These pets are available to adopt, along with a ton of other amazing pets at Marin Humane who deserve a great forever home!
Get to know Maisie:
Maisie is around 10 months old and we're still debating on her breed mix. The breeds we've been tossing around include, Smooth Collie, Australian Shepherd, Labrador & Golden Retrievers. We think our guesstimate of her age is pretty good though she may be a little older, she has really soft, puppy like fur and is sort of goofy like dogs are under 1 year old. We don't think she will get too much taller and at 75 pounds she is a little bit overweight, so this should be close to her adult-full-grown weight. When she first arrived at Marin Humane Maisie was a bit of a wall flower and seemed pretty shy. Well, a couple of weeks later and Maisie has shown herself to be an extrovert and the most likely dog at the party to end up with a lampshade on their head at the end of the night, this girl parties like it's December 31st 1999 all the time! Maisie has really enjoyed the company of other dogs and should be able to live with other dogs in the same household. Interactions with the dogs would need to be monitored pretty closely by adult humans to make sure Maisie minded her manners and was not too pushy. With exercise, training and guidance we think Maisie will be a great addition to most house holds. Maisie has shown us that she is pretty excited to chase things like flying birds and she has been very interested in getting to a rooster we have at the shelter - so we do not think Maisie would be good in a home with cats. Maisie is an adolescent and at the peak of her lifetime needs for exercise and training - if you step up to the challenge and meet those needs now you will be rewarded with an amazing companion who will join you on life's adventures. As we mentioned Maisie is pretty rambunctious and needs some help with her manners. We're working on this while Maisie is staying with us at the shelter. We do not think Maisie would be a good fit for a home with young children until she has some better manners. Our ideal home for Maisie is an active home with adult humans that want to take on some training responsibility with their new canine. Put in some work and you will have an amazing dog!
Get to know Max & Charlie:
Max and Charlie are social, friendly bonded boys and will be adopted together. Both enthusiastically greet their visitors with big purrs and lots of head bunting. Max is very fond of lap sitting and is a super snuggler. He will camp out in a lap and takes great pleasure in receiving chin and cheek scratches.
Charlie usually has something to say to us when we enter the room, then he is all about getting some love too. Both boys engage in play with the mouse wand toy but secretly (well, maybe not so secretly...) revel in getting and giving affection.
This social duo are the ultimate pair--sweet, loveable, mellow and so affectionate!
Get to know Tammy:
Tammy is a young active girl who loves playtime. She enjoys playing interactive games with the mouse wand toy. She also loves attention--gives head rubs, leg rubs and even jumps in your lap for attention--but Tammy does have a limit on petting and will let you know when she is done. She has a lot of energy and loves hanging out with people who will keep her busy. She just can't wait for her furever home.
Get to know Peppermint:
Sweet and super cute Peppermint came to us via rescue. She was in a shelter that has a hard time adopting out rabbits and we had room.
Currently she's in foster waiting for her for ever home. Her foster family tells us that she: likes to be petted for short periods of time; will climb onto a lap...especially for a treat; she's been fine around calm/quiet children but is easily overwhelmed by more active kids; she has lots of energy and needs space to burn it off and finally, she loves having a variety of toys to play with. We think a more Zen type of home will help her settle in quickly and stay calm. Peppermint is young and if well cared for should live to be 10-12 years old.
We also think she'd be fine for someone new to rabbits. If you looking for a beautiful young bun to keep you company ask about Peppermint. She may be just the right amount of love you need.
Tune into Marcus & Sandy every Friday to meet another cat or dog that could be your family's next pet.
