Characteristics:  Marlowe is a 2 year old, 78 pound, neutered, male, Rottweiler/Shepherd mix that was brought in as a stray. He was found along with another dog that was hit by a car. Marlowe was lying next to his buddy on the side of the road until somebody came and helped them. His buddy was rushed off to the hospital while Marlowe was sent to us. When he first arrived, he was very friendly toward females but was unsure about our male staff members. He was nervous here at the shelter and had been unsure about all the loud sounds. Now that Marlowe has had some time, he is a very sweet and happy boy! He has since warmed up to our male staff, and he loves to play and enjoys the game of fetch. Marlowe enjoys meeting new people, but will jump on you for hugs. He is a very big boy so his new owners will need to be able to handle that. He does not realize how big he is and believes he is a lap dog. He enjoys attention and will check in often for more petting and cuddles. Marlowe does not seem bothered by the other dogs here at the shelter. Marlowe is a big boy that needs to be in a home and not the shelter. He is struggling in his kennel and needs out as soon as possible to ensure his safety!!! Marlowe is up to date on his rabies vaccine and heartworm negative. Marlowe has been bouncing off the walls nonstop and has been struggling for days! We fear he may injure himself in his kennel if he does not find placement soon.
