Hi my name is Marlowe. I am 5 years old and a malti dog! I love to roam around the house and the fenced yard. I really just like to stay close to people. I need a lot of TLC as I am very shy and need some warming up to do. I really would love a place of peace and quiet.
What did you implement for house training? Do you think it's working? He had trouble walking on leash and so at first I let him walk on his own out to an enclosed yard and after I took him for walks and let him roam around. It works just gotta give him a lot of affection, time, and a quiet space to adjust.
Have you introduced them to a crate? If so, what kind of crate and what was their reaction? No I have not, but could be a good option as a safe space.
How many hours did you leave them home alone? What was their behavior like when left alone? 2-3 hours to let him rest. He is a very laid back dog and not very active. He does enjoy being by a human's side but did whimper a little when left alone.
What is their behavior like with other animals? He is timid with other animals but does ok with calm, polite dogs.
What is their behavior like with new people and/or children? : He is a very shy dog in new places and with new people. But the more you hangout with him he becomes comfortable.
Is there anything else that you would like the new adopter to know about this dog, such as any special tricks or adorable traits? He knows how to sit and when comfortable will stand on his hind legs and wave his paws.
