Marlon is only 10 months old and will be a stocky, strong boy.  He has a nice square body and is nicely put together.  You can see he's gorgeous too.

Marlon came to us as an owner surrender.  He was much loved, but like all gsds, they grow quickly, needed training and consistent leadership.  Marlon soon outgrew his puppyhood, and became a big boy.  His family asked us to find him just the right home where he would get everything a smart german shepherd would need.

In short time, Marlon has learned to mind his manners on a leash.  He knows that when the right person is at the other end of the leash, he can trust his human to guide him into good behavior.  With one on one attention and training, he will be a model dog.  He is smart and can learn quickly.

Marlon was introduced to other dogs in his foster home.  He does well with all females, and does well with other non-dominant males.  He is a rough and tumble player with growls that make one think he's very mean.  He's not; he's actually just having a good time.

Marlon did not test well with Professional Test Kitty.  Kitty was not willing to even attempt to be friends.  We trust Kitty, so we are saying that Marlon would not be good with kitties.

Marlon is house trained, loves to go int he car, will be a great meet-the-public dog and will be a great companion, as long as his human remains a consistent leader.  Due to his age, strength, brains and lack of former training, Marlon is a level 3 dog.  He is in the East Bay.
