My name is Marley and I’m a Staffy x EBT (English Bull Terrier). I’m 7 years old and I am looking for my forever home. I’m a good boy; I love everyone and everything, so you’re best coming to meet me.
I’m not a big fan of them but I am happy to walk past and ignore them. I love going for my walks every day. I’m good on the lead and I’m currently using a harness, but I don’t pull and you can use a figure of 8 lead too. The humans let me off the lead sometimes to give me a good run about. I have good recall and come back when I’m called; I walk to heel as well! I’m a clever boy, but they say in a built-up area I should be on the lead, as if I see a human I get excited!
I love so many things, but I don’t love small furries like cats! I do get over-excited so they say a pet-free home is what I need to be happy and content. I absolutely love kids, but not the small ones as again, I get over-excited and I’m scared in case I accidentally knock one over: So older children for my new home please!
I LOVE my food and treats – I really, really love playing with toys, Kong toys, tennis balls, as we can play “fetch” which I enjoy so much! It also keeps me fit and healthy, while I’m having fun with my special humans.
I can travel in a car with a seat belt harness as long as I can have my safe space to relax and enjoy the ride. At bedtime, I have my own bed with my cosy warm blankets: I love to cosy in and have a lovely night’s sleep dreaming of the fun we can have as a family. We have heated floors here in Orkney so I often put my blanket on the floor to warm it up before getting into bed! The humans say that my new forever home may not have heated floors, but it won’t matter as I’m sure there’d a radiator nearby you could heat a blanket for me to make it nice and cosy!
I’m short-haired so grooming is very little, maybe a bath or shower every now and then to keep me smelling fresh. I’m very happy to be left in my home for a period of time if you need to go to work or meet your friends as long as you remember to come home every now and then like after 4 hours, just to check on me and see if I need a garden visit – I’m very well house-trained and I don’t destroy things – I’m a clever boy!
So that’s enough about me. I can tell you lots more when you visit me: I may be very excited when you visit so don’t be shocked if I want to play, as I will want to show you how clever I am!
So is it you that has my forever home? I hope so …
Lots of love
I will be neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, flea and worm treated. Application is by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
