|MARCIE* - ID#A203347
Staff named me Marcie* and I am a spayed female, tricolor Chihuahua - Smooth Coated.
The shelter staff think I am about 4 years old.
I have been at the shelter since May 18, 2014.
This information is less than 1 hour old.
Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
(Web viewers: See Marcie’s video below!)
Don’t let Marcie’s seemingly shy demeanor fool you; this gal is really a super affectionate and playful pup! While she loves to romp and play ball, her favorite place is in your arms… where she feels safe. This isn’t surprising given that Marcie was brought to the Shelter by a Good Samaritan who saved her after two large dogs chased her into the ocean, where she was almost swept away!
While she can be understandably wary of certain dogs, Marcie is learning to trust other dogs again. She regularly participates in the Shelter’s small dog playgroups and has become BFFs with her kennel mate, Suzie (also available for adoption). Her confidence is blossoming and Marcie is looking for a home that will continue to nurture her growth.
In addition to human affection, Marcie loves treats and will try to do whatever you ask of her in exchange for some; she’ll even “sit”! Positive reinforcement will go a long way with Marcie, as she is sensitive and eager to earn human approval. So if you’re looking for an affectionate canine companion who’s ready to win your heart, meet Marcie! -RL
