All About Me

Marvel has short black fur with a white chest and toes.

Marvel is a big hunk of love! He adores playing with his siblings and is a cool dude all around. He is OK with cats, but because he’s a little too forward and doesn’t understand their cues well, should not live with them. Marvel is very food motivated! Very affectionate with humans, he loves snuggles—and is just a little shy at first. He is excellent with my toddler, totally unflappable. But because he’s a such a tank, Marvel should not live with little kids; older kids would be great. When he gets too hot, he likes to lie on top of AC vent: he is one smart pup! Marvel is crate trained and loves being in there, and loves his naps! Still learning that being inside is OK, Marvel ADORES being outside and would love a fenced yard. He is very playful and friendly, but also independent. He would do fine as only pet or with a dog sibling. I think this guy would be awesome for an adventurous, outdoorsy, loud, boisterous, busy family!
