Marlie – Adopted!

December 13, 2012  

Rescue Dog of the Week


We hope you are sitting down, because you are about to see something fabulous! Marlie! Yep, it doesn’t get much better than her!

Marlie was brought into a shelter after being found in an abandoned meth lab. If she was supposed to be there as a guard dog, she failed miserably, because she was all kisses and tail wags when the police went in! Marlie was taken to the shelter to put on weight and wait for her fate. Marlie quickly became a staff favorite and office dog. She hung out in the office and could often be seen on someone’s lap, lounging and getting a belly rub. Unfortunately for Marlie, the adopters never came, and she was in that shelter for 6 months.

That’s when the Humane Society of Calvert County stepped in. They saw in Marlie the same wonderful qualities that everyone else did, and took her back to their shelter. Now, going to another shelter is not the best situation, but a private rescue shelter may be able to offer her more than a large city shelter, so off to the rescue shelter she went.

Marlie quickly became a volunteer favorite at the Humane Society of Calvert County, and for exactly the same reasons. We love it that she will just sit on our laps, we love it that she is so calm and laid back, we love it that we can do pretty much anything to her and she is fine with it. What we don’t love is that she is still with us. Seriously, Marlie is an amazing dog! So why is she not in a home? We have no idea. Look at that sweet face! Do you see it, too? That fantastic personality? Could Marlie finally find her forever home with one of you?

Marlie is available for adoption through the Humane Society of Calvert County in Sunderland, Maryland; you can also visit them on Facebook.
