Update from Marlie's foster (03/31/2020):

"As of the end of March, Marlie has put on weight, but is still resting/sleeping a lot during the day.. especially if she has had a playdate the day before. She is really great with other dogs and especially loves to play with energetic breeds like Australian Shepherds. In general, she seems to be a little more comfortable with women than men. She is changing and gaining more confidence every day, but it is still important to be gentle with her and not overwhelm her with attention.

Marlie is an adorable shepherd rescued from Ensenada, Mexico, in January 2020, in extremly bad conditions. She is now in San Diego and continuing to do great, but still not ready for adoption as she needs to gain weight to be at a healthy weight. Currently she is very skinny and has an excellent appetiite and we know she will be able to gain the weight she needs soon.

This girl is great with dogs and cats, and very gentle and sweet with people. She can be scared when approached at the first meet, but once she knows you, she loves to wag that tail of hers. She is a very loving, grateful, beautiful small breed shepherd mix. We THINK she may be a medium shepherd in the 40s when she is at her healthy weight but we never know if she will be larger (not much since she is not very big in size ei not tall)

If you'd like to foster Marlie or foster to adopt her while she gaines weight ,please submit an applicaiton onine at arwob.org

Don't wait...Submit an adoption application today!
