MARGE

Our lovely, large Marge is a grand old gal, who needs a quiet, calm retirement home to spend her golden years. Marge recently joined us from NYC ACC, where she spent some time after Animal Control officers found her roaming a Brooklyn, New York, neighborhood, unaccompanied. Nobody came to claim Marge. By the end of her stray hold, she had earned stellar behavior evaluations, and was placed in the Shelter adoption program, only to be passed over because of her age.


Marge was a favorite among Shelter Staff and Volunteers, but sadly, at 8 years young, her shelter adoption options were limited. Seems that everybody wants to experience puppy hell, and too few people appreciate the considerable benefits of having an older dog, who is well past the puppy mayhem stage. She came to our Rescue so that we could cast a wide net, and find her just the right adopter.

Marge appears to be a pretty mix of Belgian Malinois Shepherd and Rottweiler. She is a lean, statuesque beauty at an athletic weight of 70 pounds. Her short, flat coat requires regular brushing, but is easy to groom, and Marge enjoys the grooming process. Her coat is mostly russet brown, with cream and black markings on her face and feet. Marge seems more like the elegant Malinois in personality, and she seems laid back, demure, and enjoys the companionship of her people. She seems to have a slight sadness about her, and is likely feeling confused and disoriented with the rescue process.


Marge has a very genial nature. She is a sociable dog, and while she has not had much background in obedience, she has grasped the basics and seems to enjoy the training exercises. She certainly is food motivated, and responds well to to positive reinforcement training techniques. Marge is easy to walk on lead, and has a moderate exercise level. She would be happy with a few leisurely to brisk leash walks daily, and a game of frisbee.

Marge would be a great choice for a moderately active single or couple, a recent retiree or senior. She could easily do well in an apartment lifestyle, and can be trusted home alone for short periods of time. Marge could easily join a multi-dog home, with proper introduction and supervision. Marge is a pretty good all-around companion dog, and needs to be in an environment where her golden years will be spent as the light of someone's life, rather than considered an afterthought.


Marge has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home. Marge is in great health and has been spayed. Marge has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitus, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza, coronavirus), and she has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed, microchipped and is on preventatives for Heartworm and Flea/Tick.
