SEX:: Neutered male
AGE: Will turn 4 yrs in August.
Marco is current on all of his vaccines, is microchipped, heartworm negative, and is on preventative. He is housebroken, crate trained, he will now pretty much go in with the kennel command. He loves to have a bone with peanut butter when he is in his crate. He is very quiet all night in his crate. He is also good in the house-just wants to lay by you-he will usually drag his blanket out of his crate-then drag a bone out and lay and chew it on his blanket. He is good with other dogs and with cats also. Marco was used to teen aged children in his previous home.
Marco has a high retrieve drive and loves to retrieve. If he is not retrieveing, he loves to just hang out with you. He also likes to swim. He has not been hunt trained, but might do well with that-he is very birdy in the yard--maybe would do well with upland bird huntining. He releases about half of the time-and you can take the ball or kong from him.
Marco knows sit-he is working on down and stay- We have grown very fond of him here in his foster home. He really is a sweet boy. He gives sweet kisses- Marco is a definite Chessie- he wants to be near you--His ideal home will be a quiet one where he has consistency and kindness-not heavy hands on -but an in charge person/persons-someone who will give him the time to settle in without a lot of demands.
Marco likes to have exercise and a fenced yard is a requirement for him , as his recall is not where it should be, especially if he has his mind on retrieving .
