3 year old • Male • 8 lbs
Marcello is a devastatingly handsome young pup. He is mostly black with some white on his paws, chin, chest, belly, and at the tip of his tail. His ears like to stick out in all directions, and his tail sticks straight up and then curves into the most perfect curl. He is tall and lean with perfect posture.
Marcello is a sweet, friendly, and adventurous little guy. He runs to greet everyone he encounters and likes to give gentle face kisses. He loves to run around with his foster sisters, Sabine and Simone, and does his best to keep up with the resident big dogs. He happily explores every corner of his new home and yard and was already getting the hang of house-training on day one. Marcello loves his toys and a good game of tug with his sisters. He is very agile for his age and loves to show off his speed in a game of "keep away." He loves to be held and will place his paws on your chest and nuzzle his nose into your neck. Marcello has the most precious, perfect strut, like a fancy little show dog.<p>Marcello will steal your heart in no time.
Marcello is microchipped and has begun his puppy deworming and vaccinations.
Marcello came from a rural shelter.
