Hi, I'm Marvin!
Marvin is a big boy with even bigger heart. He is a volunteer favorite and we can't wait for him to find a forever home. Marvin enjoys going on walks, running around in the yard.
He is very affectionate boy and loves attention and treats. Marvin does the traditional German Shepard " Lean In", and likes to cuddle.
Marvin likes other dogs and will walk nicely with a friendly canine that he knows. He would do great as an only dog since his size can be overwhelming to most other dogs.
He walks well on a leash but will pull when he sees another dog. It is important that person walking him is comfortable handling a big boy like Marvin.
These are observations from his foster family: "Marvin has been great meeting new people when we introduce him to them carefully or have them feed him kibble for tricks. He's met young children who were held by their parent and was gentle to go up to and sniff them. He did not live with any other animals. We always enjoyed our quick training sessions through playing ball and having him run around the yard. He's a very intelligent dog and is fast! Sometimes gets too excited and can't wait for treats to come out of your hand or pouch, or skips steps for commands, assuming he knows what trick you'll have him do next".
Marvin loves belly rubs so much that he would love to receive them 24/7 if he could! He enjoys spending his time lounging in the grass outside and sprawling on couches indoors, making him the perfect companion for someone who loves both outdoor and indoor activities.
This sweet boy is sure to steal your heart with his affectionate nature and love for attention.
