Sweet Marvela is ready to find her forever home!

Marvela is a loving dog that wants to spend as much time with her people as possible. She loves going on walks, hanging out in the backyard enjoying the sun and making sure those pesky squirrels don't trespass on her turf. She loves belly rubs and curling up on the couch with you in the evening, but loves to get out and enjoy the sunshine whenever she can.

She is very well house trained, knows how to sit on command and comes when called to come back in the house, even when she's enjoying being outside. She loves her daily walks and would like to find a person that could work with her on training.

Marvela loves time with her people, but can be a bit of an attention hog, so she'd prefer to be the solo pup in a home with older children. Since she's such a fan of the outdoors, she'd really love to find a home with a good backyard to sunbathe in, but she can be in an apartment as long as she gets frequent daily exercise.

Marvela is a sweet pup that just wants to love and be loved by her people. The right home is out there for her, and she can't wait to meet her new family soon. Please reach out to learn if you might be the right fit for Marvela today!
