Marshall is a sweet, handsome boy who prior to rescue, ended up as a stray in a very crowded kill shelter in Oklahoma. Marshall is approximately 4 years old. He loves hanging out on the deck or couch with his humans, watching out the window for squirrels and rabbits. Marshall has gotten along very well with other dogs in his foster home in the past, after proper, slow introductions. He is however reactive around strange dogs and needs slow, managed, introductions over days to new dogs. Because of that, we would ideally like to place Marshall as an only dog. However, we could consider an experienced home with another laid-back dog his size, and owners who are willing to do slow introductions.
Marshall loves car rides and outings, and is thrilled any time that treats are involved, as he is very food motivated! He loves to go for walks and being outdoors with his humans.Marshall can be just a little bit shy with new people and situations, but is very sweet and warms up quickly. He knows sit, stay and shake, and loves to learn new things! He enjoys chew toys, pigs ears, and toys that squeak. Marshall is crate-trained and potty-trained. He is a lovable, very sweet and laid-back companion to have around the house. This handsome cuddlebug will make a lucky adopter very happy!
Like all German Shepherds, this sweet boy would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that he needs. Because of that, Marshall's ideal owner will have prior GSD, or similar breed experience. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, please remember that you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings, in order to provide sufficient stimulation, ward off boredom, and work on leash skills, and manners.
Marshall's adoption fee is $350, all of which goes back into offsetting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (treated if positive), and microchipped.

Why are Sponsorships & Donations so important?
HUGS provides dog food, supplies, necessary vet care (emergency, acute, routine), heartworm and flea/tick preventative to the HUGS foster dogs while they look for their forever homes. This can be quite costly and challenging in many ways. Additionally, some of the dogs that we rescue arrive sick or injured and require hospitalization, expensive surgery or long-term medications or other treatment. This places a huge strain on our vet fund, and can affect our ability to help future dogs.
Sadly, without sufficient funding to transport, vet/treat, feed the dogs that we take in, we could not continue saving them. As a volunteer group that runs solely on donations and adoptions fees, we truly need your support.
