Name: Marlon

Breed: Mastiff X
Born:  11th November 2018
Sex:  Male
Weight:  Approx 32kg
Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About  Marlon is our Houdini.
Wherever Marlon goes from Yaps he wants to be the centre of attention.
This handsome big boy just loves to get pats and cuddles from anyone that will give him the time – and will make his own adventures to find someone if he is left alone too long.
He will flip on his back and wriggle next to you on the floor almost mimicking you if you lay down next to him… all he wants is love.
Marlon knows some basic commands such as sit, lay down and on your bed and knows to listen to his humans.
Marlon can get excited around other dogs and is learning to control his urges at Yaps, but he will need someone to spend time socialising him with other animals in the right setting.
Watching Houdini work out how to get out of some of our yards is very impressive and he is clearly a very smart dog – he really needs someone that will work with him to put those smarts to good use and give him the loving home he so deserves.
