MEET MARLOWE….who came to us from the Lancaster Shelter just about as shutdown as they come.  Marlowe is a 10-11 lb.,  2-3 yr old, cream with silver tips Maltese/Shih Tzu, and is one of the calmest young dogs we have ever had!  She picks and chooses where she wants to “reside” — in this case the couch — and it becomes hers!  She will let you sit there if you ask her nicely!!  She is a cuddle buddy but is still a bit fearful and slowly coming out of her shell.  Marlowe will plant herself wherever she feels safe and let you wait on her!  She is the epitome of “princess.”  She loves other dogs and loves all people.  She would be fine with kids over 8 yrs.  She is super sweet, super protective.  We’re not sure what happened in her past, but she needs a home that will be patient with her as she blossoms.  The best home for her would be one where she gets a lot of attention, there is no chaos and lots and lots of love can ensue!  She really should be in a home where there is another dog to help bring her out of her shell and someone around to give her lots of attention. A mature home would be fine, but she does get underfoot.  Do you have room on your lap for Marlowe?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
