Marley is a 14 pound male Shih tzu. We estimate that he is about 5 years old. He was picked up as a stray by a local shelter and when they called FOHA to step up and help we were happy to take him!! He was on the street so we don’t know how he got the bruise on the left side of his face. His eye on that side is nonfunctional and he had some broken teeth on that side which our vet pulled and gave him a dental. Everything has healed and left him with blindness in that eye but this has not affected his loveable personality. His right eye is good and he needs ointment due to dry eye but Marley is a very good patient.
Marley has been nicely groomed and he is a very handsome little gentleman!! He is a very affectionate and low key dog. He loves to lay in the sun and soak up the warm rays. Marley walks well on a leash and doesn’t bark very much. He rides well in his crate in the car. Marley is a good eater and enjoys a cookie too. He is very good with my other dogs and he is not aggressive or dominant in the least. Marley is very trusting and loves to be petted and held. Marley sleeps in his bed all night. He is mostly house trained and does well if he is walked outside and receives praise so he is learning that he needs to go outside. Marley does not mark in the house.

Marley had his teeth fixed (9 extracted) and nicely cleaned, he will be neutered and is already up to date on shots as well as being heart worm negative. He would do well in a home without a lot of activity as he is low key. He can be with other dogs and probably will be fine with children who are gentle with him. This boy will follow you around the house and give you lots of love for years to come. He will greet you with a smile when you come home and be a fine companion when you are out in the yard or go walking or just relaxing at home.

Marley is ready to start his new life with his new forever home. You can contact me at 401-441-8395 or email .
