Marley Yellow Labrador Retriever Female 9 Years Old

Yellow Labrador Marley chilling out in the house

Marley has been with us for several weeks now. She has really blossomed in her foster home.

She really loves her walks and walks very well on a harness. She loves her smells on her walks. She is turning into quite the little cuddle bug. She has wonderful manners and sits nicely.

Recently, surprisingly, we noticed she was in heat. She handled that quite well for a girl who is nine years old …that isn’t easy.

Marley’s forever home should be one where she can be walked at least twice a day.

A fenced yard would be a plus. She does not seem to have any separation anxiety issues. A home with no or older children would be preferred.

Although she is nine years old, she loves to play with her toys and has some spunk. She also gets a case of the zoomies every now and then.

Marley has a lot of life left in her and is in great health and physical condition. She is simply gorgeous!

Some deserving family will be very lucky to call her theirs.  We love her!

yellow female Labrador Marley hanging out in the snowyellow female Labrador MarleyMarley has really settled into her foster home. She now does stairs and is doing much better with a harness on her walks. We found out she is not spayed, so when she’s made available, she will have to be spayed. Suddenly our resident (neutered) dog Max is quite fond of Marley 😆

She really is very loving and easy going. She settles nicely, has good manners, and enjoys her treats and toys. She doesn’t seem to mind seeing other dogs on our walks.

She wasn’t sure how to unwrap her Christmas gifts but she loved her treats and toys.

Look for Marley to be available after the holidays! She will make a great addition to families without small children.

Yellow Labrador Retriever Marley at the Paulsen home

For the most part, sweet Marley has acclimated to indoor living. She is still hesitant of doorways but goes through them. She goes up stairs, just not down yet, but she will get there. She did half of them today.

It’s obvious she has never been walked on a leash, but she is adapting to that too (with a harness) and simply loves all her smells on her walks. Who wouldn’t after spending their life in a kennel run!Marley, yellow Lab hanging out in front of the Christmas tree

She hasn’t shown much interest in other dogs that we have passed by.  But we walked with our neighbor’s dog for a bit and she seemed to care less.

She sleeps through the night and eats her meals in a very ladylike manner. She loves her squeaky toys and balls.

She has the most unique and gorgeous color–almost a golden copper–and her ears feel like velvet.

She really seems like a healthy girl and she is well mannered (no trash picking or counter surfing) and spry for her age. but settles nicely after her walks.

If she continues to adapt at this pace, she should be available to go to her forever home after the rescue returns from its break in January.

9 year old yellow lab Marley

An update from Miss Marley, who has lived outside for years. This sweet girl is listed as 9 but you wouldn’t think so watching her move around. She got the “zoomies” twice since being with us.  She is a LOVER! Since arriving Saturday she got a bath and a much needed mani/pedi on her nails. She’s definitely not familiar with stairs and that got interesting at the groomer. She can be a little unsure of doorways but in her own time she goes through them.

She has cuddled with and leaned up against anyone who will pet her. My brother was petting her, talking to her and she immediately laid down to show her belly. She LOVES our senior resident dog and has been my 3 year old’s (human daughter) tail. Always sniff sniff sniffing but not licking which is nice.

No accidents inside, she isn’t interested in a crate so we gave her free reign of our kitchen and dining room. Not a peep- sleeping 10pm until 5:30 each night.

Meet Marley who was just surrendered to Brookline. Marley’s owner’s situation changed and they could no longer care for her.  But that’s OK because even though she was a family pet, she has been living outside her entire life.  That’s all in the past now.  Stay tuned for updates on this pretty, spry gal.
