Also, I really love to go walking at least once a day because another one of my hobbies is to sniff stuff.
I am very gentle with kids. My human kids now like to dress me up and pet me. Sometimes this 1 year old comes over and chases me around. I don’t mind at all, in fact, I love the extra love. I am a quiet calm dog. I rarely ever bark (except sometimes I bark and growl in my sleep) and I’ve never growled at anyone the entire time I’ve been in foster care. I do well with other pets but prefer calm pets. Cats don’t bother me at all, even when they hiss at me.
I need to live with a family who has a tall fence as I sometimes see or smell things that entice me to jump the fence. I don’t jump the fence anymore at my foster mom’s house but I do still like to jump fences in yards I’m not familiar with. I’m also not a fan of the 4th of July.
Most of all, I need to go to a home with humans who will continue to show me the love I deserve. I need humans who will reassure me that I am safe. I hope you will be my forever human and help me live out the best days of my life.
Marbles is current on vaccinations, HW negative, neutered, and micro chipped.
