Adopt Me: A Marvel to Behold

The one and only Marvel

Are you looking for a doggie super hero? 

Then Marvel could be just your guy!  Marvel is 1-year-old male, yellow lab mix that is as sweet and gentle as can be.  He is a little underweight at around 50-55 lbs.  Animal control down in southern Indiana saved him from his life on a chain as an outside dog, and now he is learning what it's like to enjoy the comforts of home! 

Everything is new to him from riding in a car, to crossing the threshold from outside to inside, to going for a walk on a leash, and going up and down stairs.  He is learning very quickly, and he couldn't be more proud of himself each time he conquers one of his fears. 

He very much wants to please his human.  He is praise motivated and quick to stop what he is doing if he gets a gentle "no".  He is a little shy at first, but he quickly warms up and LOVES attention (including being brushed) and belly rubs. 

Even though he has lived as an outside dog and was only recently neutered, he has not marked in the house at all or had any accidents so far.  He loves playing outside in the fenced back yard and he lights up when he sees another dog to play with. 

It's great to see this guy that previously had limited interactions and nofreedom become a confident, playful pup!  Could you be the family Marvel deserves and has been waiting for?  He is neutered, up to date on shots and heartworm negative. 

His $200 adoption fee also includes a voucher for a free microchip.  To meet this dog, please call Kim at 815-342-0967.
