We love this dog and know that you will too! Marlin is a 7 year-old Cattledog/Husky mix male with one sparkling blue eye who’s just about perfect in our book. This sweet boy had lived with his owner and many other canine companions for over 6 years but recently lost his home when his owner lost her home and had no place to go with her dogs. Fortunately, a good Samaritan contacted us about shelter-bound Marlin so he made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could enjoy life in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. Don’t let Marlin’s age dissuade you—he looks and acts like a much younger dog. He’s got plenty of energy for long walks or hikes but settles down nicely once playtime is over. Marlin gets along well with other dogs. He might be a candidate for a therapy dog as he seems to love all people that he meets and is kind and gentle when meeting them. He loved the squeaky toys during his photo shoot and was a natural in front of the camera. Marlin has excellent crate manners and is likely to be housetrained too. He also walks nicely on a leash. Marlin weighs about 37 pounds and his adoption fee is $150. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. Since arriving at Canine Lifeline, Marlin had a dental cleaning so now flashes a pearly white puppy smile. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Marlin. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
