THIS IS MARLI….and simply put, she is a doll.  This petite, 7 lb, 3-4 yr old, tri-colored Yorkshire Terrier/Shih Tzu mix was bailed from the Palmdale Shelter by the public…but she was not a good fit in their home, so they asked for us to place her. Our pleasure!  Marli has a big personality for a little girl.  She does not like being left alone and will bark…so it is important that her new home have another small dog to keep her company…even better would be best if her family was home a lot.  She is very portable, but she does need to know it’s an okay world out there!  She does settle down, but she does have separation anxiety.  A house would be more suited for her than an apartment.  She is a great walker, but occasionally will bark at other dogs or people on the walk.  This is easily controllable and we have been working with her on this.  She does like to jump up on people to say hello (and boy can she jump!) but she doesn’t have an ounce of aggression in her.  She does use pp pads…but she also goes outside to do her business.  Marli loves to kiss, so if you don’t like a licky girl, she’s not for you!  Do you have room on your lap and a place in your heart for Marli?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
