WHAT IS YOUR NAME?
Are you a boy or girl?
I'm a sweet baby Boy
How old are you?
I am around one year old as of January 2024!
What breed are you?
I have been told that I am a whippet/pitty mix, but I may have other breeds mixed in there as well. I like to keep people guessing! 🕵️♂️
How much do you weigh?
I am a lean 40 pounds of fabulous! 😍
Who do you live with?
I live with three adults: my foster mom, foster dad, and grandma. There are three resident dogs of various sizes, too. My favorite human is my foster mom because we bonded at the beginning of my stay while she gave me my meds and stayed with me until I felt comfortable. She has taught me so much and I am the happy boy that I am today because of her dedication to my training. 💖
WHERE DO YOU HANG OUT WHEN YOU ARE HOME ALONE?
I like being in my crate, and it keeps me safe and cozy.
WHERE DO you sleep?
Also in my crate, but I would love to sleep on the cozy bed too. Did I mention I'm a great cuddler?
DO YOU LIKE WALKING ON A LEASH?
I love walks! I'm a little bit of a puller, but I am working on that and with patience and consistency, I will learn to be the best companion on walks.
DO YOU HAVE ANY “NOT SO GREAT” HABITS THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?
I like to have my own stuff like toys and food and can be a little possessive if a new person or dog tries to take it away.
ARE YOU HOUSE TRAINED (DO YOU GO POTTY OUTSIDE)?
I sure am! I was potty trained at a very young age! I am such a good boy… I have never had an accident!
DO YOU LIKE WATER?
I love drinking water! I look pretty goofy drinking it, but it is just so yummy and fun! I also don't mind showers, baths 🛁, or rain as long as you are there with me. And I am the best companion on your water sports adventures. 🚣 I love going on the water with boats and paddle boards, but I haven’t done too much swimming. I am always up for new things, so I might love it if given a chance.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR FOSTER FAMILY?
I love that they always play with me and that they are very patient and willing to work with me on my nervousness around people. 🥰
WHAT WAS YOUR LIFE LIKE BEFORE BEING BROUGHT INTO NORCAL BULLY BREED RESCUE?
I was brought to the vet with a broken right foreleg when I was around four months old. I had no chip or collar and, sadly, nobody claimed me. I honestly don't know how I got there, but I was lucky that NorCal Bully Breed Rescue took me in and allowed me to heal in a safe happy environment. And now that I am all healed, I am ready for my forever home! Will you be the one to show me how much fun my life can be with a loving family?
WHAT IS YOUR ADOPTION FEE?
What do you look like?
I am lean and springy, and I have a light marbled brindle coat with gorgeous white accents. (Hence the name Marbles, get it? 😜)
WHat do you like to eat?
I love my kibble, I pretty much love all the treats, and PEANUT BUTTER, yum! 🥜 And I am such a good boy that I will take the treats so gently when you offer them to me (and you WILL offer them to me, right? 😉).
What kind of personality Do you have?
I have two speeds. First, I have “All the Energy” mode! I love jumping around when I am excited. I still have puppy energy, but am learning to slow down when I am told to. Then, there is the “Cuddle” mode. I love to catch my human on the couch or bed and just snuggle up for a good movie, some pets, and a snooze. I am super shy around new people, but once I warm up, I will do everything to make you happy. 💕
Describe your perfect day
My perfect day would be a good breakfast and a nice long walk to get the day started. And on the MOST fun day, we would head out into the world for some adventures. I am a big fan of the outdoors: I love to go camping, on a hike, or to a large fenced yard to run around. You could throw a ball for me or play tug-o-war with one of my many toys! But I’m not always go, go, go… I am also happy to just hang out with you while you do your thing or maybe have a dog friend to play with for a little while. Lastly, we would cuddle for a few hours before crashing and that would be the best day ever! 😁
What is your favorite Toy?
I love ALL the toys! The squeakers! The balls, big and small! Interactive toys! Tug toys! Food filled toys! Towel rolling - I love towels!
Do You Know any Tricks?
I know all the basic obedience commands - sit, down, off, wait, stay, leave it, watch me, touch and shake! I am told I am super smart, but I am still learning and can get distracted quickly. Hey, I’m a puppy still, right? Patience and consistency will have me dazzling you and your friends with my fancy tricks! 🤩
What Scares you?
Nothing much scares me, but strangers make me nervous. It just takes me a little while to warm up.
Have you been around children?
I have been around kids a little, and I am not really a fan. They just do not understand that I get nervous, which makes me even more nervous. I would prefer to be with older children or adults.
Do you like cats?
No, thank you.
How do you feel about other DOGS?
I like other dogs with slow introductions! I would love to play with other dogs, but none of my foster brothers like to play, so having a doggy brother or sister to romp around with would be just the BEST! I am uncomfortable with other dogs while I am on a leash, but I am getting better at that with practice.🐶
If you could be anywhere, where would it be?
Next to my human!
HOw's your health?
