Current Status: Available


Marley needs an experienced family who can nurture Marley with 'good boys', good walks and good food. Marley can get stressed if challenged by another dog but will calm, settle, has no malice just fear, low self confidence and concern: Is benefitting from lots of dog contact, walking parallel with other dogs, to build trust as his instincts are receptive. Can be left short periods; ideal for active home eg jogger. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Marley was found stray: his microchip revealed at least 2 homes each with no commitment, just selling on, eventually abandoned. We, stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Marley's life. Marley is now neutered & fully vaccinated; wormed and flea treated. Marley is in boarding kennels near Gatwick.

About Marley: Marley has a baby face, his eyes are sincere if a little concerned: Marley is a big baby melting hearts: Given love and nestles into you for strokes and cuddles. Bouncy in the home initially and excited receiving visitors. Marley has crate phobia so has been abused. Marley is still a bit chewy and needs to work through this phase with kongs and supportive opportunities, he loves company and direction. Loves people and older children; a little leapy, occasionally mouthy when enthused. Marley's development was held back, will soon catch up in caring family: Loves travelling and secure walking beside you.

Our beautiful boy who lacks self confidence in himself & around dogs. Had at least 3 homes before Rescue. Can be a bit chewy but easily occupied with a natural bone. Marley needs companionship is just a puppy in a 3 year old body Loves sofa lounging! Marley needs someone to walk beside him. Kind hearted. Has grabbed clothes when overexcited but calms with awareness. Experienced owner keep energy low; no malice. Not for children. As with Staffies he loves closeness. Marley gives off a sad air of vulnerability 'little boy lost'. Marley doesn't cope well in kennels as he is quite dependant emotionally. Marley deserves a committed family who can accept his love and employ his fun energy. Stunner

We came forwards for Marley and I collected him Tuesday late afternoon and he happily travelled in the front passenger seat as we sped through the bright lights of the City of London. Marley has a wow factor and hopefully will be homed soon.

Marley came out for a walk at Broxbourne before going to Godstone. He joined Doris and Tia and was very well mannered with both of them. He has a lovely nature and a head that looks too big for his body, with a smile to match :mrgreen:
Marley travelled in the car to Godstone so well. Once on the move he settled down in the back and was no trouble whatsoever, despite the long journey, then a run in the paddock before he met the staff at Godstone and boy did he make a good impression, I don't think I've ever seen a dog greet complete strangers with such enthusiasm and joy. :D

I walked Marley today and he is a friendly boy. He has become a bit nervous in the kennels, he is such a little chap, bless him. He is a bit excitable and can grab the lead sometimes but needs a gentle "walk on". Very cuddly but flinched a bit around his head. Needs gentle TLC whish is guaranteed at Godstone! Very sweet. Sorry it's not a good photo, he wouldn't keep still!

I have walked Marley a couple of times this week and he is adorable. He looks so young and acts with all the enthusiasm of a young dog. This can sometimes mean he grabs at the leads but I am sure this will settle down once he gets used to being taken out for more walks.

He is a pretty little thing, no doubt about it but his coat is also stunning too. That smile and those dark eyes ensured I swooned every time I looked at him. He enjoyed paddock time with games of fetch and also loved just hooning around off lead. A proper, dapper little staffie chap!

Marley was homed for a month with a family. Marley is still a puppy dog and he need lots of support to settle. Marley is still working through his chewy phasedue to lack of opportunity in his development. Good boys, good food; good company oh and good commands. Marley will find a committed family who can offer him support and understanding and his kind heart will always win him through.

Sad to see Marley is back with us but I loved him when I first walked him. He's always loved and wanted with us. Look forward to seeing him at the weekend!
